Detectives continue to investigate a number of robberies and thefts in Norwich after arresting a man yesterday (Thursday 16 November 2017).

The robberies took place between 30 October and 15 November, where a number of elderly women have been robbed of their handbags at various locations in the city.

The man, aged in his 40s, was taken to Wymondham Police Investigation Centre and questioned. He has subsequently been released but remains under investigation whilst the enquiry continues.

Whilst the man in his 40s has been ‘released under investigation’ he has since been returned to prison for breaching the terms of his licence in relation to previous unrelated offences.
