Investigating officer, Detective Constable Alex Burgham, said: ‘Musse and his partner-in-crime travelled into Kent with the sole purpose of stealing a valuable phone. This was accomplished by distracting a shop worker before assaulting them.
‘A prompt investigation led to his identification and Musse was tracked down to an address in London. He was already serving a suspended sentence for a similar offence and a period of time in prison was the only possible conclusion.’
