Police pledge over Wilton mugging

POLICE have vowed to continue their investigation into the mugging of an 81-year old lady in Wilton Hill Terrace in October.

In response to a query from Councillor Stuart Marshall at this week’s Teviot and Liddesdale Area Committee, Inspector Paula Clark replied: “The case is still active and I believe we can still get some vital information into this robbery. I would urge anyone who has any information, however trivial, to get in touch. It could be the final piece in the jigsaw we need to bring this to a conclusion.”

The lady was knocked to the ground and robbed at around 9.30pm om Friday, October 21.
