Le poignardeur du triangle amoureux

Le 1er février, la petite amie jalouse Raven Parken, 19 ans, a pris d’assaut la fête du 17e anniversaire d’une fille – parce qu’elle croyait que son petit ami avait vu la fille derrière son dos.

Parkin a frappé à la porte à Orton Goldhay, Peterborough, et la mère de la jeune fille l’a ouverte. Parkin a exigé de parler à sa fille, qui est sortie de la maison, cependant, la mère a dit à Parkin qu’elle pouvait parler le lendemain et qu’elle devrait partir.

La mère ne se sentait pas à l’aise avec la présence de Parkin, elle est donc sortie pour dire à sa fille de revenir pour rejoindre la fête. Alors que la mère lui tournait le dos, Parkin l’a poignardée avec un couteau et s’est enfuie.

La victime a été soignée à l’hôpital de Peterborough pour une blessure de 3 cm causée par le couteau.

Plus tard dans la soirée, Parkin a été arrêtée à son domicile à Winyates, Orton Goldhay, Peterborough.

Vendredi 25 octobre, au tribunal de la Couronne de Peterborough, elle a été condamnée à six mois de prison dans un établissement pour jeunes contrevenants, après avoir plaidé coupable d’avoir causé des lésions corporelles graves sans intention.

Mère et fils qui ont gardé les hommes comme esclaves modernes

Cette mère et son fils contrôlaient deux comptes bancaires d’hommes slovaques et ont contracté des prêts et des contrats téléphoniques en leur nom.

Margita Slavikova, 68 ans de Cermen, à Nitra, en Slovaquie, et avec son fils Robert Slavik, 40 ans, de Priory Road, Peterborough, ont admis des accusations de fraude contre les hommes.

Les deux hommes ont été approchés dans les rues de Slovaquie avant d’être amenés au Royaume-Uni pour être exploités et travailler pour très peu de salaire.

Ils ont vécu à différentes adresses à Peterborough pendant près de huit ans – dont un a même été contraint à un mariage factice.

Les deux hommes ont été secourus et ont rejoint le Mécanisme national d’orientation.

Slavik et Slavikova ont admis deux chefs d’accusation de fraude – un chef d’accusation pour chaque victime – en mars de cette année.

Ils ont été condamnés hier (30 septembre) au Cambridge Crown Court, où Slavikova a été condamné à 50 mois d’emprisonnement et Slavik à 40 mois.

Un homme qui a gardé sa petite amie prisonnière en prison

Cet homme qui a gardé sa petite amie prisonnière dans son appartement pendant trois jours a été pris au piège grâce à ses voisins.

Tomasz Grabowski, qui était en couple avec la femme depuis environ un an, l’a maintenue dans son appartement contre son gré entre le 27 mars et le 30 mars 2018.

Il l’a également agressée plusieurs fois.

Son catalogue de violences physiques incluait de la frapper au visage lui causant des yeux noirs, de lui fracasser la tête contre un mur lui faisant perdre temporairement l’audition et lui donnant des côtes douloureuses et des blessures sur tout le corps.

Les voisins de Grabowski ont appelé la police mais lorsque les policiers sont arrivés, il n’était pas sur les lieux et avait quitté son appartement.

Il a été arrêté et lors de l’entretien avec la police, il a affirmé qu’il ne se souvenait pas de ce qui s’était passé car il était «drogué».

Après un procès de trois jours au Cambridge Crown Court, Grabowski a été reconnu coupable de faux emprisonnement et de voies de fait contre une personne qui lui avait causé des lésions corporelles (ABH).

Il a été condamné le même jour, le 14 octobre, où il a été condamné à trois ans de prison.

Il a également reçu une ordonnance de non-communication, l’empêchant de contacter la victime, qui se poursuivra jusqu’à nouvel ordre.

Le juge Stuart Bridge a félicité la voisine qui est intervenue et s’est tenue entre Grabowski et son partenaire, ajoutant qu’elle devrait être recommandée pour une récompense de haut shérif pour sa bravoure.

