JAILED: Attack by pub-goer resulted in 'catastrophic' consequences for elderly victim

A MAN who “kicked out” at an elderly dementia sufferer he argued with in the pub – pushing him down the stairs and breaking his arm – has been jailed.

Gareth Lamb, 44, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm on the pensioner, during an incident at The Roebuck pub in Keighley in January last year.

Lamb, who himself suffers from arthritis and has recently undergone a hip replacement operation, was jailed yesterday for 21 months.


The Recorder of Bradford, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC, said he had no choice but to jail Lamb given the seriousness of his actions, which left the victim having to move into a care home.

He also criticised Lamb, of Hollins Lane, Keighley, for not taking the time to question the elderly man’s behaviour, which was clearly consistent with dementia.


Bradford Crown Court heard that Lamb and the pensioner had been regular visitors to The Roebuck pub and, on the evening of January 7 last year, had both been in the pub.
