Violent robber jailed after Nottingham assault

A violent robber who punched a man in the face and inflicted a knife wound on him during a street attack has been sent to prison.

Shaun Cartledge grabbed the victim by the neck and took out a knife from his waistband during the incident which happened in Noel Street, Radford.

The 31-year-old then punched the man in the face, forcibly rifled through his pockets and took his tobacco and tobacco filters.

Cartledge then suddenly moved his hand holding the knife. The victim raised his hands to protect his face and felt something sharp on his right arm. He sustained a cut to his forearm.

The 25-year-old victim waved at a passing vehicle to try and get it to stop.

Cartledge then walked off before the victim ran away from him.

Police were then alerted to the incident which happened around 5.05 am on 19 February 2022.

Cartledge, of Nottingham, was arrested nearby a short time later and was subsequently charged.

He was jailed for five-and-a-half years at Nottingham Crown Court on Wednesday (25 January 2023) after being found guilty of robbery and possession of a bladed article in a public place following a three-day trial.

Detective Constable Gavin Harper, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Cartledge is a violent offender who posed a danger to the public, so I am pleased he has now been removed from the streets.

“This was a frightening ordeal for the victim. No one should have to fear being assaulted and robbed and I hope now Cartledge has been locked up it brings him some comfort and closure.

“I also hope our work, in this case, shows our determination to bring violent criminals to account. Violence in our communities will not be tolerated and will always be met with a very robust police response.”
