The man convicted of a number of attacks on the elderly in Northeast Philadelphia has been sentenced to prison.

Christopher Russell, 35, was sentenced to 63 to 126 years in prison on Monday.

He was convicted in June of a series of violent robberies and home invasions between 2008 and 2009.

The majority of his victims were women in the 70s and 80s.

Police say Russell attacked the women as they walked home from grocery stores.
