Knife muggers jailed

TWO robbers who forced their victim to hand over his phone and wallet at knifepoint have been jailed.

Craig Monkman, from Rotherham, was sentenced to six years for the December 6 attack in Doncaster.

Monkman (25) and co-defendant Dean Hood (25), from Barnsley, who had been living in Highfield Road, Doncaster, before their arrest, approached a 27-year-old man on Thorne Road.

They led him to a cash point and forced him to give his PIN number. The men were arrested at the scene and charged with robbery.

They were found guilty at Doncaster Crown Court on December 15 and each sentenced to six years.

Pc Lee Walker, from Doncaster’s Performance Crime Team, said: “I’m really pleased with the sentences given by the courts. I hope this sends a clear message out that this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated in Doncaster.

“This was an excellent effort by everybody involved which led to the quick arrest and investigation of the incident.”
