A youth who mugged a lone woman in Isleworth, while he was subject to a rehabilitation order and curfew, has been jailed for three years

18 year old Maurice Lennon approached the victim from behind as she walked home in Sidmouth Avenue on the 19th of March and punched her in the head.

He went on to hit the 50-year-old woman two more times before wrestling her handbag from her and running off.

Lennon was captured on CCTV cameras in the area and was arrested at his home in Hounslow.

At the time of the robbery Lennon was on a night-time curfew which started at 9pm until 7am.

On the night of the 19th of March, the monitoring equipment showed that Lennon had breached his curfew by arriving home 11 minutes late.

When Lennon’s phone was analysed officers found he had he had made a call to a local cab company requesting a taxi.

This call was made about four minutes after the robbery from Moreton Avenue where the handbag was later found.

Whilst talking on the phone to order a taxi Lennon is heard clearly out of breath.

This is the call he made.

It was apparent to the investigating officers that he was trying to get away from the area as quickly as possible and return home before breaching his curfew.

Lennon was subsequently charged with robbery on the 4th of April and remanded to Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court the following day.

He finally pleaded guilty to robbery at Isleworth Crown Court on Monday, the 9th of February.
