The woman, aged 63, was walking her dog on Kineton Road when Hare spotted her.

He launched a vicious attack in order to steal her handbag. She was thrown to the floor and kicked in the face causing her to lose some teeth.

The handbag contained a torch and poo bags for her dog.

Our detectives were able to work out that Hare actually drove past the woman first in a blue Vauxhall Corsa. He turned the car around and pulled over before jumping out and launching the attack

CCTV of the car and footage from a ring doorbell camera helped us to identify Hare as a suspect.

Hare, aged 43, of no fixed address, tried to say that he’d lent the car to a friend in order to trick us into believing he wasn’t responsible – but his story simply didn’t add up.

He was found guilty following a trial at Birmingham Crown Court last Tuesday (16 November) and was jailed for eight years.
