A man who assaulted an “entirely defenceless” pensioner and left them with a broken leg has been given a suspended prison sentence.
The victim, a 69-year-old woman who walks with a stick, was attacked by Bradey Weight, 24, from Kentish Town, as she got off the 29 bus on May 4.
Weight kicked the victim’s shopping bag before pushing her to the floor. After suffering a broken leg, the pensioner was kept in hospital for seven days.
The attacker appeared at Wood Green Crown Court on Sunday when he was handed a 12-month suspended sentence, ordered to complete 250 hours of unpaid work, and spend 35 days in rehabilitation.
Weight previously pleaded guilty to GBH without intent at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court.
