Rob­ber faces de­por­ta­tion af­ter sen­tence

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

Am an will be de­ported back to his na­tive Lithua­nia af­ter serv­ing a 30 month jail sen­tence for rob­bing and as­sault­ing a woman in a city cen­tre street.

Dovy­das Vaisvi­las, (31), of Thorpe Park Road, Peterborough, was found guilty at Peterborough Crown Court of rob­bing his vic­tim of £60 and se­ri­ously as­sault­ing her on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 17, last year.

The woman was left with se­ri­ous in­juries to her face and mouth fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent in Brook Street, Peterborough, dur­ing which she was punched re­peat­edly to the head.

The vic­tim man­aged to re­mem­ber part of the num­ber plate of Vaisvi­las’ car, which helped de­tec­tives bring the rob­ber to jus­tice.

The woman has now been praised by po­lice for her brav­ery.

As well as re­ceiv­ing the cus­to­dial sen­tence Vaisvi­las, who is Lithua­nian, also re­ceived a de­por­ta­tion or­der to be car­ried out once he has been re­leased from pri­son.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Sarah Phillips, of Cam­bridgeshire po­lice, wel­comed the sen­tence handed out to Vaisvi­las.

She said: “This was a par­tic­u­larly nasty as­sault and I would like to com­mend the vic­tim for her brav­ery in re­mem­ber­ing the num­ber plate which helped us to catch the of­fender.”