Prison pour un homme qui a détenu sa petite amie prisonnière dans son appartement

Homme qui a attaqué sa femme et sa fille avec un morceau de verre

Cet homme a blessé sa femme et sa fille avec un morceau de verre lors d’une explosion agressive à leur domicile.

Liam George, 46 ans, est devenu agité et en colère après que sa femme et sa fille de 17 ans soient rentrées chez elles à Wisbech dans la soirée du dimanche 18 août.

Ils se sont retirés dans la chambre de la fille et George a frappé à la porte avant de descendre et de casser la télé et plusieurs cadres.

George a quitté la maison et est revenu environ 15 minutes plus tard pour découvrir qu’il avait été mis en lock-out.

Il a répondu en brisant la fenêtre du salon avec une pelle, faisant éclater le verre, avant de grimper par le trou.

Il a ensuite ramassé un morceau de verre et a menacé de se blesser avant d’agiter ses bras, laissant sa femme et sa fille avec des coupures.

Après avoir réalisé ce qu’il avait fait, il est sorti, a pris la voiture de sa femme et est parti en voiture, malgré son interdiction de conduire et sans assurance.

Lorsqu’il est rentré chez lui, la police était arrivée et il est devenu violent lors de son arrestation.

En entrevue, George, de l’avenue Kooreman, à Wisbech, a admis avoir ramassé le morceau de verre et endommagé sa maison.

Le 17 septembre, il a plaidé coupable à des lésions corporelles graves sans intention, à des dommages-intérêts criminels, à une obstruction à un officier de police, à la prise d’un véhicule sans le consentement du propriétaire, à la conduite avec disqualification et à la conduite sans assurance.

Il a été condamné à Peterborough Crown Court le 8 octobre à 19 mois d’emprisonnement.

DC Paddy Reeve, qui a enquêté, a déclaré: «Ce fut une explosion violente en présence de sa fille adolescente qui devait être terrifiée.

«Ce type de comportement agressif est totalement inacceptable et j’espère que la condamnation d’aujourd’hui clôturera les victimes.»

L’ami d’un couple de personnes âgées a volé toutes ses économies

Cette femme a volé plus de 10 000 £ à un couple de personnes âgées vulnérables avant de dépenser de l’argent pour des cartes à gratter et des bons de jeu.

Deborah Green, de Deerfield Road, en mars, s’est liée d’amitié avec le couple qui avait 70 ans en 2017, car elle vivait à proximité.

L’homme de 56 ans a commencé à faire du jardinage pour le couple, qui étaient tous deux vulnérables en raison de leur mobilité et de leur mauvaise santé. Ils étaient également assez isolés et vivaient dans un village différent de leur famille.

Lors d’un entretien avec la police, Green a nié avoir volé de l’argent au couple et a affirmé qu’ils mentaient, accusant même l’un d’eux de garder l’argent de l’autre, qu’elle avait retiré.

Cependant, elle a fini par admettre deux chefs de fraude pour fausse représentation et a été condamnée à Peterborough Crown Court le 24 octobre, où elle a été condamnée à un total de deux ans de prison.

Elle a également reçu une ordonnance d’interdiction pour 12 ans.

Le dealer qui a caché de la drogue dans ses fesses

Ce trafiquant de drogue a caché de l’héroïne et du crack dans ses fesses pour empêcher la police de la trouver.

Abdi Hassan a été arrêté par des officiers de la Southern Impact Team après l’avoir soupçonné de trafic de drogue à Buchan Street, Cambridge, le 7 septembre.

L’homme de 23 ans a été fouillé et retrouvé avec six téléphones portables qui sonnaient constamment. Les policiers l’ont emmené au poste de police de Parkside et un paquet contenant du crack et de l’héroïne a été récupéré dans ses fesses.

