Two jailed for city crime spree

Leicestershire Police News Feed - 2 hours 27 min ago

A crime spree which ended with a serious assault has resulted in two people being jailed for more than 23 years.

Following a trial in November last year Remeel Wright, 19, of Seddons Close, Leicester, was found guilty of burglary, two counts of attempted robbery, unlawful wounding, robbery and being carried in a conveyance taken without authority.

Kyle Page, 23, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty at the beginning of the trial to two counts of burglary, robbery, taking a vehicle without consent and criminal damage.

Yesterday (Monday 22 January) Wright was sentenced to 11 years in prison and Page was sentenced to 12 years and 10 months in prison.

The conviction relates to a number of incidents which occurred during the night of Sunday 7 May, 2017 in the city centre.

Kyle and Page burgled Venom Nightclub in Belgrave Gate, threatening staff before stealing a large quantity of alcohol.

Wright approached the occupant of a car in Jubilee Square and tried to steal it. He didn’t take it and both Page and Wright left the scene in a black VW Golf, which was believed to have been stolen previously.

Shortly after the burglary several calls were received from members of the public reporting two people being assaulted in Regent Road after an attempt was made to steal the victims’ car.

Page dragged one of the victims from the car and assaulted him, leaving him with a number of injuries including a fracture to his arm, cracked ribs and fractures to his face. The second victim sustained a serious injury to his head and required 35 stitches. A mobile phone and car keys were also stolen during this incident.

Detective Constable Emma Kunne, the investigating officer, she said: “The defendants didn’t just stop at the burglary they went to commit further offences in the city. The victims of the assault sustained serious injuries and are, no doubt, still living with the awful events of that night.

“We are pleased both men have been convicted for their part in the incidents. The evidence against them was overwhelming and we’d like to thank witnesses who assisted us during the investigation and also through the subsequent legal proceedings for their co-operation.”
