The red Royal Mail shoulder bag, containing the woman's handbag, was grabbed by the thief as she walked along Whitechapel Road near Argos at 1.50pm last Wednesday before jumping onto a waiting number 25 bus, which closed its doors and drove off.
The victim's handbag contained her own personal property and no Royal Mail property was stolen during the robbery.
Police have described the mugger as a white man, around 5ft 7ins tall, wearing blue jeans with a dark grey hooded top with the hood up.
