Teenager admits attacking pregnant woman for her iPhone – Liverpool Echo

A teenager who attacked a pregnant woman for her iPhone and snatched her dog has been locked up for four years.

Ethan Taylor, 18, was identified as the ringleader of a gang-of-three who targeted a couple as they walked their pet close to their home in Seaforth.

Liverpool crown court heard how the couple were approached by three males at around 11pm on July 7 last year. They demanded the mum-to-be’s iPhone and when she refused both she and her partner were assaulted.

The attackers snatched the dog which was dumped in a nearby garden.

Taylor was later arrested and today pleaded guilty to attempted robbery.

In a statement prepared for the court the woman said: “This whole incident has made me feel scared, sick, and nervous. I have experienced a lot of unpleasant incidents in my life and this has raised so many emotions. This time I am not a victim, I am a survivor.”

After Taylor was sentenced to four years Detective Constable Danny Pimbley, from the investigation team, said: “It is pleasing to see Taylor removed from the streets for the foreseeable future, and I want to express our enormous praise to both victims, who fully and bravely supported our investigation throughout.

“Thankfully there were no lasting injuries, but to set upon a couple, and particularly a pregnant woman, in order to try and steal a phone, is nothing short of disgusting.

“The victims would also like to thank the prosecution for the sensitive way they were helped through the court process.

“We will always support victims of crime in a sensitive and compassionate way, ensuring they are able to come forward and see the perpetrators brought to justice.”
