A 31-YEAR-OLD man has admitted the broad daylight robbery of a young girl’s purse as she went to buy sweets.
Nasser Laher, of Warwick Road, Batley Carr, pleaded guilty to robbing eight-year-old Chelsea Dixon when he appeared before a judge at Bradford Crown Court yesterday.
The youngster was in the Mill Road area of Batley Carr on the afternoon of March 15 when she was approached by Laher.
After grabbing her hand he took the purse which contained £3.50 and had belonged to the victim’s late grandmother.
Judge John Potter remanded Laher in custody so that a pre-sentence report could be prepared, but he warned him to expect a significant custodial sentence when his case is dealt with at Leeds Crown Court on July 30.
