Great Yarmouth: Women Jailed For Robbery

Two women in their 20s from Great Yarmouth have been jailed for their part in the robbery of a 22-year-old woman in December 2011.

The incident happened around 6am on Saturday 17th December last year. The 22-year-old left a King Street nightclub when she realised she was being followed by a group, including the two offenders, who approached and carried out an unprovoked assault. 

The victim later described to police that she had been knocked to the ground, repeatedly punched around the face and torso and had her hair pulled before the women - now 20 and 22 years old - forcibly pulled her handbag from her. 

The two - Chantelle Cast, 22, of High Street, Gorleston, and Leandra Clayton, 20, of St Nicholas Road, Great Yarmouth - were arrested a few days later and subsequently charged with robbery. Clayton, who had pleaded not guilty to robbery but admitted assault, was found guilty of the robbery and sentenced to two years and nine months while Cast pleaded guilty to robbery and was sentenced to two years. 

Both were sentenced at Norwich Crown Court alongside David Rainey, 23, of Motum Road, West Earlham, formerly of Great Yarmouth, who pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods following the incident and was given nine months imprisonment, minus 123 days spent on remand.
