Woman, 104, arrested at care home by police


Anne Brokenbrow cheekily grinned as officers "arrested" her inside a care home and bundled her into a waiting police car.

A 104-year-old woman has ticked off another item on her bucket list after being arrested by the police.

Anne Brokenbrow, who has never fallen foul of the law, cheekily grinned as officers "detained" her inside a care home and bundled her into a waiting police car.

She had revealed her desire to be arrested as part of a charity scheme where residents write down what they want most at Stokeleigh Care Home in Bristol.

She wrote: "My wish is... to be arrested. I am 104 and I have never been on the wrong side of the law."

Anne, who has dementia, was put in handcuffs by PC Stephen Harding and his colleague PCSO Kelly Foyle before being taken for a drive by the officers.

She said: "I had a lovely day, it was interesting. Nothing like that ever happened to me before. They put the handcuffs on, I had the lot.

"What did it feel like being a criminal? Well, it will make me much more careful of what I say and do. But the police were very nice throughout."
