A 21-year-old man from Milton Keynes has been jailed for eight years for his part in a robbery and assault which left a man with a fractured ankle.
Levi Colton Cuffy, of Ambridge Grove, Peartree Bridge, was convicted by a jury of GBH and assault and was sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court last Friday.
At about 3.20pm on August 22 last year, a 43-year-old man was walking along the Redway behind Padstow Avenue, Milton Keynes, when he was approached by Cuffy and two other men.
One of the men grabbed his mobile phone and when he tried to resist, they began assaulting him.
Despite dropping his phone, the men continued to attack the victim and his leg was stamped on several times. He suffered a fractured right ankle and had to undergo several operations.
Investigating officer PC Lisa Flitter, of Local CID in Milton Keynes, said: “This was an extremely violent and unprovoked attack on a man who was minding his own business as he walked to meet friends.
“We are extremely pleased with this result and glad that a violent offender has been removed from the streets of Milton Keynes.”
