A MAN questioned after a robbery in which a pensioner was allegedly tied up has been released by police.

The 49-year-old suspect, who has not been named, was arrested on Wednesday for conspiracy to rob over the alleged incident in Spring Walk, Clifton, on Tuesday.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said the man had now been “released under investigation as enquiries continue”.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 quoting incident number 810 of September 5.
