Martine McCutcheon robbed
13:30 31 October 2006
Martine McCutcheon was left petrified after being robbed by a violent thug in her car.
The former 'EastEnders' actress was driving her 4X4 car through London and had stopped outside a chemist.
As the 30-year-old beauty returned to the vehicle after having done her shopping, the criminal jumped into her vehicle and stole her handbag.
A friend of Martine's said: "Martine screamed and just said, 'Please, no.' His face was covered the whole time. He grabbed her bag and jumped out. Two blokes chased him but he got away."
The bag reportedly contained the 'Love Actually' actress' personal belongings, some make-up and a TV script.
A suspect has been arrested in connection with the incident, and London police are continuing with their inquiries.
