Pair Guilty Of Leaving Pensioner For Dead In Ely
Two men found guilty of attacking and robbing a pensioner and leaving him for dead in Ely.
Lee Jones, 33, and Sebastian Yellowe, 23, attacked the victim, who is now 68, as he walked home through Cherry Hill Park after a night out with friends.
They stole his mobile phone, wedding ring, a bank card and some cash and left him on the ground with serious facial injuries.
Police were alerted at about 12.45am on October 16 last year after the victim's wife found him semi-conscious in the park.
She had been expecting him home at 10.30pm the previous day but had become concerned when he did not arrive.
The victim was taken to hospital and was only discharged earlier this year.
Police inquiries led to Jones and Yellowe, who were found guilty of robbery and causing grievous bodily harm with intent today (May 5), following a trial at King's Lynn Crown Court.
They were remanded for sentencing at Norwich Crown Court at a later date.
DC Peter Ware said: "This was a cowardly and vicious attack on the victim who took months to full recover from his injuries.
"I hope this result today will give him and his family some comfort that justice has been done."
