[Jailed]: Dwayer Jude

A woman has been jailed following a robbery at an ATM in Leytonsone.

Dwayer Jude, 28 (10.05.90) of no fixed abode, appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court on Friday, 8 February where she was sentenced to two years and nine months’ imprisonment for the robbery of a woman at an ATM on Leytonstone Road in Walthamstow at 15:10hrs on 28 November 2018.

The victim, a women in her early 40s, was withdrawing money from a cashpoint, while a second woman was waiting behind her.

This second woman then approached the victim, punched and slapped her, and then stole the money she had just withdrawn.

The victim did not require medical treatment.

Detective Inspector Steve Bluemore, of Waltham Forest CID, said: "This was a shocking attack in broad daylight and although the victim was not seriously injured, the effects of becoming the victim of crime run far deeper than a loss of cash.

“I hope that the sentence handed down today brings a measure of comfort the victim."
