Two thugs who carried out a violent robbery and car-jacking on three men in Poplar have been jailed.

Tyler Winmill, 21, of Carmen Street, Poplar, and a 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, threatened their victims with a knife after spotting them sitting in a car on Upper North Street.

The courts heard the three men were dragged out of the car and assaulted before Winmill and the youth drove off in the vehicle with their victims’ possessions on March 31 this year.

The pair were caught in the car the following the day when Winwill failed to stop when he was flagged down by police who had been altered it was stolen.

A pursuit took place and both were arrested.

Both were convicted of robbery and today Winwill was jailed for six-and-a-half years and the boy must serve five-and-a-half years in a youth offenders’ institute.
