Jay Jenkins, 39, of London Road South, admitted committing the robbery on November 2 when he appeared at Ipswich Crown Court last yesterday (Thursday).

The court heard that Jenkins had continued attacking the 82-year-old victim after knocking him to the ground and then stole a case from him containing his glasses and cash.

Adjourning the case for three weeks for a pre-sentence report, Judge David Goodin described the offence as serious and warned Jenkins that he faced a significant prison sentence.

He remanded him in custody until the sentencing hearing.
