Hammer robber jailed
A ROBBER has been jailed after being part of a group which stole £5,000 from a heavily pregnant woman after threatening her with a claw hammer.
Sunna Lock, pictured, of Main Road, Naphill, was one of three men who told his victim her husband had been killed – before they threatened her in front of her young son.
Lock, aged 23, was this week caged for five years and eight months after a Reading Crown Court jury convicted him of robbery.
Two other men from Reading pleaded guilty to the offence, which took place in the Shinfield area of Reading on September 25.
The court heard that Lock and his two accomplices met a man under the pretext of selling him motorcycles.
The man was with his heavily pregnant wife and young son when the three offenders led him into a field to where they told him the motorcycles were being kept.
Jurors were told that a short time later they returned and approached the vehicle where the man’s wife and young son were waiting.
She was threatened with the claw end of a hammer and told her husband had been killed, before the men made off with £5,000 which they stole.
