Cedric Anthony Brown charged with robbery and kidnap

Martin Lindop, Sector Crown Prosecutor at Crown Prosecution Service in the West Midlands, said:

"Following an incident on Court Lane Erdington on the 3rd April in which a woman was dragged from her car and the car driven off still containing her two young children, I can confirm that we advised West Midlands Police that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to charge Cedric Anthony Brown, aged 44, with an offence of robbery, two offences of kidnap and one of possession of an offensive weapon.

"The defendant will appear this morning before Birmingham Magistrates' court for a first appearance."
