A violent robber who tricked an 84-year-old woman into giving him a lift before shoving her out and taking her car has been jailed for 35 years.
Ross Dawson, 32, of no fixed address, carried out a string of violent robberies including holding cab drivers at knifepoint in two incidents, robbing a woman with the help of a female accomplice as well as aggravated burglary.
In the chilling attack on the 84-year-old woman, Dawson approached the car at her house in Romford, east London, and asked for a lift to hospital.
He claimed his pregnant wife was not feeling well on July 22, 2017, and the pensioner let them in.
But on the way Dawson forced her to stop on a secluded road, pushed her out of the car and sped away from the scene.
The incident was recorded on a passerby's dash-camera.
Dawson also dumped his 15-year-old female accomplice, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and she was arrested and found with a black handled, eight-inch kitchen knife in her handbag.
