Man Sent To Jail For Robbery Of Elderly Woman In Sudbury

A man has been sentenced to two years in prison after the robbery of an elderly woman in Sudbury earlier this year.
 
Gareth Davies, aged 33 of Raleigh Road, Sudbury pleaded guilty to the robbery of a 79-year-old woman in an alleyway in Market Hill on Saturday 5 April 2014.
 
Davies pushed past the victim, causing her to lose her balance and then stole her handbag which was sitting on top of her mobility frame. At the time police released CCTV images of the incident to gather information. He was sentenced yesterday, Thursday 3 July, at Ipswich Crown Court.
 
Detective Inspector Nick Power from Bury CID said: "Davies preyed on this vulnerable elderly victim, whilst she was walking down an alleyway with her walking frame, making this a particularly despicable crime.   
 
"The victim was understandably very shaken and so distressed from the incident she was unable to talk for some time. Every effort was made to catch this offender as soon as possible and I hope that this sentence goes to show that robbery remains a priority for Suffolk Police and that offenders will be punished for their crimes.”