Hassan, de Chelsea Manor Street, à Londres, a plaidé coupable de possession avec intention de fournir du crack et de possession avec intention de fournir de l’héroïne.

À Cambridge Crown Court, le 16 octobre, il a été emprisonné pendant trois ans et quatre mois.

Le PC Tom Carden de la Southern Impact Team a déclaré: «Il s’agit d’une longue peine et devrait servir d’avertissement sévère à toute personne impliquée dans le trafic de drogue dans le comté que si vous êtes pris dans le Cambridgeshire, vous pourriez vous retrouver en prison.

«Il n’y a nulle part où se cacher dans ce comté pour les trafiquants de drogue et ceux qui cherchent à exploiter les vulnérabilités des autres.»

Le délinquant sexuel qui a téléchargé des images pornographiques extrêmes impliquant des animaux

Ce délinquant sexuel enregistré a téléchargé des images pornographiques extrêmes impliquant des animaux, ce qui signifie qu’il avait violé son ordonnance du tribunal.

Le 10 septembre, Allan Dobbe, 73 ans, a reçu la visite d’agents de l’Unité de protection publique (PPU) dans le cadre d’un contrôle de routine des délinquants sexuels enregistrés.

Au cours de la visite au domicile de Dobbe, les officiers ont découvert un ordinateur portable qui n’était pas installé avec un logiciel de surveillance de la gestion des risques – une violation directe de ses exigences de notification.

Une enquête plus approfondie a révélé qu’il avait également téléchargé 18 images et cinq vidéos qui comprenaient la bestialité.

En outre, il avait également supprimé son historique Internet et avait créé une nouvelle adresse e-mail, deux infractions aux exigences de son ordonnance de prévention des dommages sexuels (SHPO).

Dobbe, de All Saints Road, Peterborough, a plaidé coupable de possession de pornographie extrême d’un animal, de deux chefs de violation de son SHPO et d’un chef de manquement à ses obligations de notification.

Le 21 octobre, il a été condamné à 17 mois de prison et à 10 ans sur le registre des délinquants sexuels à Peterborough Crown Court.

DC Greg Homer-Ward a déclaré: «Tous les délinquants sexuels enregistrés dans notre comté se voient attribuer un membre de notre équipe PPU pour les surveiller. Cela comprend notamment la possibilité d’effectuer des visites inopinées à leur domicile, d’accéder à leurs appareils électroniques et de leur parler de leur activité quotidienne.

«Ces exigences sont en place pour protéger le public et c’est pourquoi nous les visitons si régulièrement pour éviter toute récidive.»

La femme qui a volé une dame âgée à un distributeur de billets

Une femme a saisi de l’argent de la main d’une dame âgée quelques secondes après l’avoir retiré d’un distributeur de billets.

Leona Hyatt, 36 ans, a vu la victime, âgée de 80 ans, retirer de l’argent devant la Natwest Bank à Cathedral Square, Peterborough, juste avant 22 heures le 18 septembre.

Alors que la victime retirait 50 £, Hyatt s’approcha d’elle et attrapa l’argent. Une lutte s’ensuivit avec la victime réussissant à récupérer 20 £, laissant Hyatt s’enfuir avec 30 £.

Un membre du public qui a été témoin du vol et a tenté de récupérer l’argent a été mordu par Hyatt sur la main.

Des agents ont trouvé et arrêté Hyatt, sans domicile fixe, le même jour dans une zone boisée près du parking Wirrina, juste à côté de Bishop’s Road. Elle a refusé de participer à l’entretien avec la police.

Le 18 octobre, elle a plaidé coupable de vol qualifié et de voies de fait en battant à Cambridge Crown Court. Elle a été condamnée à 11 mois de prison.

DC Adrian Anderson a déclaré: «Le ciblage de Hyatt sur une femme âgée vulnérable était sans cœur. Je remercie ceux qui ont offert de l’aide à la victime au moment de l’infraction.

