Pair face court over shock assault on man with walking stick

West Midlands Police have charged a man over a shocking bus stop robbery in which a man with a walking stick was beaten to the floor with a metal bar.

The force released CCTV footage on Friday (16 August) showing the victim, a man in his 50s, being bundled to the floor, kicked and assaulted by two men who tried rummaging through his pockets.

Detectives yesterday arrested 24-year-old Tayub Zaman, from Cherrywood Road in Bordesley Green, in connection with the incident.
