Brendon O’Grady admitted robbery and was jailed for three years.

The court heard O’Grady was arrested hours later after officers spotted a man matching his description walking close to a police station.

O’Grady admitted robbery and was jailed for three years.

Detective Constable Nathan Bingham, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was an unprovoked attack on the victim which not only injured him physically, but no doubt affected him emotionally and left him with a bleed on the brain.

“We welcome the court's sentence and hope his time in prison will give him chance to think about his actions and both the physical and emotional impact the robbery has had on his victim.

“Behaviour like this will not be tolerated and we will always do everything we can to find anyone involved in incidents like this who pose a risk to people’s safety and bring them before the courts to seek justice for victims.”
