A heavily pregnant woman has suffered cuts and abrasions after a man dragged her down a concrete walkway while snatching her handbag in Sydney's west.

The 23-year-old woman, who is nine months pregnant, was walking from Canley Vale Station to meet her husband last night when her bag was snatched.

The offender has been described as being aged in his 20s with a medium build and short brown hair, wearing a grey tracksuit top with blue stripes.
