A drug addict has been jailed after a court heard how he mugged a girl of just eight years of age in West Yorkshire so he could steal 3.50 pounds to feed his addiction.

Police expressed disbelief that Naseer Laher, 31, could rob someone so young and as he was jailed for four years and three months on Tuesday, a judge told him: “It doesn’t get much lower than that.”

Leeds Crown Court heard Laher preyed on Chelsea Dixon in an alleyway as she walked to the post office to buy sweets and post letters to her brother Lewis, who was serving in Afghanistan.

Chelsea had just 3.50 pounds in a purse which had belonged to her beloved grandmother, who had died four weeks before the incident on March 15 this year.
