TWO men have been arrested in connection with a robbery which left a 90-year-old woman in hospital. Mrs Connie Mitchell suffered head injuries when a man leaned out of a car and grabbed her handbag as she walked at Coniston Road in Meltham last Monday morning. She fell to the floor and hit her head on the pavement when the handbag was wrenched from her grasp. Police yesterday arrested two men, aged 24 and 25, from Halifax. They were being questioned at Huddersfield police station today. Mrs Mitchell has lived in Meltham for the past 50 years and is now recovering at home. Shirley Watson, of Meltham, said: "Connie is a wonderful person. We could just not believe it happened to her."
