‘Burglar Killed By Pensioner’ Pictured – Was Wanted For Another Raid On OAP

‘Burglar Killed By Pensioner’ Pictured – Was Wanted For Another Raid On OAP

A picture has emerged of the 'burglar' who was fatally stabbed following a break-in at the home of a 78-year-old OAP.

Henry Vincent, 38, died after suffering a stab wound during a suspected raid on retiree Richard Osborn-Brooks' home in Hither Green, south-east London.

And it has emerged that Vincent was already being hunted by cops over another raid on another pensioner.

Mr Osborn-Brooks was arrested on suspicion of murder after allegedly stabbing Vincent during a struggle.

After two days in custody, he has now been bailed pending further enquiries.

After the picture was revealed, it also emerged that Vincent was wanted by Kent Police for a 'distraction burglary'.

It is reported that a man in his 70s alleged that several items were taken, after a woman had gained access to his home by claiming she had been assaulted, before being picked up by a white van back in November last year.

Kent Police reportedly issued a public appeal in January to trace Vincent in connection with the burglary in Farningham.

It is claimed he was previously listed as being wanted in connection with a burglary in Gravesend, Kent, in 2013.

Earlier today LADbible reported how neighbours of the pensioner leapt to his defence, saying he should be 'given a medal' - not a murder charge.

Boxer Tony Bellew has also spoken out, with the three time ABA Heavyweight Champion tweeting his 511k followers slamming the justice system and telling them to give the homeowner a 'round of applause'.

The tweet, which has 32,204 likes, was posted hours before reports emerged that the retiree has been bailed until May pending further enquiries.
