A violent thief, jailed for ripping jewellery from the neck of a woman in a wheelchair, is back behind bars for violently robbing a deaf man he had known since childhood.
Sean Dickson, 25, from Worcester Way, in Gorleston, was jailed for six years following a trial at Ipswich Crown Court.
He denied stealing the bank cards of a 50-year-old deaf man in April, after hitting him over the head in an alleyway off London Road South, in Lowestoft, kicking and punching him on the ground, leaving him with a broken nose and eye socket.
Lowestoft detective, Matt Adams said: “The victim had known Sean Dickson since a child, so to suddenly turn on this vulnerable individual in such an aggressive and violent manner, causing such injuries, is particularly despicable.”
Dickson, who in 2013 was convicted of robbing two necklaces from a woman in a wheelchair, also received a restraining order.
