A man has been arrested over the attempted mugging of a mobility scooter user.

Police said a 29-year-old man was quizzed earlier this week over an incident in which a pensioner was targeted by a would-be thief.

A 76-year-old woman was riding home after withdrawing cash from a post office when a man tried to grab her bag on struck on Church Road, Denaby, on Thursday, September 17.

Because the OAP had tied the bag to her scooter the man was unable to steal it.
