A 26-year-old man has been jailed for seven years and eight months after robbing two women within minutes of each other.

Trevor Slater-Owens, of Tithe Barn Court, Newark, knocked a 54-year-old woman to the floor and punched and kicked her to the head and upper body before taking her rucksack in Strawberry Hall Lane, Newark, just after 5.30am on Tuesday 19 March.

Another woman tried to intervene and was also assaulted.

At around that time he also grabbed a 31-year-old from behind in a headlock and tried to pull her to the ground on playing field behind Yorke Drive. She initially broke free and ran off but he caught up and forced her to lie on the floor face down while he took her mobile phone and some coins from her purse.

Owens was sentenced to seven years and eight months, with an extended licence of three years, when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday (24 May) after pleading guilty to two offences of robbery and one offence of assault with intent to rob.

Detective Sergeant Ricky Ellis, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the women involved as it happened in the morning completely out of the blue as they made their way to work.

“The sentence is a reflection of the seriousness of the offences and hopefully will give his victims some reassurance.”
