TWO men who robbed a teenager of a designer jacket when they attacked him in broad daylight have appeared in court.

Elliott Wood and Macauley Owen were charged with robbery after a teenage boy was wrestled to the ground and punched before his Moncler coat was stolen.

Wood was sentenced to 12 months in custody while his co-accused was give the same sentence but it was deferred for three months to enable him to work with probation and potentially stay out of prison.

Teesside Crown Court heard how the 14-year-old victim was left shaken and upset by his ordeal on April 4.

Owen, 23, of Fairfax Court, Hemlington, Middlesbrough, and 19-year-old Wood, of Coniston Grove, Middlesbrough, both pleaded guilty to the robbery.

Judge Paul Watson QC told Wood he was being jailed immediately due to his 'unenviable' record.

The judge warned Owen to work with probation.

He said: "If you walk in here and think you have gotten away with it scot-free, I can assure you that in three months time, when Mr Wood is out and he is able to put this behind him, you will just be starting your sentence."
