robbery offences

A person is guilty of robbery if he or she steals and uses or threatens force in order to do so, either immediately before or at the time of committing the act. In other words, robbery is similar to theft as it involves the deliberate taking of property belonging to another person with the intention to permanently deprive them of this property, but also has the additional element of violence or the threat of violence.

Robbery can take a number of forms and can include:

  • Robbery at a business such as a shop or bookmakers
  • Bank robberies
  • Cash in transit robberies
  • Street robberies also referred to as muggings

Robbery is a serious crime with legal repercussions ranging from fines or community service orders to life imprisonment. The severity of the crime will have an impact on the sentence. For example, if a robbery takes place with the use of a weapon such as a firearm, the given sentence is likely to be more severe than other types of robbery.
