Two Coventry men jailed for armed robbery

30 year old's Brian Wright and Liam Turbitt from Donegal Close threatened a woman in Kenilworth at knife-point before stealing her car.

The victim, who's in her 30s, had just finished walking her dogs and had returned to her Land Rover which was parked in a lay by when they approached her.

The pair will serve a total of twelve years between them after being arrested at their home in Coventry on the 19th of April, ten day after the incident. 

They were both found guilty of robbery, and Wright was also found guilty of possession of a bladed article in a public space.

Followig the sentencing, Detective Sergeant Collette O'Keefe said: "The severity of the sentence reflects the serious nature of the offence. The offenders used a knife to terrify the victim and the frightening experience will no doubt have a long-lasting impact on her.

"I would like to pay tribute to the bravery of the victim. Her courage has helped lead to the imprisonment of two dangerous offenders.

"We are committed to protecting people from harm and I hope this sentencing sends a clear message to anyone thinking of committing a similar offence. We will do everything in our power to catch you and bring you to justice."