«Hyatt a montré peu de remords pour ses actions et a recouru à la violence pour tenter de s’échapper. J’espère que le temps qu’elle passera en prison lui fera comprendre que ce n’est pas une façon durable de vivre. »

Toxicomane qui a tenté de voler une femme et a échoué

La tentative de ce toxicomane de voler une femme à Cambridge a lamentablement échoué quand il a été jeté au sol et retenu par deux passants.

Lee Hornibrook, 50 ans, a ciblé la femme en plein jour vers 11 h 25 le 12 septembre.

La victime marchait le long de Chesterton Road en direction de Jesus Green lorsque Hornibrook, sans domicile fixe, est remonté à vélo derrière elle et lui a demandé l’heure.

La victime a dit qu’elle ne le savait pas, mais Hornibrook a alors saisi son sac à main à deux mains.

Une échauffourée s’est ensuivie et la femme a tenu son sac si fermement qu’elle a été tirée au sol et traînée sur la route, lui brisant la jambe et le corps.

La femme a crié à l’aide et deux passants ont traîné Hornibrook, l’ont jeté au sol et l’ont détenu.

Les deux membres du public ont ensuite appelé la police et des officiers ont arrêté Hornibrook soupçonné de tentative de vol.

En route vers le poste de police, il a dit aux policiers qu’il avait besoin d’aide, qu’il était «vraiment désolé» et savait que ce qu’il avait fait était mal.

En entrevue, Hornibrook a déclaré que tenter de voler la femme était «idiot» et a ajouté qu’il était accro à la cocaïne et à l’héroïne.

Il a dit qu’il prévoyait de voler la femme parce qu’il n’avait pas d’argent pour acheter de la drogue, et a affirmé qu’il l’avait repérée alors qu’il parcourait la ville à vélo.

Hornibrook a admis qu’il avait l’intention de voler le sac de la femme pour voir s’il y avait de l’argent ou quelque chose de précieux à l’intérieur avant de «jeter le reste».

DC Stuart Webling, qui a enquêté, a déclaré: «Hornibrook n’a rien pensé d’approcher cette femme en plein jour dans ce qui a dû être une épreuve terrifiante.

«Je veux la féliciter d’avoir la force de l’empêcher de prendre ce qui lui appartenait et d’appeler à l’aide.

« Le courage des deux passants qui ont lutté et détenu Hornibrook ne doit pas être sous-estimé et doit également être loué. »

Le 11 octobre, à Peterborough Crown Court, Hornibrook a plaidé coupable à une tentative de vol et a été condamné à 16 mois de prison.

Un voleur emprisonné après une volée à l’étalage

Ce voleur en série a volé près de 100 £ de produits de nettoyage et de confiseries.

Kevin Holmes est entré à Poundland, à Wisbech, les 6, 7 et 13 septembre et a volé divers articles de nettoyage et des confiseries.

Holmes, de Chapnall Close, Wisbech, a également utilisé une carte bancaire volée le 11 septembre pour acheter pour 96 £ de cigarettes dans trois magasins différents en utilisant des paiements sans contact.

L’homme de 37 ans a été arrêté le 18 septembre après avoir été identifié par CCTV dans l’un des magasins.

Le 15 octobre, il a été condamné au Cambridge Crown Court après avoir plaidé coupable à trois chefs d’accusation de vol, à un chef de fraude pour fausse représentation et à une infraction à une peine avec sursis qu’il a reçue en août pour avoir manipulé des biens volés.

Le PS Kevin Sutcliffe a déclaré: «Holmes a déjà été condamné à plusieurs reprises et il est clair que les condamnations antérieures n’ont pas découragé son comportement. Je suis heureux qu’il soit derrière les barreaux et dans les rues de Wisbech. »

Le cambrioleur ivre

Cet homme a tenté de cambrioler une maison alors qu’il était ivre.

Neil Blake, 49 ans, de St Albans, avait bu quand il a brisé la vitre des portes avant et arrière de la propriété de High Street, Longstowe à environ 20 h 40 le 19 août.

