Men arrested over Smethwick Asian gold thefts

Two men are being questioned after at least eight women had jewellery grabbed from them as they walked alone in the West Midlands.

The two 18-year-olds were arrested after a woman had her Asian gold chain snatched from around her neck as she walked along Smethwick High Street.

The men are being questioned about seven incidents of a similar nature, all in Smethwick, since 17 March.

They were arrested during Friday afternoon.
