A PALMA court has sentenced a mugger to a two-year suspended sentence for targeting an 84-year old man in Inca last September.
The mugger attacked the pensioner in the middle of the day, just after the victim came out of a local restaurant.
He reportedly grabbed the 84-year old and snatched €200 he had tucked into his shirt pocket.
The attacker then kicked away the elderly man’s walking stick and pushed him down onto the ground, leaving the victim with several injuries.
It was also reported the defendant has an extensive criminal record and had been on drugs at the time.
Law enforcement arrested him eight months after the mugging: he was intercepted during a traffic control.
As well as the prison sentence, suspended for five years, the court ordered he must pay a €437 fine for the injuries he caused the victim during the robbery and a further €200 for the money he stole.
In addition, he must do six months of community service.
