Jail for Nottingham man who punched woman and forced his way into two homes

A drunk man who barged into a woman’s home before punching her and stealing her mobile phone has been jailed.

Kyrie Michael was clutching a bottle of vodka as he approached the woman on her doorstep on Boxing Day last year.

The 26-year-old asked the woman if she had dogs to which she answered ‘no’.

He then pushed her inside the house and began looking around the property. The woman managed to get back outside and rang 999 using her mobile phone.

Moments later, Michael snatched the phone and punched her in the face before running away from the scene, off Hucknall Road in Carrington.

He then stormed into another property a few streets away and began searching through cupboards, before leaving with a tube of Pringles.

Again, the homeowner called police and Michael was arrested a short time later after officers tracked him down in a local park.

Michael, of Perlethorpe Avenue, Sneinton, appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on 11 November and pleaded guilty to robbery, attempted robbery and theft.

He was jailed for two years and three months.

Detective Sergeant Nigel Malik, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “These were very distressing incidents for two women who were at home enjoying a relaxing Boxing Day.

“I am pleased that the severity of his actions have been recognised by the courts and that he has received a significant prison sentence.

“Nottinghamshire Police treats all reports of robbery extremely seriously and will always seek to get victims the justice they deserve.”
