Merseyside Police welcome sentencing of teenager for attempted robbery in Bootle

MERSEYSIDE Police have welcoming the sentencing of a teenager, for attempted robbery, in Bootle, July 2017, in which a man, his pregnant female partner and their dog were targeted. 18 year old, Ethan Taylor, from Seaforth, was sentenced to 4 years imprisonment after pleading guilty to attempted robbery, at Liverpool Crown Court, on Wednesday, 3 January 2018. We are told that on Friday, 7 July 2017, the victims were walking their dog on Seaforth Road when they were approached by 3 unknown males, who demanded an iPhone from the female victim. This was refused and the man and woman were assaulted and their dog was snatched and dumped in a nearby garden. Following enquiries, Taylor was identified as the ringleader and was arrested and charged with the offence.

Detective Constable Danny Pimbley, from the investigation team, said:- "It is pleasing to see Taylor removed from the streets for the foreseeable future, and I want to express our enormous praise to both victims, who fully and bravely supported our investigation throughout. Thankfully there were no lasting injuries, but to set upon a couple, and particularly a pregnant woman, in order to try and steal a phone, is nothing short of disgusting. The victims would also like to thank the prosecuting barrister, Henry Riding, for the sensitive way they were helped through the court process. We will always support victims of crime in a sensitive and compassionate way, ensuring they are able to come forward and see the perpetrators brought to justice."

In her Victim Impact Statement, the female victim said:- "This whole incident has made me feel scared, sick, and nervous. I have experienced a lot of unpleasant incidents in my life and this has raised so many emotions. This time I am not a victim, I am a survivor."
