Oaktree Crescent, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

A man has been jailed for ten months for the attempted robbery of a couple in Oaktree Crescent, Bradley Stoke, in March.

The 19-year-old from Bradley Stoke admitted the offence when he appeared before Bristol Crown Court on 19th June.

He was identified after local people responded to an appeal for information issued by the police.

He had approached a couple who were walking home at about 10.30pm on a Saturday night. He demanded money, threw beer over them and was racially abusive and threatening before making off empty-handed.

Neighbourhood PC Claire Fletcher said:

“This is a safe place to live and the community will not tolerate this sort of behaviour. I’d like to thank everyone for their support in this case.”

A Bradley Stoke man has been jailed for a year after police discovered evidence that he had viewed images of child pornography on his laptop.

The 46-year-old accountant, of Little Meadow (near Baileys Court), was caught after staff at a Tesco store where he had taken his laptop for repair notified police of their concerns that it had been used to display child abuse images.

Bristol Crown Court also heard that the man had been jailed for six months in 2008 for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl.

Recorder Mr Philip Mott QC ordered the man to register as a sex offender for ten years.
