They were each sentenced to 33 months in prison.

Police were called to Lammas Road at around 7.20pm on Friday September 7 2018 after reports two men had fled after approaching a 28-year-old man on the street, knocking him to the floor and stealing his wallet and tobacco. They had also kicked him repeatedly as he lay on the ground.

Chapman and Coker were arrested after officers found them inside a vehicle they suspected to have been involved and had tracked down.

Detective Sergeant Matt Scott said: "Chapman and Coker showed no mercy to their victim as they repeatedly kicked him as he lay on the ground and this has been reflected in the sentences they were given.

"They are violent individuals and this case shows that we will leave no stone unturned in tracking down these offenders and we won't tolerate these offences in Nottinghamshire."
