Man jailed for 13 years for beating and robbery

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Snaresbrook Crown Court Snaresbrook Crown Court

A man has been jailed for 13 years for beating a pawnbroker and stealing £90,000 of gold and jewellery from his shop.

Lithuanian Adrej Perevalov, 43, of Leyton, was sentenced on Wednesday at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

On November 23 2012, two men entered Capital Gold Jewellers and Pawnbrokers in High Street, Walthamstow, at 1pm.

They asked to see a tray of silver rings from a display under the counter, but as the shop owner bent down to retrieve the items he was punched in the head.

When the 60-year-old fell to the ground, the two men then jumped over the counter and repeatedly kicked and punched him on the floor.

He was then dragged around and forced to open two safes while, what the victim believed was a knife, was pointed into his back.

The suspects left with gold and jewellery worth around £90,000.

The shopkeeper was left with serious head, leg and arm injuries and has been unable to work since the incident, forcing him to permanently close his shop.

A police investigation uncovered Mr Perevalov's DNA on a rucksack left at the crime scene.

On the February 27 police arrested Mr Perevalov at an address in Station Road, Forest Gate.

The second suspect has yet to be traced.

No address permanent addres has been supplied for Mr Perevalov.

They just keep on giving and enriching don't they? How many years before England becomes a third world country and gets aid from America and Canada?

Dave mp makes a very valid point. You have to remember that there was absolutely no crime at all whatsoever in the UK until the evil EU allowed millions and millions and millions of Eastern European scroungers, thieves and benefit cheats to enter our beloved country...

And shame on you Guardian. This is a very nasty crime but (sadly) not that unusual these days. So why (once again) single it out for reporting when there are so many similar cases? Because someone in your team obviously has their own sad little agenda of reporting criminal cases involving Eastern Europeans. Sad, so sad. Who do you think you are? The Daily Mail?

Yep it all falls into place: the freedom to troll, the racially biased news stories, the rascist comments.

Keep up the good work T.Watts, mine is done here.
