A serial thief with over 70 convictions stalked a blind man in a wheelchair home from the pub and robbed him of £6 inside his own property.

Angela Burns, 53, was sentenced to prison this week for the heartless attack on the 86-year-old OAP who she pushed to the floor as she forced entry in his home.The nan, who previously carried out a similar spineless theft five years ago, has already spent 15 years in and out of jail for preying on vulnerable elderly people, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The then 47-year-old criminal had attacked a 72-year-old registered blind man in the late afternoon of January 4, 2017, after he had been drinking in the North Star pub on Laird Street in Birkenhead.When he returned home he heard a knock on his kitchen window and went to his front door where he recognised the voice of ''Angie from the pub'' that he was a regular at.

She offered to sell him a jacket then forced her way into the home and pushed the elderly man onto a sofa bed and pinned him down.Burns then stole £160 in cash from the OAP's wallet and was later jailed for three years and eight months after she admitted to her crime.
