Man jailed for role in Shinfield claw hammer robbery

A 23-year-old man has been jailed for five years and eight months for his role in a robbery in Shinfield in September last year.

Sunna Lock, 23, from Main Road, Naphill, High Wycombe, was sentenced at Reading Crown Court yesterday after being found guilty by a jury at the same court on May 4.

He was one of three men who met a man and his family under the pretext of selling him motorcycles.

While he was led off to see the bikes three men threatened his heavily pregnant wife and young son with the claw end of a hammer and stole £5,000.

The other men, Thomas Birks and Carl Pontin, pleaded guilty to robbery before the trial and were sentenced to a total of more the eight years in jail on May 10.
