A MAN was taken to hospital with facial injuries after having what is thought to be acid sprayed in his face during a street robbery.
Police were out in force searching the area and sealed off Lawn Hill and Orchard Gardens.
Lock the scum up and throw the key away.
Standing by for those who will stand up for their human rights
Just charged with robbery and no other assault charges?
It depends on the category of Robbery they have been charged with. I imagine they have been charged with category 1 causing phsical damage to the victim this carries a maximum life imprisonment, but sentencing varies from a community order to 12 years custodial sentence. Now I was a witness to this dispicable crime, and after witnessing the pain and trauma that this elderly gentleman went through, I would personally throw the book at them and never let them see the light of day again!
completely agree @leatash. it doesn't sound like the people involved are from dawlish and i hope that goes some way to allaying the fears i've heard from a number of people in dawlish frightened about what is happening to the town.
One of the men was from Dawlish the other from Sunderland so lets hope they get a good few years in jail and maybe it will be a deterrent to others and well done to Devon and Cornwall Police for the quick arrests.
. Apparantly Geordies have moved into the drug trade in Dawlish.
A quick search on Facebook reveals boths men originate from Sunderland.
