Man arrested after assault in Montreux

A man who assaulted an elderly woman with a knife in Montreux railway station before stealing her handbag has been arrested.

Thanks to CCTV images, Vaud cantonal police managed to identify the 27 year old as he was already known to them for crimes against property and drug use.

He was arrested on Sunday morning with the collaboration of the Riviera Police.

Some of the items from the lady's handbag were found at his home, although he'd already spent some of the money.
