A UK teenager has been sentenced to two years in a young offenders institution for killing an 82-year-old Army veteran with a single punch, according to the New York Post. The incident occurred in May 2021 when 16-year-old Omar Moumeche attacked Dennis Clarke at Derby bus station. Clarke had noticed Moumeche and his friends misbehaving on an escalator and confronted them before leaving the supermarket. However, he was followed to the bus station where he was violently assaulted by Moumeche. The former soldier, who had served in Singapore, was pushed and then punched to the ground. Moumeche fled the scene but was apprehended shortly after. The punch caused Clarke to fall, resulting in a fractured skull and a brain bleed. He passed away in the hospital nine days later. Derbyshire Police released footage of the attack, showing Clarke surrounded by the group of teenagers he had scolded earlier. Detective Inspector Mark Shaw, who led the investigation, stated that the CCTV footage and witness accounts played a crucial role in the trial. Moumeche claimed self-defense, but the jury rejected his version of events. Shaw emphasized the devastating impact of the incident on both Clarke’s family and Moumeche himself and expressed hope that the case would highlight the importance of avoiding violence. Two other teenage boys who were arrested in connection with the same incident will face no further action.
