Senior’s attacker sentenced

The man who punched a 91-year-old during a robbery and then returned to the elderly man’s home on two other occasions has been given 23 more months in jail.

The man who punched a 91-year-old during a robbery and then returned to the elderly man’s home on two other occasions has been given 23 more months in jail.

Douglas John Stefan, 48, who pleaded guilty to the robberies earlier this month, was sentenced in Vancouver on Friday. His victim has been identified only as Tom.

Stefan stole $80 from Tom who lived alone during a home invasion in March 2008. To get the money, he punched the elderly man several times in the head.

Stefan returned to Tom’s home twice more over the next month, which made Tom nervous and led him to wear a personal alarm, says CBC News Online.

Taking into account time spent in custody awaiting trial, Stefan — who has a long criminal record with close to 60 convictions — will serve another 23 months of the 42-month sentence handed to him.
