According to the article, the thieves left the poor woman's house with a large sum of money, anyone would call this theft because I doubt that the victim gave them the money of her own free will!

A 46-year-old woman from Bournemouth was arrested on suspicion of robbery.

Lets hope they add assault and whoever committed the crime goes down for 5 years.

I meant to comment on the statement that this was an 'alleged' robbery - either it was a robbery or it was not - less of this alleged rubbish!

Really excellent quality picture again, how is ti the council can photograph a number plate on a car illegally parked but other cameras cant get a good quality photo of someone committing a serious crime, could it be that one earns revenue and the other doesn't.

It's alleged until it's proven in a court of law. Pretty fundemental really, or is it beyond your comprehension?

So the unfortunate lady needs to prove in court that the 'large sum of money' which is 'allegedly' missing from her possession is actually hers?
I can understand the conjunction of allegedly and thief.

Why do people bother campaigning against CCTV? In most cases you can't even recognise a individual so your privacy is quite safe! Would have been good in this instance if it had worked!!

First off, the prosecution have to prove something happened and that it broke a law, then they have to prosecute someone for doing it. It's possible that something didn't happen, was not breaking a law or that the accused did not do it. Hence why at this stage it's alleged. Also the lady in question is just a witness and has to prove nothing. Try educating yourself!

So the 80 year old woman hurt hersel and went/was taken to the hospital and no money was missing.
Is that what you meant to say?
She actually might have done it all to herself just to get some attention? I really don't think so.
