A TEENAGER who robbed a man at knife point in a Milton Keynes shopping centre has been sent to prison.

Dean Stewart, of Fowler, Stantonbury, was sentenced to 34 months in jail after Amersham Crown Court heard he used threats and physical violence to rob his victims.

The 18-year-old headbutted one 43-year-old victim outside an off-licence Stantonbury on June 18 before threatening him and taking cash.

Officers searched the area and arrested Stewart after recovering the knife used in the offence.

After being charged and remanded into custody, he pleaded guilty to this robbery and a further offence of robbery which he committed in May at Stantonbury Fields Car Park during which he threatened and headbutted a 16-year-old before stealing his mobile phone.

DC Phil Turner-Robson said: “I am delighted that Stewart has been taken off the streets.

“His robberies involved intimidation of the victims who were left shaken and nursing injuries afterwards.

“He gained very little financially from committing these robberies but the length of his sentence reflects the violence and threat of violence he was using.”
