Two men have been jailed for a robbery in Great Yarmouth.
Patryk Blocian, aged 19 and of Lattens Square in Lowestoft was sentenced to three years in prison at Great Yarmouth Magistrates Court on Wednesday 15 May 2019.
His co-defendant, Sam Morrison aged 20 and of no fixed address, was jailed for three years at an earlier hearing on Friday 15 February 2019. However details could not be released until now due to legal proceedings.
Both men pleaded guilty to robbing two 15-year-old boys on East Road, near to St Nicholas Church, in Great Yarmouth at around 4.30am on Tuesday 1 January 2019.
The court heard how Blocian grabbed the boys by the jacket and demanded they hand over all their belongings before punching and kicking them both. Morrison searched one of the victims’ rucksack and Blocian continued to threatened the boys in order for them to unlock and reset their mobile phones and iPads.
Both boys suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident but they did not require medical treatment.
DC Mark Carrier said: “These sentences reflect the seriousness of the offences and the local community can be reassured that we will fully investigate incidents of this nature and seek to prosecute those breaking the law.”
