A WOMAN was kicked in the face by a mugger who had followed her to her Camden Town home in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The 41-year-old was walking in Wilmot Place at around 1am when she noticed her attacker walking behind her.
The man grabbed her handbag and pulled it from her shoulder. The frightened victim fell to the ground but she refused to let go of her bag. The robber then turned violent and kicked her in the face before fleeing towards St Pancras Way with her handbag.
She was left in shock and sustained a cut to her arm in the robbery.
