A 37-year-old woman has been sentenced to four years in prison after she attacked and stole from a man in his own home in Mansfield.

Julie Coyle, of Ladybrook Lane in the town, appeared at Nottingham Crown Court today on Friday 1 February 2019 following a trial in December having previously denied robbery.

She was arrested in May after a vulnerable man reported that she had stormed into his house looking for someone and demanding money. She then grabbed him by the throat and pushed him down before taking the TV from the room and running off.

Detective Constable Kelly Holloway said: “We’re glad that Coyle has been forced to answer up to her actions after she completely denied doing anything wrong. She is a violent and manipulative individual who thinks she can get away with treating people in this way. I hope the victim can now put the incident behind him and wish him a full recovery following the ordeal.”
