Dannie Robinson, aged 38, has been jailed for seven years after pleading guilty to possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence and to affray. In January last year, police received a report that the occupants of a car, stopped in stationary traffic, had got out of their vehicle and attacked another car with hammers and bats. Police later stopped the suspects’ car in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire and arrested Robinson and two others in connection with the attack. During their arrests, a member of the public found a loaded handgun nearby. The suspects were then further arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm. Forensic examination of the weapon revealed Robinson’s DNA.

Lichfield Live


A man allegedly used a “Taser-type device” on one of two women he forced to open a safe at a bakery in Lichfield, Staffordshire. The victims were left unharmed but “understandably distressed”. Police subsequently arrested a man in nearby Swadlincote on suspicion of robbery, possession of Class A drugs and theft of a motor vehicle. Detectives are looking for a second man in connection with the incident.

Daily Echo


Neil Glover has been jailed for eighteen years after being found guilty of two counts of rape, assault by penetration and possessing an imitation firearm with intent to commit rape. Glover committed the first offence in February last year, when he visited a woman’s home in Christchurch, Dorset to have a massage. During a second visit to the same address, Glover raped the woman and pointed an imitation firearm at her head. Despite a clearly-implied threat from Glover, the victim reported the attacks to police.
