A HARLOW man who committed two robberies and an assault involving a knife in East Herts, has been jailed for four years.
Danny Williams, aged 23 from Potters Field in Harlow was arrested on September 2, 2016.
On that day, Williams approached two 15 year old boys in Priory Street in Ware.
An argument took place and Williams demanded the two boys hand over their bags.
When the boys refused Williams cut the straps of the bags, which they were wearing across their chests, with a large knife and made off.
Williams was later traced and arrested. He was subsequently charged with two counts of robbery, assault with intent to rob and possession of a bladed article.
He was also charged with breaching the terms of a suspended sentence he was serving at the time.
He appeared at St Albans Crown Court on Friday September 29.
Investigating Officer Shaun Turner said: “I am very pleased with the outcome of this case. This was a very serious incident involving a knife which could have easily had a far worse outcome.”
