A teenager who threatened a man at knifepoint during a “terrifying” robbery has been sentenced to three years in a young offender institution.
Deureece Reid, of Hoe Lane, Enfield, held a knife to the throat of his 33-year-old victim as he walked through Bush Hill Park, Queen Anne’s Place, on December 12.
He forced the man to withdraw £250 from a cash point but was arrested on the same day.
At Wood Green Crown Court on June 26, Reid was sentenced after earlier being found guilty of robbery at the end of a two-day trial.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Rob Delaney, said: “This was a terrifying attack, causing the victim to fear for his life. This sentence will take this attacker off of our streets for a number of years.”
