Designated investigator Hannah Mitchell, of the Priority Crime Team based at Aylesbury police station, said:

“This was a violent attack on an elderly man, and as a result, he suffered some serious injuries.

“A small amount of cash was stolen in the robbery, along with some personal effects, and this crime has had a significant impact on the victim and his family.

“I am pleased that Adelin and Cristi Neculai pleaded guilty to the offence, which has meant that the victim does not have to go through the ordeal of giving evidence in court.

“Thames Valley Police will never tolerate such criminal activity and will work hard to bring offenders to justice.

“Adelin and Cristi Neculai will now serve a lengthy spell in prison to reflect on their actions.”