La victime était à l’intérieur de la maison et a appelé la police alors qu’il pénétrait par effraction dans un Volkswagen Caddy et a volé les clés d’une camionnette à plateau.

Il s’est ensuite dirigé vers Rushbrook Close où il a repéré une Mini bleue inoccupée avec des achats à l’intérieur. Blake a commencé à manger de la nourriture et a pris les vêtements avant que la police n’arrive et ne l’arrête.

Blake a été retrouvé avec une grande coupure au bras de briser la fenêtre de la maison. Il était également en possession des clés de la camionnette et d’une bouteille de lotion après-rasage.

Le 9 octobre, à Cambridge Crown Court, il a plaidé coupable à une tentative de cambriolage et à trois chefs de vol. Il a été condamné à 21 mois de prison.

DC Ciaron Hickey a déclaré: « Blake nous a dit qu’il avait bu du sherry et qu’il ne contrôlait pas ses actions, mais ce n’est pas une excuse comme le montre la phrase.

« La victime, dans ce cas, était extrêmement secouée mais a fait la bonne chose en nous appelant immédiatement pour que nous puissions l’appréhender et cesser de commettre une infraction. »

La femme qui a menti sur l’enlèvement et l’agression sexuelle

Cette femme a menti à la police selon laquelle elle avait été kidnappée par deux hommes au couteau, puis agressée sexuellement, forcée de prendre de la drogue et de boire de l’alcool.

Cheyenne Kenmuir, de Bateman Street, Cambridge, a envoyé un texto à son amie le 29 novembre 2017 et lui a demandé d’appeler la police affirmant qu’elle avait été kidnappée et emmenée au Emperor Pub de Cambridge.

Lorsqu’elle a ensuite été interrogée au sujet de fausses allégations et a montré la télévision en circuit fermé qui contredisait son histoire, Kenmuir a toujours maintenu sa version des événements.

Elle a cependant admis avoir écrit la revue en ligne et a dit aux policiers qu’elle était contrariée et qu’elle avait «inventé des choses» par la colère.

Un mois avant la tenue de son procès, Kenmuir a finalement plaidé coupable à des accusations de détournement de justice et d’envoi d’une lettre ou d’un article véhiculant de fausses informations.

Elle a été condamnée à Cambridge Crown Court le 10 octobre où elle a été condamnée à 15 mois de prison au total.

Après avoir condamné Kenmuir, le juge Stuart Bridge a déclaré qu’en dépit de ses remords, elle avait fait preuve d’un degré de manipulation «quelque peu frappant».

L’homme qui a jeté une boisson chaude au personnel à emporter

Cet homme a jeté une boisson chaude bouillante, puis a craché sur un travailleur de la restauration rapide après avoir été invité à passer à la fenêtre suivante dans un plat à emporter.

Guiseppe Depaolo, 33 ans, a visité le service au volant de McDonald’s au Brotherhood Retail Park, à Peterborough, en juin de cette année.

Depaolo a comparu à Cambridge Crown Court le 10 octobre où il a été emprisonné pendant un an après avoir plaidé coupable à l’attaque et à une série d’autres infractions.

En mai et juin, il est parti sans payer pour du carburant d’une valeur de 400 £ provenant de quatre stations-service différentes à travers le Cambridgeshire.

Puis, le 23 juin, Depaolo et une femme inconnue ont visité un magasin Aldi à Bretton, Peterborough, et ont été mis au défi par le personnel après les avoir soupçonnés de vol à l’étalage.

Depaolo est devenu abusif envers le membre du personnel, la traitant d ‘«étrangère» et lui disant de «retourner dans son pays». Il lui a alors craché dessus ainsi qu’à son collègue avant de partir.

Depaolo a reconnu avoir commis des voies de fait graves aggravées par la race, ABH, avoir volé sans paiement, quatre infractions de recel et avoir conduit sans permis.

