Three men have been jailed for a total of 30 years after being found guilty of carrying out a violent armed robbery. 

Dylan Bosa, 18 (01.08.00) of Hoser Avenue, Lewisham; Luke Mullings, 20 (01.07.98) of Castlecombe Road, Greenwich; and, Tommi Harradine, 21 (26.01.98) of Southover, Barnet were found guilty of robbery following a trial in May.

On Thursday, 13 June, at Woolwich Crown Court, Bosa and Mullings were each sentenced to 12 years’ imprisonment with an extended licence period of three years for the robbery and two years for possession of a bladed article, to be served concurrently.

Harradine was sentenced to six years’ in prison for robbery.

The court heard that on 11 November 2018, the three men forced their way into a residential address in Downham armed with knives.

Once inside, they violently assaulted the two occupants before stealing money and other items.

One of the victims, a man in his teens, suffered a cut to his wrist during the assault while the other was left with minor injuries.

Detectives from the Met’s South East Command Unit launched an investigation and identified the three suspects via forensic evidence at the scene.

When Bosa was arrested on 20 November 2018, he was found to be in possession of some of the stolen property, while a large knife and a sword were found within his house.

Mullings and Harradine were arrested together in November 2018 at a caravan park in Leysdown, Kent. At the point of arrest they were in possession of a large machete.

On sentencing, His Honour Judge Miller said the men posed a significant risk of further harm to members of the public.

Detective Sergeant Ian Barnard, who led the investigation, said: “These men are all very dangerous individuals and even more so as a group, they clearly have a complete disregard for the law.

“All three men have an extensive criminal past for violence and weapons offences and now that this sentence has been passed residents of London will be that little bit safer.

“These convictions are a result of a meticulous investigation by South East CID and we hope it brings some form of closure to the victims of this attack, as well as demonstrating our commitment to getting men like this off our streets.”
