An Ipswich schoolboy was pushed up against a fence and robbed of his watch as he walked home from a barbecue, a court has heard.
The 15-year-old had been at a barbecue in Bramford Road on the evening of August 4 last year and was walking home alone along London Road in the area of Chantry Park when he saw two males ahead of him, Ipswich Crown Court was told.
One of the men approached him and asked for a cigarette and the boy recognised him as Christon Duberry, said Joanne Eley, prosecuting.
Duberry had then asked the boy if he could try on his watch, which had cost £19.99, and when he refused Duberry had grabbed his wrist and pushed him up against a fence.
Duberry made a comment which the boy took to be a threat to stab him and when the watch was unclasped and fell to the ground Duberry picked it up and walked off with it.
Duberry, 21, of Kelly Road, Ipswich, admitted robbery and was given a 12 month prison sentence suspended for two years, a six month curfew and a 20 day rehabilitation requirement.
