24 Years For Teens After Robbery And Stabbing

9th October 2018
News, Mansfield

An 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy have been sentenced following three violent incidents in Mansfield.

Braydon Forbes (pictured), 18, formerly of Westfield Lan in Mansfield and the youth, who can't be identified for legal reasons, appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on Wednesday 3 October 2018 having been found guilty of grievous bodily harm, two counts of possession of a bladed article, attempted robbery and robbery following an 11 day trial in July.

The court heard how on 12 January, the pair tried to rob a man of his mobile phone in Westgate, but ran off after being disturbed by a passing police car.

Then on 14 January, they assaulted and threatened a man in Harrop White Road, getting away with a mobile phone, wallet, bag and trainers.

On 20 January, they stabbed a man as he walked down an alleyway near to Tuckers Lane causing serious him injuries.

On 3 October, they were each sentenced to 12 years in custody.

Detective Constable Jane Olsen of Nottinghamshire Police said: "These two are nasty young individuals who thought they could go about the streets of Mansfield threatening and assaulting anyone they wanted to. We're pleased they're both now behind bars and serving a lengthy sentence. This violent behaviour will not be tolerated in Nottinghamshire."
