He was due to be questioned and placed on identification parades on Tuesday.

The suspect was the main individual being sought by the police following a robbery of a 26-year-old woman along Gallus Street, Woodbrook.

The incident took place at about 3:3 0pm on Wednesday and was captured on nearby CCTV cameras. The footage shows a man attempting to rob the woman of her cellular phone, however, she resisted.

 

As a result, she was assaulted in full view of her two-year-old son.

A second man walked up to the two and pulled the assailant away from the woman.

The assailant then “rushed in” once again and snatched a gold chain from the neck of the 26-year-old woman.

He then made good his escape.

The victim made a report to Woobrook Police Station and sought medical treatment.

More on this as it becomes available.
