Before rushing into conclusions, this 104-year-old grandma was ‘arrested ‘not for the reasons people are arrested for, but because of what the police force terms, ‘unusual request’. Anne Brokenbrow, who stands as a living embodiment of a 'law-abiding citizen' wants an ‘arrest’ as her bucket list. The 104-year-old grandma, who has never been on the wrong side of the law says she wants to be arrested as part of a charity scheme where residents wrote down what they wanted most.
Complying to her wishes, Police have agreed to 'arrest' Anne Brokenbrow on Wednesday, where she was taken into the custody for the first time ever. Mrs Brokenbrow said she’d had “a lovely day” because “nothing like that had ever happened” to her before.
She added, “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.”
PCSO Kelly Foyle helped in the arrest and described it as “the most unusual request” the police force has had.
“This all started when I received an email for the charity,” she said.
“We're part of the neighbourhood police team - this is our beat - and this is the most unusual request we've ever had certainly.”
She added, “She did come quietly, and she wanted to be handcuffed so we very gently applied the handcuffs and escorted her down to the police car.”
Home manager Alex said adds that Anne, who has been in the resident for 11 months also has a great sense of humour and will also be the first a resident to be arrested by police.
