Milton Keynes man jailed after pleading guilty to committing two knifepoint robberies on the same night
The 32-year-old was sentenced at Luton Crown Court on Friday March 26.
Dylan Aimable-Brown, of Lavender Hill, Milton Keynes, was sentenced on Friday for robbery, attempted robbery and two counts of possession of a bladed article.
He faces four years in jail after committing these two distressing attacks that left his victims, shaken in fear, thinking they were going to be stabbed.
Just after midnight on 6 February, Aimable-Brown approached a man on Dallow Road, Luton, near the junction with Ashburnham Road, and threatened him with a knife, demanding he hand over the contents of his pockets.
As the victim handed over a debit card, Aimable-Brown fled the scene.
One hour later, at the taxi rank by Luton train station, Aimable-Brown again produced the knife and threatened a second man, forcing him towards the cashpoint. A station worker came outside and Aimable-Brown fled the scene empty handed.
Aimable-Brown was tracked on CCTV and arrested a short while later.
Detective Constable Oliver Fitton, from Bedfordshire Police, said: “Both victims have spoken of the fear they experienced when being threatened by Aimable-Brown at knifepoint.
“They both thought they would be stabbed, and have understandably suffered emotional distress as a result.
“We will never tolerate knife crime on our streets, and seeing Aimable-Brown locked up will hopefully help both victims recover from their ordeal.”
Aimable-Brown was sentenced to four years for robbery, four years for attempted robbery, and a year each for two counts of possession of a bladed article, all to run concurrently.
