A Harold Hill man caught robbing a 70-year-old at his local ATM is to be sentenced after admitting five charges in court.

Joseph Oluwasanni, of Lucerne Way, was seen pushing the pensioner out of the way and taking £200 in cash from the machine on May 5.

This was one of five robberies - each with a separate victim - committed by the 18-year-old at the TSB ATM on Hilldene Avenue.

The offences spanned 12 days between April 24 and May 5.

On each occasion, Oluwasanni approached the person using the machine and either distracted or pushed them to steal cash.

The victims were aged between 40 and 83, and the teenager stole £200 from each person.
