Posted on 5th June 2018

A 39-year-old man has been released under investigation in relation to the robbery of a 100-year-old woman in Normanton.

Officers are continuing their investigations into the incident that occurred at around 8.45am on Monday, May 28, close to the junction of St Chads Road and Empress Road in Normanton.

The woman, who has a broken neck and bruising to her face, said she was approached from behind, knocked over and had her handbag stolen.

The bag, which is green, made of fake leather and has gold clasps, was found at the junction of Moore Street and Normanton Road.

Officers are today again asking for anyone who has any information regarding the incident to come forward.

They are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen a beige Seat Leon which was seen close to where the incident took place. The car was found abandoned two days later on Wednesday, May 30, in a car park in Jackson Street, Stockbrook.

We want to hear from anyone who may have information about the driver of the vehicle – or if you have CCTV or dash cam footage that shows the vehicle with registration plate SL02 KVZ.

If you have information you can call us on 101 with reference 18*243815 or you can ring Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
