TO St Albans Crown Court where Eneas Tanyongana is accused of robbing a 16-year-old of his mobile on a train between Rye House and Ware stations on March 16.

It is alleged that Tanyongana did threaten to stab him if he didn’t hand it over.

“The boy was obviously very scared and handed over the phone without argument.

“When the boy asked what he was supposed to do without a phone, Tanyongana decided to hand over his own phone, complete with contact details and photos.”

Police used the information to trace 21-year-old Tanyongana, of Risdens, Harlow.

Adds DC Pine:

“It was a combination of Tanyongana’s own stupidity and good police work that led to him being arrested just hours after the offence.”

Tanyongana is sentenced received a six-month suspended sentence.
