A man is to stand trial accused of robbing a 90-year-old woman in Leicester.

The "elderly and vulnerable" victim suffered a broken wrist when she was pushed into the road after getting off a bus on Aylestone Drive in October.

Her attacker stole money and a bank card.

A 20-year-old man denied a charge of robbery at Leicester magistrates on 14 February. His trial will take place at the city's crown court on 23 May.

He was arrested in the Bedford area, said Leicestershire Police.
