Man arrested after violent robbery of girl caught on CCTV

Police have arrested a man after CCTV footage showed a 12-year-old girl in a violent struggle with a robber as he attempted to take her mobile phone.

Derbyshire Police released images of the moment the girl resisted her attacker on Cambridge Street in Derby on Sunday evening (18th of February), before he eventually ran off with her rose gold iPhone 6s. The 12-year-old was on her way home after running an errand to the local shops for her mother.

A 22-year-old man from Derby was arrested this morning (20th of February) on suspicion of robbery. Police say he's awaiting questioning.

They are urging anyone with information to contact them.
