Man gets 10 years for 'vicious and sustained' attack on pensioner in his Bradford home


A 75-year-old widower spent 10 days in a high dependency unit in hospital after being viciously attacked in his Bradford home.

Victim James Glen, who lived alone in Holme Wood following the death of his wife, was tricked into opening his front door in the middle of the night and then punched and kicked by 30-year-old Robert Braithwaite.

Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday that there had been an “issue” between the two men, but Braithwaite’s barrister Ken Green conceded it did not justify the “severe and vicious” assault


Mr Glen suffered three fractured ribs, internal bleeding to the chest and a bleed on the brain in the attack which took place in June.

Braithwaite and his accomplice, 36-year-old Benjamin Sanderson, left the scene following the early hours attack and it was eight hours later when the injured Mr Glen was seen by a neighbour and the emergency services were contacted.

Yesterday Braithwaite, of Heath Hall Avenue, Bierley, Bradford, was jailed for 10 years after he pleaded guilty on the day of his trial to causing Mr Glen grievous bodily harm with intent.

He was sentenced to an extra one month in jail for five shoplifting offences committed a few weeks before the attack.
