A 17-year-old boy has been sentenced to two years in detention and will have to complete a training order after pleading guilty to seven robberies – including one in Arnold.
The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, stole items including money and a PlayStation from a number of victims in Arnold and Nottingham city centre.
The seven incidents happened in March 2019 and August 2019, in which all the teenager approach the victim and threatened them with violence.
A man had a rucksack including a PlayStation stolen whilst on a bus, whilst a phone was stolen from a man on King Street in Nottingham in August 2019 after the boy asked the victim to use it to make a call.
The teenage boy was convicted following officers trawling through CCTV footage within Victoria Centre and from inside the bus.
Detective Constable Ryan Atkin who lead the investigation said: “We are happy with the result and we hope that the victims are given some sort of closure as these incidents aren’t very pleasant.
“We hope the teenager can reflect on his actions and hopefully turn his life around after the time in detention.”
None of the victims suffered any injuries in any of the incidents.
The boy was sentenced on 6 April 2020 at Nottingham Crown Court.
