Man arrested after pensioner shoved at Princes Street cash machine

A man has been arrested in connection with an attack on an 84-year-old as she withdrew money from a cash machine in Edinburgh during broad daylight.

The woman was at the cash machine, outside the RBS branch at the west end of Princes Street, at 11:30 on Monday when she was shoved.

The robber then demanded she hand over cash but she refused and walked off.

The 57-year-old man is due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court at a later date.
