Liverpool woman charged over burglary of 101-year-old woman

A Liverpool woman has been charged with the attempted burglary of the home of a 101-year-old woman in the city.

Police said the offender tricked her way into the centenarian's house in Stoneycroft on Sunday by asking to use her phone.

The victim managed to hold on to her bag and the suspect left empty handed, said police.

A 42-year-old woman is due before Liverpool City Magistrates' Court later.

She is charged with two other unrelated counts of robbery: one in connection with an incident on the same day and another on Wednesday.
