2 min read

A pair of thugs have been jailed after leaving a man for dead before robbing him in the street, a court has heard.

Jamie Crake and Leigh Glave, who have 35 previous convictions between them, repeatedly kicked and stamped on their victim who they tackled at knife point.

A witness to the attack in the early hours of May 4 this year told Swansea Crown Court that they thought the pair had killed their victim who was walking in Port Talbot, Wales Online reports.

Crake, 31, threatened the man with a knife before the pair took him to the ground and booted him with Glave, 50, delivering powerful stamps to his head, stomach and testicles.

The pair then briefly walked away before returning to go through the stricken man's pockets, and steal his two mobile phones along with £200 in cash.

Miss George said a resident living nearby who was awoken by the disturbance later described the defendants as acting like "wild animals".

The court heard the victim did eventually regain consciousness, and made several attempts to stand before staggering away along the street. By the time the emergency services arrived on the scene he had gone.

Police were able to identify the attackers from CCTV.

Both defendants subsequently gave "no comment interviews".

Judge Paul Thomas QC said the pair had used a "savage" level of violence, and the CCTV was "sickening" to watch making even him, an experienced judge hardened to watching such footage in court, wince.

Acknowledging their guilty pleases, the judge gave Crake a 12-year sentence for public protection comprising eight years in custody, and an extended four years on licence.

Glave was sentenced him to seven years behind bars.

Speaking after the sentencing South Wales Police temporary detective inspector David Wells said: "This was a vicious and unprovoked attack on the victim where he was repeatedly punched and kicked to the head and body – even when he lay unconscious on the ground.

"Instead of calling for help the defendants come back and rob the victim. Miraculous the victim did manage to get up and walk off after the incident.

"Violence of any kind will not be tolerated and these offenders will now be spending time behind bars."
