A violent man who robbed a 16-year-old boy in Kendal has been sent to prison for nearly five years.

James Daniel Walker, 24, held a pair of scissors to his victim's neck and nose during a night time incident on the November 19th last year.

He also struck the teenager with a rock and tried to force a stone into his mouth, before ordering the teen to withdraw £20 from a cashpoint.

Walker, of Oxenholme Road in Kendal, was sentenced for that and a raft of other violent crimes at Carlisle Crown Court today.

He had previously pleaded guilty to the attempted robbery of another teenager in Kendal on the September 27th.

He had also admitted a common assault, possession of two offensive weapons and illegal drugs, and also two counts of wounding which related to football violence.

On that occasion, the court heard, Walker used a hammer to strike and injure two Lancaster City supporters.

Walker received a total sentence of four years and eight months from Judge Peter Davies, saying Walker had been guilty of "repeated and continued acts of violence".
