A man who robbed a woman in the street has been sentenced to 20 months in prison.

Stuart Nicholson appeared at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday (Monday 6 November 2017) where he admitted approaching a woman in Doncaster Road, Langold threatening her and forcing her to withdraw £500 from a cash machine.

The 50-year-old, from near Worksop, was arrested several days after the incident in July and remanded in custody.

Police Constable Nicholas Wood said: "This is a good result for Nottinghamshire Police following several months of hard work. We will always do our utmost to prosecute such offenders and protect the public."

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
