A man who robbed a 102-year-old relative has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Ghulam Qudir, from Almond Street in Derby, stole the jewellery after visiting earlier in the day to pay his respects following a family death.

But the 34year-old later returned to the Long Eaton address once the victim was alone, forcing his way into the house.

After restraining her, he stole gold bangles from her wrists, injuring her in the process.

He also removed her earrings, glasses and hearing aid, throwing them on the floor before leaving.

Detective Constable, Claire Croll said: “This was a callous and pre-meditated robbery of a vulnerable person who Qudir knew would not be able to fight back or raise the alarm.

“This sentence reflects the severity of the crime and I am pleased that this may give the victim and her family some comfort that justice has been done.”

He was found guilty of robbery during a trial at Nottingham Crown Court and sentenced on Monday, October 15.
