Two people have been charged after a pensioner’s handbag was snatched in the Broad Street area of Peterhead yesterday.
A man and woman, both aged 24, have now been charged after the woman, in her 80s, was targeted at about 4pm.
Sergeant James Callander said: “Thankfully the woman was not injured following this incident and the handbag has been recovered however she has naturally been left extremely shaken.
“Once again I would like to thank the members of the public who were in the area at the time and who assisted the victim and the police. I would also like to thank the community for its support while enquiries were carried out.”
The pair are expected to appear at Peterhead Sheriff Court today.
