A Stepney teenager who robbed two 16-year-olds of their bikes has been sentenced to two and a half years in a young offenders’ institute.
Jayden Roper, 19, of Coltman Street, was handed the term last Friday after being found guilty of two counts of robbery after a four-day trial.
Snaresbrook Crown Court heard how on June 18 Roper threatened two 16-year-old boys before pushing one off his bike and stealing both vehicles with the help of another male.
Roper, who had a previous conviction for robbery, was quickly identified an arrested three days later. He was subsequently charged.
The second suspect remains at large.