Le PC James Przyjemski, qui a enquêté, a déclaré: « Depaolo a pris un certain nombre de mauvaises décisions et cette condamnation, j’en suis sûr, est bien accueillie par toutes ses victimes.

« Ce genre de comportement ne sera pas toléré et nous nous efforcerons sans relâche de traduire les contrevenants en justice »

Un homme a volé au Bon Samaritain

Jason Turner

Cet homme a remboursé une offre de travail en volant de l’argent et des bijoux à une femme d’une trentaine d’années avant de s’écraser sur sa voiture.

Jason Turner, 30 ans, connaissait la femme d’un ancien emploi avant de partir travailler au pub The Bell, à Great Paxton, St Neots.

Le 10 mai, la femme a invité Turner à passer une journée à travailler au pub. Il est arrivé juste avant midi et on lui a dit plus tard de faire une pause dans l’appartement de la femme au-dessus du pub.

Peu après 14 heures, un autre employé de pub, un homme d’une soixantaine d’années, était à l’extérieur quand il a entendu un grand bruit d’une fenêtre à l’étage. Il leva les yeux et vit Turner courir sur un toit plat avec deux sacs fourre-tout vers le parking du pub.

Des officiers ont été appelés dans une ferme voisine plus tard dans la journée lorsque Turner a été aperçu en train de marcher dans des champs. Après son arrestation, il a craché sur l’un des policiers avant de crier des violences raciales.

Turner, sans domicile fixe, a été rappelé à la prison du Cambridge Crown Court le 9 octobre après avoir plaidé coupable de vol, de vol de véhicule aggravé et de voies de fait graves.

DC Craig McPherson a déclaré: «Turner a manipulé la confiance de la victime, qui essayait simplement de l’aider.

«Dans une tentative imprudente de s’échapper, il a mis la vie d’autres usagers de la route en danger, avant de maltraiter un gendarme spécial.»

Le criminel prolifique qui venait juste de sortir de prison

Un criminel prolifique qui a été libéré de prison cet été s’est de nouveau retrouvé en prison.

Paul Priestley, 41 ans, qui a un casier judiciaire s’étendant sur 25 ans, a été arrêté le 8 septembre après avoir été vu en vidéosurveillance essayant des poignées de portières de voiture dans le quartier Lyvelly Gardens de Parnwell.

Il avait été libéré de prison en juin après avoir purgé une peine pour des infractions telles que le vol de véhicules et une ordonnance de comportement criminel (CBO) lui avait été spécifiquement interdite de toucher ou d’entrer dans un véhicule sans surveillance sans l’autorisation du propriétaire.

PC Danny Cummings a déclaré: «Priestley a déjà été condamné pour vol de véhicules à moteur. Lors de sa dernière condamnation, plus de 170 infractions ont été prises en considération lors de l’imposition de la peine.

«Malgré une ordonnance de comportement criminel, à peine trois mois après sa libération, Priestley a recommencé.»

Dans une interview, Priestley, de Scalford Drive, Peterborough, a pleinement admis avoir violé son CBO et interféré avec des véhicules, s’excusant de ses actions et étant en larmes devant les officiers.

Vendredi (11 octobre), il a comparu au Peterborough Crown Court et a été condamné à 14 mois de prison après avoir plaidé coupable à une infraction à une ordonnance de comportement criminel (CBO) et à six chefs d’accusation de vol avec un véhicule dans l’intention de voler.

Homme qui a introduit des armes à feu dans des haut-parleurs

Des fusils et des munitions cachés à l’intérieur d’un téléviseur et d’un haut-parleur de musique et saisis à la frontière française étaient en route vers la maison de cet homme de Wisbech.

Un fourgon Mercedes Sprinter a été arrêté par les douaniers français le 20 juin 2014. Des objets du véhicule ont été radiographiés et des munitions ont été retrouvées cachées dans un téléviseur.

