Locked up after robbing naked man at knifepoint

A NAKED man was robbed at knifepoint after two women offered to have sex with him for �25 each.

Jessica Butcher and Charlotte Hagan-Knight, both aged 20, went to the victim’s flat in Weston after promising to give him a ‘good time’, but when he stripped to wash he was threatened with the blade, Bristol Crown Court heard this week.

They had previously been given alcoholic drinks and money and it was agreed that an outstanding sum would be paid the following morning.

But when the victim walked into his bedroom, naked, Butcher poked a knife at him and asked for his wallet.

Hagan-Knight also had hold of a blade and rummaged through items of clothing before pointing the weapon at the man, who cannot be identified for legal reasons.

The victim then went into the bathroom and gave the robbers his credit card and an incorrect PIN number. When Butcher, of Birchwood Road and Hagan-Knight, of Upper Church Road, left, the victim called the police.

When officers caught up with them, both knives were recovered, as well as the man’s debit card and his mobile phone.

The pair previously pleaded guilty to robbery and they appeared at Bristol Crown Court this week where each was sentenced to 24 months in youth custody.

Following the case, a spokesman for the Crown Prosecution Service said: “We take all types of crime extremely seriously and will seek to prosecute wherever there is sufficient evidence to do so.

“The victim in this case contacted the police quickly and they were able to apprehend the offenders.

“We have taken measures to ensure the man is not identified in the hope this will encourage victims of similar crimes to come forward.”
