Dylan Aimable-Brown, 32, of Lavender Hill, Milton Keynes, was sentenced on Friday, March 26, at Luton Crown Court for robbery, attempted robbery and two counts of possession of a bladed article.

Just after midnight on February 6, 2019, Aimable-Brown approached a man on Dallow Road, Luton, near the junction with Ashburnham Road.

He threatened the victim with a knife, demanding he hand over the contents of his pockets.

After the victim handed over a debit card, Aimable-Brown fled.

One hour later, at the taxi rank by Luton train station, Aimable-Brown again produced the knife and threatened a second man, forcing him towards the cashpoint. A station worker came outside and Aimable-Brown fled the scene empty handed.

Aimable-Brown was tracked on CCTV and arrested a short while later.

Detective Constable Oliver Fitton, from Bedfordshire Police, said: “Both victims have spoken of the fear they experienced when being threatened by Aimable-Brown at knifepoint.

“They both thought they would be stabbed, and have understandably suffered emotional distress as a result.

“We will never tolerate knife crime on our streets, and seeing Aimable-Brown locked up will hopefully help both victims recover from their ordeal.”

Aimable-Brown was sentenced to four years for robbery, four years for attempted robbery, and a year each for two counts of possession of a bladed article, all to run concurrently.
