We have arrested a man following an aggravated burglary at a home in South Staffordshire.
It happened just before 5.30pm on Tuesday (12 September) at a home in Brewood.
The suspect broke into the home and threatened a woman in her 70s. He took her phone, watch and car keys and escaped after driving away in her Citroen which was parked on the drive.
The victim was left shaken following the ordeal. She is continuing to be supported by officers who have been working hard to progress their enquiries at pace.
Yesterday night (13 September), we found the stolen car in Wolverhampton.
A 39-year-old man, from Wolverhampton, has since been arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary, dangerous driving and failing to stop.
He remains in custody and is being questioned by officers.
We understand the distress this incident caused the victim and her family. Our enquiries are progressing at speed and we are continuing to support her throughout the investigation.
We are still keen to speak to anyone with any information, particularly those with CCTV, dashcam or doorbell footage from the area at the time.
Call us on 101, quoting incident 565 of 12 September, or message us using Live Chat on our website – www.staffordshire.police.uk
