Thief steals from good Samaritan

A man who stole the purse of a woman who helped him when he was knocked off his bike has been jailed for 12 months.

Darren Stephens, who's 41, had been invited into the pensioner's house in Peterborough.

When the 87 year old good samaritan realised what had happened she called the police.

Stephens was arrested after forensic experts recovered his DNA from a glass of water he had drunk.
