Man charged after woman, 100, robbed outside Tottenham home
A man has been charged with robbing a 100-year-old woman outside her home as she returned from a prayer meeting.
Alexteen Roberts was pushed to the ground and punched on Sherboro Road, Tottenham, before her bag containing £300 was taken on 23 August.
Her family said she had since celebrated her 101st birthday but was scared of leaving the house on her own.
Jawad Naser, 37, of Gladesmore Road was remanded in custody when he appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court.
He will next appear at Wood Green Crown Court on 13 October.
