Katherine Jenkins, 39, was caught up in a street theft in London on her way to perform at the Straubenzee Memorial charity carol service at St Luke's Church. It has been reported that as she walked along King’s Road, she spotted an elderly woman being robbed by two teenage girls, in what witnesses described as an “extremely violent” incident.
But as a result of intervening in the incident, Katherine was robbed herself, according to the Mail Online.
Katherine waited for officers to arrive at the scene and she was later able to help police identify the attackers.
Pictures obtained by the publication show a visibly distressed Katherine speaking with the officers following the street theft.
Katherine’s spokesperson confirmed the incident and told MailOnline that the star had seen the elderly woman being attacked and had gone over to assist her, before falling victim herself.
