Two jailed for Clapham knife point robbery

Streatham Guardian: Michael Bond Michael Bond

Two men have been jailed for robbing a man at knife-point in Clapham.

In the early hours of Sunday, November 24, last year, a 36-year-old man visited Cecil Graham’s, 61, home in Jeffreys Road, Clapham.

The parties were all known to one another and Graham’s companion, Michael Bond, 45, of Cedars Road, was also present.

The victim got his wallet out, which contained approximately £250, to pay Graham some money for a bottle of whiskey.

However, when Graham saw all the money he knocked the wallet out of the man’s hand so the money fell on the lounge floor along with some of his personal belongings.

Bond picked up some of the cash and forced the victim out of the property with a kitchen knife - stabbing him twice in the back.

The police were called and found Graham in possession of a large amount of cash and the victim’s hat and personal belongings inside the property.

Police seized a kitchen knife used in the attack which was forensically linked to Bond and both were arrested.

Today Bond and Graham were sentenced at Inner London Crown Court after being found guilty at trial.

Bond was sentenced to 24 months for unlawful wounding and 12 months theft with the sentences running concurrently.

Graham was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment, suspended for 24 months and ordered to undertake a six month drugs rehabilitation programme and supervision order for 12 months for robbery.

Detective Constable Luke Bielby said: “This is a pleasing result and police will continue to target those involved in violent and other serious crimes.”

Poor headline writing, only one of them was jailed. The other got a suspended sentence, so is still able to walk the streets.
