A violent mugger who targeted pensioners to fund his crack and heroin habit has absconded from a Kent prison.
Sabul Miah is serving two life sentences after a string of attacks on elderly people, including 79-year-old George Rowe, who he stabbed in the neck.
Kent Police said the 39-year-old absconded from Standford Hill Prison on the Isle of Sheppey on Thursday afternoon and should not be approached.
In May Michael Wheatley, who was nicknamed 'Skullcracker’, also absconded from the same prison while serving 13 life sentences.
A Ministry of Justice spokesman said: "We have made major changes to tighten up temporary release processes and open prison eligibility.
“Absconds have reached record lows."
