    Two men who targeted lone women in robberies in Bradford have been jailed for a total of 20 years.

    Lee Naylor and Dean Whittaker were sentenced at Bradford Crown Court on Wednesday 14 March for the offences, which occurred in September and October last year. 

    Naylor, 39, of Kingswood Terrace, Bradford was given 14 years after he was found guilty of the violent robbery of a 74-year-old woman in Southfield Lane on 2 October.

    Naylor pushed his victim to the floor as she walked along the road. He then kicked and stamped on her as she attempted to hold on to the bag.

    He was also sentenced for a similar offence in Palm Close on 21 September last year where a 47-year-old woman was robbed of her handbag following a struggle.

    Whittaker, 27, of Cobden Street, Allerton received a six-year term for assisting Naylor in the latter offence.
