Two men from Stevenage have been found guilty of attacking and robbing a pensioner and leaving him for dead in Ely.

The attack took place in Cherry Hill Park as the 68-year-old victim walked home after a night out last October.

Lee Jones, 33, of Skegness Road in Stevenage, and Sebastian Yellowe, 23, of Langthorne Avenue in Stevenage, stole his phone and wedding ring and left him 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.

Today, the two men were found guilty of robbery and causing grievous bodily harm with intent, following a trial at King's Lynn Crown Court.

They will be sentenced at a later date.

"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."
