A vicious thug has been locked up after he stormed a Bridlington shop brandishing a knife and demanding money, before pushing a staff member and stealing alcohol from the store.
Izac Thorne, 22, of Harrington Road, Bridlington, was sentenced to 40 months behind bars after he pleaded guilty to a robbery on November 25, 2019 at a convenience store in Sewerby Road.
He was sentenced at Hull Crown Court on Friday, January 24.
The offence was described as "serious" and a "frightening ordeal" for Thorne's victims inside the shop.
Detective Sergeant Dave Porteus, from the Humberside Police Criminal Investigation Department, said: “Thorne committed a serious offence without care or consideration for his victims.
“I can only imagine how frightening the ordeal must have been for those in the shop at the time of Thorne’s attack and I want to thank them for their cooperation throughout our investigation.
“I hope this sentence sends a clear message to anyone considering committing a similar offence, we will bring you to justice.”
Thorne was given a 40-month sentence for robbery with a concurrent 12-month sentence for possession of an offensive weapon.
