Woman jailed for brutal attack on pensioner

PRISON: Brenda Collins violently attacked a pensioner

A WOMAN has been sentenced to nine years in prison for robbing and violently attacking a 77-year-old woman in her home.

Brenda Collins, 42, entered her victim's home, whose front door had been left open due to the hot weather, posing as her new carer.

Once inside, Collins began to look around the property before subjecting her vulnerable victim to a "cruel" and violent attack.

During the August 23 incident, she punched her victim before throwing a kettle, filled with hot water, over her.

The 77-year-old's screams were heard by a passerby, who managed to chase and detain Collins until the police arrived.

Collins was arrested and later charged for burglary and grievous bodily harm.

PC Steven Colclough, said: "This was a particularly cruel burglary and violent assault on an elderly lady in her own home. The victim has shown great courage during and following the attack."

"The sentence given to Brenda Collins, demonstrates the seriousness of the offence and the risk she posed to vulnerable and elderly people in Camden. I'm delighted that a just punishment has been delivered," he added.
