A frail and elderly widower who was mugged for £5 has pledged to donate hundreds of pounds sent to him by well-wishers to charity, so that “some good can come out of evil”.

Stanley Evans, 92, was attacked outside the entrance to his Soho block of flats and pushed to the ground by homeless Soloman Bygraves, 29, as he lunged for the widower’s wallet.

Recorder Andrew Mitchell jailed Bygraves for 30 months for his “callous and sickening attack” that could “easily have killed Mr Evans”, Southark Crown Court heard.
