A man described by police as among Britain’s most wanted criminals has been arrested in a vehicle carjacked from a young mother — and found with her two toddlers still strapped in the back seats.
West Midlands police rushed to the Birmingham suburb of Erdington on Tuesday following reports of a burglary in progress. Minutes later, three men were spotted running from a suspected getaway car.
“One dragged a female driver out of a Ford Focus and sped away with her one-year-old son and daughter, aged two, secured in their child seats,” a spokesman for the West Midlands force said in a statement.
The man was cornered by police about a mile away and arrested after a violent struggle. The Press Association named him as Cedric Brown, citing police sources.
