Jack Alexander Dancy (19) from Barnard Street, Salisbury and Ashley John Peters (18) from Coltsfoot Close, Amesbury were sentenced today at Salisbury Crown Court for their parts in a robbery.

Dancy had previously pleaded guilty to the robbery which occurred in the Cathedral Close in July 2013 and was sentenced to two years imprisonment. Peters had pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods and witness intimidation for which he was sentenced to a total of 12 months imprisonment.

At approximately 10:30 pm the victims, two men aged 22 and 26, were sat on a bench when they were approached by the offenders. Dancy threatened the men with a knife and demanded they hand over their mobile phones and leave the area. The victims handed over their mobiles and walked quickly out of The Close into the High Street where they approached a couple and asked them to call the police.

Officers were swiftly on the scene. Following enquiries in the area and CCTV analysis the suspects were quickly identified and arrested.

DC Maddy Hennah of the Salisbury Priority Crime Team said: ‘We are satisfied with the result today, the victims were very shaken by the incident and the sentence imposed reflects the seriousness of the actions of Dancy and Peters.’

Photos of Ashley Peters and Jack Dancy are attached.
