A man has been charged following an attempted robbery in Waterfoot in East Lancashire.
Police said at about 9.30am on February 5 a 19-year-old woman had withdrawn some money from a cash point close to the Post Office in Burnley Road East.
She passed the money to her brother, 10, sitting in the passenger seat of the woman’s car.
A man, in possession of a knife, approached the car and allegedly attempted to take the money but, following a struggle with the victims, fled the scene empty-handed.
Following a CCTV appeal, Daniel Shaw, 32, of Tunstead Mill Terrace, Bacup, was arrested and charged with attempted robbery.
He has been remanded to appear at Burnley Magistrates Court today (February 13).
