Two men have been sentenced to over eight years in custody for a Stevenage robbery.

Jamie Kean, 19, of no fixed abode and Jamie Costandi, 21, of Broadwater Crescent, Stevenage were sentenced at Cambridge Crown Court on Monday (December 9).

The robbery took place on Monday September 9 at around 1.15am when two men had been walking in Shephalbury Park.

They were approached by a group of two men and two women, one of whom asked the men for a cigarette.

When they declined both victims walked off before the two men from the group chased them.

One of the men – who is registered disabled - fell to the ground before being punched and kicked by Jamie Kean and Jamie Costandi.

When the other victim tried to assist he had a knife held to his throat.
