A man has been jailed after robbing a 10-year-old boy in the street on Teesside.
The court heard how the 10-year-old had been shouted at and kicked in the shin by Mark Duffie, before the man snatched his mobile phone.
The 28-year-old, who had 81 previous convictions, was "talking weirdly" as he stood behind the boy and followed him out of a shop in Stockton, before he stole his phone.
Duffie, identified from CCTV of the incident, told police he couldn't remember the incident or going out at all.
He also told police that he had taken heroin and smoked cannabis and could not remember committing the crime or not.
Duffie denied kicking a child, and later admitted robbery. He has been jailed for 22 months.
