Pensioner Mugging

A homeless man who knocked over a 92 year old while mugging him in Soho for just five pounds has been jailed for two and a half years.

Solomon Bygraves, 29, conned his victim Stanley Evans by pretending he was going to help him with his wheelie bag as he returned from a shopping trip.

But once in the block of flats he lunged for the pensioner's wallet, knocking Mr Evans to the ground.

In shocking CCTV footage played at London's Southwark Crown Court, Bygraves is then seen to run off as the grey-haired pensioner falls to the floor. He remained lying in the entrance to the flats in Soho, central London, for ten minutes after the attack on January 31.

Bygraves, who has 21 convictions for 49 different offences including two for robbery, smirked during parts of the sentence.

Met Police have released CCTV footage of a 92 year old man being attacked, robbed and assaulted for just a fiver. The pensioner was left on the ground for more than five minutes after being targeted by the robber when he came back from a shopping trip in Westminster.

In a letter to the judge Bygraves admitted the attack was the "most horrible, horrific, shameful crime" he has committed.