Le chauffeur de la camionnette a déclaré aux autorités frontalières que la télévision devait être livrée au domicile de Marius Supelis, avenue Ollard, Wisbech.

Les agents des forces frontalières britanniques ont ensuite été informés de l’arrêt du véhicule et des munitions saisies et de la camionnette arrêtée quelques heures plus tard au terminal du tunnel sous la Manche.

Le contenu de la camionnette a été radiographié et un sac à linge à carreaux rouges a été découvert. Il a été inspecté et a trouvé des armes à feu à l’intérieur.

Supelis a été libéré sous caution pour comparaître devant le tribunal en mai 2015, mais a fui le Royaume-Uni sur un ferry avec son partenaire et sa jeune fille deux jours avant son audition.

Un mandat d’arrêt européen a été émis en février 2016. Supelis a été arrêté plus de deux ans plus tard, le 9 avril 2018, à Valence, en Espagne, par des agents de la National Crime Agency (NCA).

Il a été renvoyé au Royaume-Uni 11 jours plus tard et placé en détention provisoire.

Vendredi (11 octobre), il a comparu à la Cour de la Couronne de Peterborough et a été condamné à 14 mois de prison après avoir plaidé coupable à une infraction à une ordonnance de comportement criminel (CBO) et à six chefs d’ingérence dans un véhicule avec l’intention de voler.

Un homme est entré par effraction dans la maison et a mordu le nez d’une femme

Cet homme est entré par effraction dans la maison de son ex-petite amie enceinte alors qu’elle dormait et l’a mordue au nez lors d’une campagne de harcèlement.

Jacob Hall, 25 ans, s’est faufilé dans la maison de Cambridge de la victime par une porte qu’elle avait accidentellement laissée ouverte vers 23 h 30 le 23 août.

Il entra immédiatement dans sa chambre et alluma la lumière, la réveillant. Il plaça sa main sur sa bouche et mordit le bout de son nez.

La victime a réussi à le faire descendre et a appelé la police alors qu’il sortait par la porte arrière. Elle est ensuite allée à l’hôpital pour une suspicion de nez cassé.

Le lendemain, Hall, de Peter Cowell Close, Kings Hedges, Cambridge, a appelé la victime environ 50 fois depuis un numéro non divulgué, lui disant qu’il l’aimait et menaçant d’agresser son jeune frère.

Hall a été arrêté et en entrevue a refusé de commenter, cependant, a plaidé coupable à des voies de fait ayant entraîné ABH et du harcèlement.

Au Cambridge Crown Court, le 4 octobre, il a été condamné à 12 mois de prison pour agression et à deux mois pour harcèlement, à exécuter simultanément. Il a également reçu une ordonnance d’interdiction de trois ans.

DC Karen Lunn a déclaré: «Hall a effrayé la victime, qui était enceinte au moment où il est apparu dans sa chambre.

«Ce type de comportement peut facilement dégénérer et devenir encore plus grave. Heureusement, Hall a été signalé et a été traduit devant les tribunaux. »

Un trafiquant de drogue pris en flagrant délit

Ce trafiquant de drogue a admis avoir été «pris en flagrant délit» après que les policiers l’aient trouvé avec plus de 100 sacs de cocaïne d’une valeur d’environ 2 500 £.

Jonathan Hart, 54 ans, a été arrêté par des officiers alors qu’il conduisait son Audi A3 bleue le long de Bellona Drive, à Peterborough, le 15 février de cette année.

Avant d’être fouillé, Hart a déclaré aux policiers qu’il avait «un peu de blanc sur lui», faisant référence à 16 sacs d’agents de cocaïne trouvés cachés dans un sac de transport dans sa poche.

Sa voiture a été fouillée et un autre sac en plastique, contenant plus de 100 sacs de cocaïne, a été trouvé dans le pied arrière. Les officiers ont également trouvé environ 1 000 £ dans la console centrale avec deux téléphones portables qui sonnaient continuellement pendant que Hart était arrêté.

