Man jailed for robbery in Edmonton
A man has been jailed for two and a half years for a robbery in Edmonton.
Mohamed Hashim of Cyprus Road, Edmonton, was sentenced at Wood Green Crown Court on Wednesday.
The court heard how the 19-year-old approached his victim, who had left the White Horse Pub, in Fore Street, Edmonton, at about 1:30am on September 1.
He approached the man and put his hands in his pockets saying "empty your pockets” at which point he pushed Hashim away.
He then picked up a traffic cone and hit the victim in the right side of the head causing him to fall to the floor.
He then punched the man repeatedly in the face and ran off with his phone.
From the attack, the vicitm got a bloody nose and was taken to North Middlesex Hospital where he was treated for head injuries and a bruised right eye.
Police caught up with Hashim after he was seen on CCTV showing off the phone to other people in Bedevere Road, a mile away from the incident.
With help from the CCTV operator, officers were able to track him down and arrest him.
