A FURTHER arrest has been made after a pregnant woman was robbed at knifepoint in Kinver.

A woman, in her 30s, was approached by two people before being threatened with a machete to her face on Whittington Hall Lane, while she was on a dog walk at Bunkers Hill wood at around 7am on June 12.

The group then took her car keys and drove away in the black Ford Focus, leaving the woman shaken but not injured at the scene.

The car was seen at Merry Hill, Dudley, at around 8:30pm on the same day.
