A man has been jailed for four and a half years after he robbed an elderly couple in Poole.
Marek Merrifield attacked the couple along Stalbridge Road in November 2013.
The 79-year-old woman was walking alongside her 84-year-old husband, who was in a mobility scooter, when Merrifield grabbed her handbag, causing her to fall backwards.
Her husband tried to help but Merrifield pushed him to the ground.
Detective Constable Will Burnett, of Bournemouth and Poole CID, said:
It was fortunate that they were not seriously injured, however, they were very shaken up and are only just coming to terms with what happened to them.
