Precious Enoch, 34, of Strangers Way, was sentenced at Luton Crown Court on Thursday, July 5.

He was arrested in October 2017 after he approached a woman in Luton town centre and grabbed her handbag with such force she hit her head against a wall and fell to the ground.

Enoch was then restrained by the security team until arrival of police officers.

Detective Constable Jason Wheeler said: “This was a violent and nasty attack.

“We will not tolerate this kind of crime in our county and we are pleased that Enoch has been jailed and will no longer pose risk to the public.

“Hopefully the two year sentence will allow him to reflect on his actions and prevent any future re-offending.”

Enoch was also ordered to pay £140 victim’s surcharge.
