police in canto Said that Gabor was ridden by the woman that evening on her bike and snatched her handbag, causing her to fall on the pavement. A nearby surveillance camera captured the incident on video.

Investigator Emma Lambir said: “Gabor targeted a man he believed to be vulnerable and then violently stole his handbag, leaving the victim shocked.” “He showed no concern for his victim, who suffered hip and leg injuries. The effects of this heinous crime will live on for a long time and it is true that Gabor has been jailed.”

Once he had the victim’s purse, police said Gabor went to a nearby store and bought alcohol and cigarettes with her bank card.

Investigators shared details of the suspect’s bike, which officers found on the banks of the River Thames the next day. A day after that, he was found and arrested – still in possession of the victim’s phone, police said.
