A 27-year-old man has today (Wednesday, June 20) been sentenced to six years in prison for a robbery which took place in Melbourne Street, Derby in 2016.
Martin Lovatt, of London Road, Derby pleaded guilty at Derby Crown Court this morning.
The robbery took place on 15 August 2016, when Lovatt stole a large quantity of cash from a 53-year-old man.
Detective Constable, Tarj Nizzer said: “I am pleased with today’s sentence which reflects the fact that this robbery was a cowardly act against a vulnerable victim.
“I am hopeful that the length of sentence will send out a message that robbery will not be tolerated in the communities of Derbyshire.”
