Why is it that the left always targets the weak and those that have a hard time defending themselves?
Whether it be babies, deceased vets or the elderly, they always target those they feel can’t defend themselves.
On Tuesday, 27 June, the 92-year-old victim was walking north on Hoxton Street in Hackney at approximately 14:40hrs. She had just been to post a letter and was heading to the Lawson Medical Centre on Nuttall Street.
Her route took her past the Papa Johns Pizzeria before she turned right into an alleyway that leads to the medical centre.
The suspect followed her from the street into the alleyway. As she entered the grounds of the medical centre she was attacked from behind. The man made several attempts to grab her bag; he used such force that she was pulled to the ground.
The victim, who was screaming, refused to let go of her bag, so the suspect dragged her until she was in so much pain that she eventually let go.
The suspect ran back into the alleyway and turned right heading north on Hoxton Street.
The woman sustained extensive bruising all over her body. The most severe bruising was on her ribs and side of the body where she was dragged along the floor. She also has a three inch bruise to her left arm from where the handbag dragged on her arm.
The victim, who recently lost her husband of nearly 70 years, is currently being supported by her family, including her niece who described how she is incredibly distraught, nervous and does not wish to be named out of fear. She is now terrified of leaving the house and has lost her independence.
