A man who bashed and choked an 84-year-old grandmother had a history of targeting elderly nursing home residents and stealing their jewelry.
Peter Bui’s string of violent robberies started in November last year when he broke into Orange’s Ascott Gardens Nursing Home in the NSW central west and stole cash.
When confronted by a nurse, the disgusting 44-year-old threw a bag containing used incontinence pads at her.

Two weeks later Bui broke into grandmother Patricia Maton’s home at Huon Park Retirement Village in Turramurra and stole jewelry, The Daily Telegraph reports.
Ms Maton had just returned home from a doctor’s appointment when she caught Bui red-handed.
When she asked what Bui was doing, he punched her to the floor and choked her until she briefly lost consciousness.
Bui eventually fled and Ms Maton managed to crawl to a phone to call her daughter to summon paramedics to rescue her.
She was rushed to hospital and had surgery to fix a deep gash on the inside of her mouth.
Ms Maton now suffers from symptoms of anxiety and depression as a result of the savage attack.
The following month police called Bui’s family member, prompting her to ask Bui if he was in trouble.
Bui told his relative: ‘Nothing, but if they ask you anything, tell them I was with you on those dates’.
He was later arrested at a service station in Wahroonga on Sydney’s Upper North Shore.
Court documents show he had also stolen jewelry from a unit in Narrabeen and was wearing a stolen watch while he was arrested.
He was charged with grievous bodily harm and will be sentenced in February.
