The 19 year-old attacked the man on Arnold High-street, at 10.30am on Sunday 18th August 2013.

Mr Lubasi punched the victim to the ground before demanding the games-console controller and his phone, before two members of the public intervened.

Detective Constable Corriane Allen said:

"This was a nasty attack and the victim has been badly affected as a result... If it had not been for the members of the public who intervened, it could have been more serious."
