Three jailed for robbing man at Fishermead ATM

    Three people - including two from Milton Keynes - have been jailed after being robbing a man of his rent as he left a cashpoint machine.

    Stefan Karlington, 23, and Louisa Thompson, 36, both of Melick Road, Beanhill, Milton Keynes, and Roy Munday, 49, of no fixed abode, were sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on Monday (October 10).

    Munday was sentenced to four years and six months' imprisonment. He was found guilty of one count of robbery by unanimous jury at the same court on September 16 following a trial.

    Karlington was given three years and four months' imprisonment, while Thompson was given two years and six months' imprisonment after they both pleaded guilty to one count of robbery on September 1.

    At around 7am on April 1, the offenders had been watching a 24-year-old man withdrawing money from a cash machine at the Co-operative store in Fishermead.

    Thompson then informed Munday and Karlington how much cash the man had withdrawn. The pair then followed the victim, then threw him to the ground, punched and kicked him, and stole cash and his mobile phone.

    Munday was arrested on April 2 and charged the next day. Karlington and Thompson were arrested on April 11 and charged the same day.

    Investigating officer, Det Con Shannon Smith, said: "This was an unprovoked and violent attack on the victim purely because he had been seen to withdraw money for his rent. Thankfully, the victim received no injuries as a result of this incident.

    "This type of violent crime will not be tolerated within the Thames Valley area and the sentences which were issued reflect this."
