POLICE have found a car used in a roadside robbery which left a 90-year-old woman badly hurt.
Mrs Connie Mitchell suffered head injuries when a man leaned out of a car and grabbed her handbag as she walked on Coniston Road in Meltham, on Monday, February 27.
She fell to the ground and hit her head on the pavement as the handbag was wrenched from her grasp.
She remains seriously ill in the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
Police arrested two Halifax men, aged 24 and 25, on Monday. They have been bailed pending further inquiries.
Officers have also recovered the car used in the crime. It is a blue Citroen AX, registration number K225 HWY.
The car was seen at Morrisons petrol station in Meltham on the morning of the robbery and had been bought from a garage in Luddenden Foot, near Halifax, on February 22.
At that time the car had a Union Jack painted on the roof, but this had gone before the robbery and the car had new wheel trims.
The man who bought the car was white, in his 30s with brown hair.
Det Supt Andy Brennan said: "Where was this car between February 22 and March 6 when the car was found?
"Who was using it or painted the roof. Where did the new wheel trims come from?"
