TWO brothers who attacked and robbed a vulnerable man in Stourbridge have been jailed.

Drug users David and Dean Tromans were in the town centre on Sunday, September 6, 2020 when they saw a man they knew who also used drugs.

David, aged 36, of Oakfield Avenue, Kingswinford, and 34-year-old Dean of Bredon Road, Amblecote, struck up a conversation with the man who then went off to purchase drugs.

He then met with the brothers again around an hour later.

According to West Midlands Police, after sitting with the brothers for a little while, the man stood up to leave and was suddenly struck to the side of the face by Dean Tromans, which caused him to fall to the ground.

He then continued to punch the man while his brother David robbed him of cash and his mobile phone.

The pair left their victim with his jaw fractured in two places. The victim required surgery for his jaw and he also sustained injuries to his ribs and arms.

Within a week, officers caught up with the brothers and they were subsequently charged.

At Wolverhampton Crown Court on Wednesday last week (May 17), both men were sentenced to six years and three months in prison.

Investigation Officer Constable Jodie Cox said: “This was a particularly nasty robbery against a vulnerable man, which led to him requiring a stay in hospital and surgery for the wounds that David and Dean Tromans inflicted.

"The sentence they received reflects the seriousness of their offence and I’m pleased to see that both have now been taken off the streets".
