A Derby man has been jailed for nine years after robbing a 71 year-old woman in her home at knife point.
Anthony Ormond, 30, of Parker Street, received the sentence on Monday, November 6, at Birmingham Crown Court, having been found guilty of Robbery.
The offence took place in nearby Leyland Gardens on Friday, May 5 when Mr Ormond entered the vulnerable woman’s home, threatened her at knife point and stole her bag containing a quantity of cash.
PC Chris Shelton, who investigated the offence, said: “This was a very nasty offence against an elderly, vulnerable woman.
“Mr Ormond was caught on CCTV in the flat complex but denied the offence, meaning the victim then had to re-live her ordeal in court.
“The jury, having heard all the evidence and watching the CCTV, unanimously found him guilty and he has now been given a substantial prison sentence.
“We are pleased that a dangerous individual is now behind bars and can think about how his actions have affected this vulnerable victim.”
We have made a short film that highlights the particularly nasty nature of this offence and shows how the CCTV helped to convict Mr Ormond.
