The incident happened at around 11:15 pm on 17 November 2018 on Rectory Road in Colwick, where Deville followed an 18-year-old man from the city centre, onto a bus and to Colwick.

The victim left the bus, followed by Deville, along a dark street with no CCTV. After noticing that he was being followed, the victim turned around and was immediately threatened by Deville, demanding that he hand over his belongings.

When the victim refused, Deville punched him repeatedly to the face and ripped his chain from around his neck. The victim’s mobile phone and bag were also taken.

The victim received facial and dental injuries and had to spend time at Queen’s Medical Centre for ongoing treatment.

Detective Constable Richard Kinsey said: “This was an unprovoked and pre-planned attack, on an innocent man by a violent individual. We are pleased with today’s result. This incident has left a lasting impact on the victim’s life and we hope this result gives him comfort, with Deville safely locked up and off the streets.”
