Man Arrested After Elderly Women Robbed In Ashfield

17th October 2018
News, Ashfield

A 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of three robberies after elderly women had their handbags stolen in the Sutton-in-Ashfield area last week.

 

The first incident happened in Woods Hill, Sutton-in-Ashfield on 10 October when an 86-year-old woman was robbed in the street.

At around 5.20pm on Saturday 13 October, a 78-year-old woman was robbed in an alleyway between Cowpes Close and Stoneyford Road.

The following day a 68-year-old woman was pulled to the ground after trying to keep hold of her bags during the incident in Main Road, Jacksdale, at around 4pm (Sunday 14 October).

 

There was a second robbery reported to on Saturday (13 October) in Blackwell Road, an hour before the incident in Stoneyford Road.

Enquiries are on-going and officers would like to hear from anyone in the area that may have seen anything to call us on 101, quoting incident number 616 of 13 October.

 

The 20-year-old was then further arrested on suspicion of burglary and a sexual offence in connection with an unrelated incident. He remains in police custody.
