Drug addict Umar Hussain, 26, jailed after threatening to stab man with cut-throat razor



A DRUG addict who threatened a man with a cut-throat razor as he robbed him of just 90p has been jailed for four years.

Umar Hussain, 26, warned he would stab his victim as he was walking to work in Bradford on January 7.

Bradford Crown Court heard that around a week earlier, on December 29 last year, Hussain had also stolen £15 from a 78-year-old dementia sufferer in what the Recorder of Bradford, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC, labelled a “despicable” theft.

Prosecutor Jessica Randell told the court that Hussain had been living in a hostel in Bradford when he went into the pensioner’s room and asked for money.


Despite the man’s refusal, Hussain took £15 from his wallet which he later told police he used to buy drugs as he “needed his fix”.

On January 7, Hussain was at the junction of North Avenue and Parkfield Road in Bradford when he shouted at his 21-year-old victim and flashed an ID card from Hull Prison.

He demanded money from the man, saying: “I’m not going to mess around.

“I’ve just got out of prison, I’m on the run.”
