A MAN has been arrested in connection with a robbery in Kidderminster.

The robbery happened in Broad Street between about 4.45pm and 5.35pm on Wednesday, February 26 after the 52-year-old victim placed an advert in a shop to sell an MP3 player and was contacted by someone who arranged to meet him outside the Peacock pub.

The man led the victim to the junction of Broad Street and Churchfields, where he grabbed the Apple iPod Mini out of the victim’s hands and walked off in the direction of St Mary’s Church. The victim sustained a minor finger injury as he tried to hold on to the iPod, but did not require medical treatment.

A 32-year-old Kidderminster man was arrested on Thursday, March 6, and released on police bail until March 18, pending further inquiries.
