Second man arrested after car robbery in Stourbridge
12:01pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
A SECOND man was arrested in Amblecote yesterday (Wednesday) on suspicion of robbing a woman in Stourbridge.
A 56-year-old woman was parked in a Porsche Boxster on Junction Road on Saturday September 28, when two men opened her car door and threatened her with what appeared to be a knife.
They demanded she hand over the keys and stole a bag from the passenger seat, which contained a large amount of cash.
They were stopped in their tracks when a 13-year-old boy saw the drama and flagged down a passing motorist.
The driver jumped out of his car and ran to the woman, dragging one of the alleged robbers from the car.
When the alleged offender tried to flee, the brave motorist chased him and wrestled him to the ground.
The suspected thief then jumped up and ran away, leaving the car keys and cash behind.
The woman wasn't injured during the ordeal.
A man, aged 31, was arrested on October 1 from an address in Wordsley, on suspicion of robbery, and has been bailed until November.
The second man, aged 38, was arrested yesterday (October 9), in Amblecote, also on suspicion of robbery.
He remains in police custody.
