A pregnant woman suffered a miscarriage the day after she was beaten, kicked and thrown to the ground by a thief in the street.
Lauren Reece Flay, 25, was on her way to work on the night of Friday, September 13, when she was attacked in Southfield, Hessle in Yorkshire, just after she left the city train station.
The mother-of-one was dragged around by her attacker before he left with her phone and a small amount of cash.
Lauren had two broken ribs on her left and bruises on her chest.
Without her phone, she went looking for help before being taken to Hull Royal Infirmary and the next day she was told that she had had a miscarriage.
She had only recently discovered that she was pregnant a few days before the attack.

Speaking of the attack and miscarriage, Lauren said: “I was literally pregnant early. We only found out within that week.
& # 39; When the ambulance first arrived, I didn't have a stomachache. I just wanted to go home to my son and be in my own place.
& # 39; But then on Saturday I started to hurt a little. When they told me I knew immediately.
& # 39; I was shocked but expected it. It is honest. I was enthusiastic about it. I told my sister and my friends that I was really looking forward to that. & # 39;
The man who carried out the attack was described as white, in his & # 39; 20, slim-built, with a black Northface jacket, gray joggers and a black baseball cap.
Lauren, who has an 11-month-old son, says she saw her attacker before she boarded the Hull to Sheffield-bound train at Hull Paragon.
She said: & I always take the 8:48 PM train and tonight there was a man in his early twenties who behaved strangely, but I didn't think about it too much.

& # 39; I just thought it was a Friday night and maybe he was doing something and I wasn't too interested.
& # 39; As the train was running, he walked up and down the aisle and then I started to worry a bit.
& # 39; He then sat down at my table and kept staring at me. He picked up his phone and talked to a partner and it sounded like he was going to Sheffield.
& # 39; When the train stopped at Hessle, I stood in front of the door and stood up to get off, which I found strange, because I thought he got off at Sheffield.
& # 39; He then tried to get off the train on the other side where the tracks were, so I told him: & # 39; you have to get off this side, you don't want to end up dead & # 39;. & # 39;
As Lauren got off the train, she began to fiddle her way to work, hoping the strange man would bypass her on the bridge at the station – but he didn't.

Lauren kept walking past Southfield when she was beaten and grabbed by her alleged attacker.
She said: “He never passed me by, I thought it was a bit strange.
& # 39; I walked on and put on my headphones and when I knew the next thing, he hit me in the chest and then again and dragged me around.
& # 39; He even kicked me in the legs & # 39 ;.
It is said that another man led Lauren and her attacker when they got off the train, which they think might help.
She said: & # 39; There was another man in front of us, but he was walking at normal pace.
& # 39; The way the man walked after the attack was in the same direction as the other man, so I thought he might have passed him. & # 39;
Lauren returned to work for the first time yesterday after the attack and said she & # 39; nervous & # 39; was to get on the train again.
She has trouble leaving her home because it happened and said the attack shook her & # 39; has left behind.
Lauren said: & # 39; This man was young. He looked like a skinny boy. He had nothing specific about him or tattoos that I could see or something like that.
& # 39; It's not like he was a big stocky guy, so it got me paranoid to a point where I think what if he was bigger or had a knife – it got me shaking.
& # 39; I haven't really left the house since it happened. I just spent the winter.
& # 39; You just don't expect this to happen to you, especially in Hessle. It is supposed to be a beautiful place. & # 39;
The Humberside police yesterday, on September 24, appealed to anyone who saw what happened or could help with their questions to contact them by calling their non-emergency number 101 stating log 593 13/09/9 19.
