A man was arrested on suspicion of murder Thursday after a 100-year-old woman died from multiple injuries — including a broken neck — when her purse was stolen during a robbery on a street in Britain, officials said. Derbyshire Police said the 39-year-old man, who has not yet been identified, was previously arrested on suspicion of robbing 100-year-old Zofija Kaczan on May 28. He was released and re-arrested on Thursday. The incident occurred around 8:45 a.m. in the town of Normanton, 125 miles north of London. The 100-year-old woman died from her injuries on Wednesday.

“This crime is absolutely horrific,” said Detective Chief Inspector Darren De’ath. “Mrs. Kaczan was a well-loved member of the community and that she was targeted in this way is disgusting.”

The 100-year-old told officers she was approached from behind, knocked over and had her handbag stolen. Her green leather bag was found a half-mile away with one handle ripped off. While one man has been arrested, authorities are asking the public if anyone may have seen a beige Seat Leon car with the license plate SL02 KVZ close to where the mugging took place.
