After realising her bag was missing, she followed a woman that was in the immediate area, asking for it to be returned.

A physical struggle followed where it is further alleged that the victim was hit to the face and then kicked in the head while she was on the floor.

Police arrested a 30-year-old woman nearby and have charged her with possession of a methylamphetamine, stealing and aggravated robbery.

She will appear in the Perth Magistrates Court today.

The victim attended was treated for cuts and bruising to her head at Royal Perth Hospital.
