Police have launched an investigation after an amateur photographer suffered a heart attack when yobs tried to steal his camera.
Two men on a stolen motorbike, with false number plates, tried to snatch the camera as the 69-year-old took pictures of flowers in Priory Park in Dudley on Tuesday 28 July around 2.30pm.
The gentleman, who regularly strolls through the park, already had an existing heart condition and the shock of the robbery attempt brought on an immediate attack.
More than 150 drink- and drug-drive suspects have been caught during a summer blitz on motorists who put lives at risk.
Throughout June, West Midlands Police and the Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG) ran roadside checkpoints and patrolled in unmarked vehicles to catch offenders.
