Officer instinct and a police chase led to two men being arrested on suspicion of robbery on Tuesday afternoon (2 November).
Officers from the force’s Roads Policing Unit were on mobile patrol in the area of Ashby Road, Loughborough, at around 2.45pm when they requested for a black Astra car to stop.
While the car was reported to have initially stopped, it was then driven off at speed.
Police followed the car which was abandoned nearby in the area of Barnsdale Close with two people reportedly running from the vehicle.
At the same time, officers became aware of a report of a robbery which had just happened in the area of Russell Street, Loughborough. It was suspected that the vehicle was linked to the report.
A man had reportedly been assaulted with his wallet being stolen. The victim suffered minor injuries in the incident.
