Man charged after Perth pensioner robbed

A 30-year-old man has been charged in connection with the theft of a handbag from a pensioner in Perth.

The 73-year-old woman was robbed as she walked past the AK Bell Library in York Place at about 13:10 on 14 August.

Officers returned to the scene a week after the incident, which they described as "particularly alarming", to appeal for information.

A Tayside Division spokeswoman said the man was expected to appear at Perth Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
