PUBLISHED: 10:25 01 July 2019
Five criminals were put behind bars in Suffolk this week – including a woman involved in a violent robbery, a teen abductor, and a renowned artist who downloaded indecent images of children.
1. Woman involved in fraud and violent robbery jailed for 12 years
A 30-year-old woman who stood by and watched while two men armed with a knife and a hammer attacked a man during a violent robbery has been jailed for 12 years.
Cherie Tyler of Haverhill went to Martin Golding's flat in Haverhill, at 5.15 am on February 24 asking for money and if she could stay with him.
Mr Golding refused both requests and showed her out but before he could shut the door two men barged in and attacked him - fracturing four of his ribs, his skull and causing bleeding on the brain.

2. Man jailed for six years after abduction and sexual assault of teenager
A 15-year-old schoolgirl was sexually assaulted by a 25-year-old man who abducted her while she was on a family holiday at Center Parcs in Elveden Forest.
Grant Mcshane has been jailed for six years with Judge Rupert Overbury describing his behaviour as "predatory".
McShane had told the girl he loved her and that he would buy her the car she wanted which was grooming behaviour. He then persuaded the girl to meet him while she was on holiday with her family and had sexually assaulted her after plying her with alcohol and class A drugs.
3. Drug dealer jailed following information from member of public
A drug dealer has been jailed for more than four years after police received a tip off from a concerned member of the public and pulled over a black Mercedes in Cambridge.
Officers pulled the vehicle over and driver Kayode Brathwaite was found to have £560 cash in his pockets and two phones belonging to him in the vehicle. Passenger Jessica Palmer was found to have £430 cash along with another iPhone.
When their home in Newmarket was searched police discovered three wraps of cocaine and two wraps of heroin - and Brathwaite's phone was found to contain messages relating to drug dealing.

4. Victims leave court with 'heads held high' as child abuse 'parasite' is jailed
