A violent robber who ripped the earrings out of his elderly victim’s ears after tricking his way into her Wembley home has been jailed and banned from entering any private property in London.
Manoj Gorsia, 28, of Beatrice Avenue, Wembley, also yanked a chain off the 75-year-old woman’s neck after he pushed her over inside her house in Charterhouse Avenue.
Harrow Crown Court heard he claimed he carried out his cowardly crime after he gained entry by claiming he working for a gas company in December last year.
He was caught by DNA left on several pieces of paper he left behind after fleeing the scene.
Last week he was jailed for five years and issued with a criminal behaviour order which some into effect after he leave prison.
