A 20-year-old woman was locked up for five months after she had pushed an older man without legs out of his wheelchair and stole his two bags.
Irene Mamarika, 20, pleaded guilty before the Supreme Court for robbing the & # 39; vulnerable & # 39; homeless man outside Woolworths in Darwin's CBD on October 11, 2018.
Mamarika stole $ 80, two sports drinks, a pack of tobacco and some food, on top of the alcoholic drinks from the barrel, NT News reported.

The 20-year-old and another woman saw the man on his way to enjoy a few wines & somewhere quiet & # 39 ;.
A & # 39; struggle & # 39; and the man received wounds and scrapes in his arms after he fell out of his wheelchair.
The two women fled the scene with their stolen goods and started drinking from the bastards in front of apartments at the Tomaris court.
The fight was reported to the police who found Mamarika at the units through camera images. She then gave in to the events.
A victim impact statement was read in court by Judge Michael Grant.
The victim's statement showed that he & # 39; hurt a lot & # 39; had after the attack and is worried that something like that could happen to him again.

& # 39; He is trying to stay in well-lit places, making sure he is not in a position where the same could happen & # 39 ;, said Chief Justice Grant.
Chief Justice Grant said that Mamarika, who had been drinking and smoking for 16 years, during the theft & # 39; half shot & # 39; used to be.
After spending five months behind bars, Mamarika was released in residential rehabilitation.
& # 39; Your successful rehabilitation almost certainly depends on some treatment and support in that regard and away from the chaotic lifestyle that you previously led in Darwin, & # 39; said Chief Justice Grant.
Mamarika received a 12-month prison sentence.
& # 39; Robbing an elderly, vulnerable, and handicapped man while pushing his wheelchair out of his wheelchair was not to apologize, & # 39; said Chief Justice Grant.
Chief Justice Grant said the robbery & # 39; relatively little violence & # 39; was because it was not a weapon and was relatively short.
