A man`s been jailed for 12 months after robbing a boy in Peterborough.
The 16-year-old was targetted as he rode his bike along Princes Gate last July.
19 year old Aigars Maslakovics from Crown Street was recognised by his victim on Facebook.
In interview, Maslakovics admitted being involved but claimed he and the two others had stopped the boy as they thought the victim’s bike was stolen.
He also admitted being involved in taking the victim s bike, but denied being involved in any assault.
Maslakovics was charged with robbery and found guilty on January 12 after a two-day trial at Peterborough Crown Court.
Yesterday (Tuesday, February 2) he appeared at Cambridge Crown Court and was sentenced to one year in prison.
DC Kevin Poole told Connect FM: “This was a truly horrific experience for the victim who suffered an unprovoked attack.
“We will not tolerate behaviour of this kind in our city and the sentence passed today shows these crimes will not be taken lightly.”
