Robber faces deportation after sentence
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.”
