Britain: A violent black mugger walked free from court after the judge heard that he had turned to crime after his family were forced to move from their affluent home to a council estate because of the recession
Diallo Allen, 18, from Chorlton, Greater Manchester, mugged two teenage girls and a boy stealing an iPhone, a Blackberry and a £800 designer handbag. Unemployed Allen, who has a number of petty previous convictions, pounced as they left a restaurant but was later caught by police riding away on his bicycle. One of his victims was pulled to the ground and was left with cuts and bruises and a sprained hand, while another said that she feared for her life.
