Burglar who punched Plymouth homeowner is jailed for almost three years
A BURGLAR who punched a homeowner in the face has been jailed for just under three years.
Ryan Herring, aged 20, of Providence Place, Stoke pleaded guilty to robbery and burglary at a previous hearing at Plymouth Crown Court. Prosecutor Julia Cox explained how unemployed Herring was with 19-year-old Damien Roseveare on the night of September 18 last year in Paradise Road, Stoke, when they assaulted and took a rucksack from Lee Toh. Mr Toh had chased the men to a nearby car park, being joined by motorist Rupert Blomfield who had seen the assault.
Confronted by their victim and the Good Samaritan the pair dropped the bag and fled. Later that same night they were confronted by a resident in a bedroom at his home in Paradise Place, Stoke after the man's five-year-old son told his Dad they had "visitors" upstairs.
Herring's advocate, Jason Beale, said his client had problems with alcohol and was "obviously immature".
