A man has been arrested after video footage showed a woman in her 80s being dragged to the ground during a daylight mugging.

The incident, which took place in Sittingbourne, Kent, sparked a manhunt on Facebook after someone shared footage captured on a nearby CCTV camera.

In the recording, an elderly woman can be seen making her way across a road with her walking stick before a silver car pulls up opposite her.

A man gets out of the vehicle and walks briskly past the woman towards a shop, where he appears to peer through the window before suddenly walking back in the direction he came from.

The pair appear to have a brief exchange before the man snatches the victim’s bag, sending her flying to the ground.
