10:13am Friday 11th October 2013 in News
A STOURBRIDGE man has been charged with robbery in connection with a car-jacking attempt on a pub landlady as she drove takings to the post office.
Sean Fitzgerald, Armstrong Close, Penfields, will appear in court this morning to hear accusations he dragged the 56-year-old woman from her Porsche as she pulled up in Junction Road.
The 38-year-old was arrested by West Midlands Police in Vicarage Road, Amblecote, on Wednesday and after questioning by detectives was last night charged with robbery.
He is scheduled to appear before Dudley magistrates this morning.
A 31-year-old man from Wordsley, Stourbridge, has been bailed until a date in November when he will return to a police station for more questioning.
Following the robbery on September 28, police praised a passing 13-year-old boy who ran to the victim's aid, urged a friend to call 999, and flagged down a motorist who then challenged the woman's attackers.