Il a été emmené au poste de police de Thorpe Wood où il a d’abord affirmé que les drogues appartenaient à quelqu’un d’autre, avant d’admettre qu’il avait été pris en flagrant délit.

Hart, de Pertenhall Road, Swineshead, Bedfordshire, a plaidé coupable de possession de cocaïne avec intention de s’approvisionner et a été condamné à trois ans d’emprisonnement le 3 octobre à Peterborough Crown Court.

Un conducteur dangereux a été poursuivi pendant 40 minutes par la police

L’homme qui a craché sur les policiers

Un homme qui a brisé les vitres de cinq voitures et craché au visage de deux policiers a été emprisonné.

Ross Stevens, 31 ans, sans domicile fixe, a utilisé un porte-parapluie en béton, qu’il avait volé dans une propriété voisine, pour endommager les véhicules de la gare de Cambridge.

Lorsque les officiers sont arrivés juste avant 1 heure du matin le 22 octobre, ils ont trouvé Stevens allongé sur le siège arrière de l’une des voitures, une Ford Mondeo argentée.

Alors qu’il tentait de l’arrêter pour avoir endommagé la Mondeo, une Volkswagen Passat, une Volkswagen Golf, une BMW et une Lexus dont il avait également volé des documents, Stevens a craché au visage d’un officier.

Il a ensuite craché au visage d’un autre alors qu’il était placé en garde à vue au poste de police de Parkside.

Stevens était également recherché pour cambriolage avec intention de voler après s’être rendu derrière le bar d’un pub de Cambridge le 27 août et pour avoir volé de la viande d’une valeur de 50 £ dans un magasin de Milton Road le 30 septembre.

Le 23 octobre, à Peterborough Magistrates ’Court, Stevens a plaidé coupable à cinq chefs de dommage criminel, à deux chefs de voies de fait en battant un travailleur d’urgence, au vol d’un véhicule à moteur, au vol dans un magasin, au vol et au cambriolage.

Il a été condamné à 10 mois de détention.

Les deux hommes capturés dans une usine de cannabis

Ces deux hommes ont été capturés avec des centaines de plants de cannabis après qu’un membre du public a signalé une activité suspecte dans une propriété de Peterborough.

Kenny Hughes and Shane Cunningham, who targeted elderly women

Two men have been jailed for distraction burglaries in the east of the county.

Kenny Hughes, 28 and Shane Cunningham, 35, have been jailed for 30 months and 60 months respectively.

The duo first approached an 83-year-old woman in Drury Lane, Wicken claiming they were working in the field behind her property and offered to trim an overgrown tree for £230.

The victim told them she didn’t have that money before they reduced it to £200 and a cup of tea.

After they had left she discovered her jewellery had been taken. She spoke to a neighbour who, looking out for the woman, had taken photos of the vehicle and the number plate of the blue Passat they were driving. She reported it to police.

A short while later they knocked on the door of a 71-year-old woman at her home in Orchard Row, Soham. They claimed to be subcontractors sent to cut down bushes in her back garden following complaints from neighbours.

They barged past her with a chainsaw and went out to the garden before telling her it would cost £300 upfront and another £300 when finished. They wrote her mobile number from the wall and told her they would be back the next day.

The woman reported the incident to police and noted they had driven a blue vehicle.

Officers located the car in Fordham Road, Soham and found Cunningham in the drivers seat and Hughes in the back.

After searching the vehicle and the men, they retrieved jewellery, the money from the gardening job and the 71-year-old victim’s mobile number written on a piece of paper.

PC Henry Longhurst said: “These men were clearly driving round scouting houses and targeting elderly and vulnerable people. The sentence reflects the serious nature of the incidents.

“We are grateful to the victim of Drury Lane and her neighbour for their quick call to police and the information they were able to provide.

“As a result we were able to reunite the victim with her jewellery, a lot of which was of great sentimental value.”
