|Prison Sentence and ASBO For 42 Year Chiswick Man|
Jean Paul Severin found guilty of Sutton Court Road robbery and assault
A 42 year old Chiswick man has been given a 15 month sentence after he pleaded guilty to robbery.
Jean Paul Severin of Deans Close, W4 also received a 5 Year Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) which is suspended until his release from custody.
The ASBO prohibits Severin from:
1. Begging, attempting to beg or gathering alms in any public place within England and Wales
2. Approaching, following or initiating any conversation with any female, without her consent, in any public place within England and Wales.
3. Engaging in any behaviour that is causing or likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any person not of the same household as himself in any public place within England and Wales.
The sentencing and ASBO came after he assaulted one women and stole the handbag of another on Sutton Court Road on 29th May 2009.
Police were called at 11.15pm to reports of a robbery. Three women aged 44, 49 and 53 years old were walking along the road when they became aware of a man walking behind them hurriedly.
One of the females asked Jean Paul Severin if he wanted to go in front of them which he did. He then turned suddenly and tried to snatch the handbag from the shoulder of one of the women. Both the victim and her friend attempted to hold on to the bag but Severin was too strong for them.
The victim fell to the ground in the struggle and was dragged along the pavement by Severin who also managed to kick her friend several times in the leg before the women were forced to let go of the handbag.
Severin was arrested for this offence the following day and appeared before Feltham Magistrate Court on 31st May.
