Girl, 13, charged with Kidderminster distraction-type burglary
1:42pm Thursday 26th September 2013 in Local
A 13-year-old girl has been charged in connection with a distraction-type burglary in Kidderminster.
The teenager called at the home of an elderly couple in the Sutton Farm area at about 4.45pm on Monday.
She went to the open back door and requested money for a sponsored run.
When the elderly woman went into the house to get her purse, the girl followed her in.
The victim gave her £2 and the girl left but the woman later realised a mobile phone had been stolen from the lounge.
The girl will appear before Kidderminster youth court on October 9.
