This shocking footage shows the moment a female thug assaulted and robbed an 89-year-old woman while she was waiting for the bus.

Kirsty Moxon, 31, hit her victim over the back of the head in a targeted attack before ripping away her handbag and fleeing the scene.

The unnamed pensioner fell to the ground, smashed her head on the concrete and broke her arm which required a ‘prolonged period of recovery’.

The shocking footage, taken at around 1.30pm on Nov 17 last year, captured the 89-year-old woman waiting for a bus in the Wingfield area of Rotherham, South Yorks.

Moxon can be seen scanning the street, before making a sudden grab for the woman’s handbag.

Cash totalling £300 was stolen as well as the woman’s car keys and bank cards.

After officers were dispatched to the scene, Moxon was quickly identified and arrested by detectives just hours later.

She was charged with robbery the following day.

Moxon, of Whitegate Walk, Rotherham, admitted robbery at an earlier hearing and was jailed for two and a half years at Sheffield Crown Court last Thursday (January 14).

PC Jack Mitchell, investigating said: ‘This was a particularly shocking incident which saw a vulnerable woman targeted and attacked.

‘Although we were very quickly able to apprehend Moxon, the attack left the woman requiring a prolonged period of recovery, taking away her independence.

‘Although upsetting, the robbery provoked a tremendous response from the local community who set up a fundraiser to reimburse the woman for the money Moxon had stolen.

South Yorkshire Police used the CCTV images to track Moxon down and had arrested her within hours of the attack occurring. She was charged with robbery which she later admitted

‘I want to wholeheartedly thank everyone involved in this, for their positive response and support they have provided to both us and the victim.

‘I am glad we were able to put Moxon before the courts and secure a custodial sentence.

‘Our job is to protect the most vulnerable people in our society, and I do hope the local community is reassured by the fast and positive action taken by us in this case.’
