A violent thug has been jailed after she threw a woman with learning difficulties to the ground and stole her cash in an “unprovoked attack” at an ATM in north London.
Tracey Robinson, 46, mugged her 30-year-old victim at a cash point in Seven Sisters Road on January 23 this year.
The victim, a woman with learning difficulties, had just withdrawn money from the ATM when she was wrestled to the ground by Robinson, Blackfriars Crown Court heard.
Her attacker snatched the money from her hand and left her lying on the pavement.
The victim suffered minor injuries and was badly shaken up after being grappled with, police said.
Robinson, of no fixed address, was jailed for 16 months on Thursday, March 2, after pleading guilty to one count of robbery.
DC Marcus Johnson of Islington CID said: “This was an unprovoked attack on a vulnerable female for no other reason than financial gain.
“Had it not been for the early guilty plea the victim would have had to attend court and recount her traumatic ordeal.”
