Alex Legge was assaulted by Ryan Campbell (29) and robbed of £70 in cash on March 9.

Campbell was sentenced to two years in prison at Elgin Sheriff Court recently and Mr Legge's wife Moira, who runs the shop with her husband, said: "We are both of the idea that we hope the man will be supported to mend his ways.

"We heard that he is involved in a programme through the courts and is responding well to that."
