“The women left the car and the group got in, colliding with the Spa shop before driving off.

“The car was later found abandoned."

Police subsequently arrested four people, including a 30-year-old man.

On Wednesday afternoon, officers said he had been charged with aggravated taking without consent; no licence; no insurance; theft; possession of a bladed article and public order.

Derbyshire Constabulary asked the Derbyshire Times not to name the 30-year-old man, citing ‘concerns for his welfare’.

He is due to appear at crown court on July 6.

The other three suspects were released on bail.
