The woman was shopping with her 19-month-old son at a supermarket on the corner of High and Archer Sts, at about 4.30
Shepparton police Senior Constable Peter Aitken said the woman, 32, was buying her son a toy from a vending machine when a man snatched her handbag from her trolley.
Sen Const Aitken said the incident was a troubling one.
‘‘Obviously the offender is targeting the more vulnerable in our community and that’s concerning,’’ Sen Const Aitken said.
The man fled and proceeded to use the Shepparton woman’s credit card to purchase goods from a liquor store and the supermarket.
The man is believed to be of Aboriginal appearance, aged in his 30s, with black hair and a goatee-style beard.
