A man who threatened a teenager with a screwdriver in Lowestoft and stole £2,000 worth of his belongings, including his bike, phone and bag, has been jailed.

Ipswich Crown Court heard that Nicholas Everett, 32, of London Road South in the town, approached a 17-year-old boy at about 11.20pm on June 9.

During the robbery on Yarmouth Road, in which Everett produced a screwdriver and pressed it against the victim's chest and neck, the boy's mountain bike, iPhone, ear pods, bag and contents, including cards, were stolen.

The victim was not physically injured.

Police subsequently arrested a 32-year-old man on suspicion of robbery, after which Everett was charged with robbery and possession of an offensive weapon.

During the hearing, Everett also asked for a robbery in Saxmundham in May 2020, when he stole a mountain bike from Station Approach after threatening a man with a screwdriver, to be taken into consideration.
