Pair jailed for ‘disgraceful’ £10 robbery


Duo targeted OAP

A MAN and a woman who callously robbed a frail pensioner for just £10 have been jailed.

Imran Arif, 20, and Leanne Twist, 22, were charged and sentenced at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court.

Arif was sentenced to five and a half years in prison and Twist was jailed for five years.

The Court was told the pair broke into a gated apartment complex and forced open the door of a frail 81-year-old man.

The pensioner, who was home at the time of the incident, only had a small amount of cash in the flat and Arif and Twist fled with just £10.

The man sadly died a short tine after the robbery.

Inspector Paul Hatton described the pair as “disgraceful”.

“I am glad these individuals have today had to face the consequences of their disgraceful behaviour, I am only sorry their victim is not here to see it,” he said.
