A robber from Maidstone who held a knife to a man's throat and robbed him while they were alone in a lift has been jailed.
Carl Garwood, 50, of James Street, attacked and robbed his victim - a man in his 50s - in the elevator of a building in Lower Stone Street.
Garwood pressed a knife to the man’s throat, while demanding he hand over his wallet. Garwood then took a handful of cash, threw the wallet on the lift floor and fled down a corridor.
He was later identified on CCTV - approaching and talking to the victim shortly before the attack in February 2017.
Garwood was arrested and charged with robbery and possessing a knife.
He was found guilty on both counts and jailed for six years.
Garwood waited until his victim was alone and vulnerable in what was clearly a targeted attack.
He had nothing to say when questioned and showed no remorse for his actions.
I hope this sentence will be of some solace to the victim."
