Robber jailed for mugging
A ROBBER who stole an elderly lady’s handbag and left her “badly injured” has been jailed for seven years.
Sean Ryan was found guilty of mugging the 79-year-old victim, as well as committing four burglaries in Coventry, following a three-day trial at the city’s crown court.
The robbery saw the pensioner knocked the floor before having her bag stolen in Cross Street, Long Lawford, on December 19, 2015.
Ryan, 24, of Holbrook Road, Rugby, who had denied the charge, was sentenced to five years in prison for the robbery, plus another two years behind bars for the burglaries in Coventry.
