IPSWICH: Knife Robberies - Man Jailed

A man who robbed two shops in Ipswich at Knifepoint has been jailed.

24 year old Clive Malone of St Helen's Street in Ipswich was jailed for three and a half years when he appeared for sentencing at Ipswich Crown Court.

He'd admitted robbing Emeny News in the street where he lived as well as Unishop in Grimwade Street, both on a Sunday in October, and possession of an offensive weapon.

Its after he went into Emeny News at 6.55pm on October 16, threatening the shop keeper at knife point before making off with approximately £250. He went on to rob the Unishop in the same way at 9.05pm, from where he stole a mobile phone, approximately £150 of alcohol, approximately £50 in cash and approximately £300 of tobacco products.

Det Sgt Darren Bruce of Ipswich CID who's team investigated the two robberies, said: "This man, who used a weapon to terrify his victims, is now quite rightly behind bars. While knife crime is relatively low in Suffolk, crimes such as this create fear among local communities and persons convicted of such offences should expect to serve a custodial sentence, such as in this case."
