Dylan Henderson (22/09/2000) of Lever Street, Tyldesley admitted to an attempted robbery committed on Wednesday 15 June 2022.
Yesterday (Wednesday 23 November 2022), the 22-year-old was sentenced to 12 months in prison.
The attempted robbery occurred on Astley Street in Tyldesley at around 6:45am as the victim was making her way to work. The incident was captured in full on CCTV, showing Henderson approaching the victim from behind and grabbing her bag, pulling her violently to the floor.
Henderson fled the scene empty handed and following investigative work by Greater Manchester Police Neighbourhood Team in Wigan, he was soon arrested and charged for the offence.
Sergeant Bodley of Greater Manchester Police Neighbourhood Team in Wigan said: "I am pleased with the sentencing today which has placed a violent offender behind bars.
"The incident was captured in full on CCTV and shows Henderson attempting to grab the victim's bag. The force he used pulled her into the road and it is only by chance that no cars were passing.
"Thankfully the victim was not seriously injured but clearly it could have been much worse.
"I am glad the courts recognised the seriousness of the offence and the threat this individual poses to the public when they handed down a prison sentence today."
