ROBBERS left a footprint on their victim’s face before using his stolen bank card to buy fast food and a pregnancy test.

Scientific evidence matched the injuries on the robbery victim's face to one of the robber's trainers.

Daniel Lloyd and Kyron Gee both appeared together at Worcester Crown Court over the videolink from HMP Hewell.

Kyron Gee, aged 23, of Glenthorne Avenue, Rainbow Hill, Worcester and Lloyd, aged 21, of Duke of Edinburgh Way, Malvern admitted the robbery on May 21 during which they stole an iPhone 6, a wallet and Santander bank card. In total Gee admitted five frauds using the stolen bank card and Lloyd three frauds.

Both men used the card to carry out two frauds by false representation at McDonald’s the same day in the early hours of the morning. Gee admitted two further frauds at Sainsbury’s while Lloyd carried out one fraud at Sainsbury's. Gee carried out a further fraud at Giffgaff.

The men were warned they faced a jail sentence.

Ian Ball, prosecuting, said: “We would like to get a proper victim personal statement from the complainant and perhaps some further medical evidence as to the extent of the complainant’s facial injuries.”

He said there was scientific evidence that the injuries to the robbery victim’s face had been matched to Gee’s trainers.

Both Judith Kenney, for Lloyd, and Jason Aris, for Gee, asked the case to be adjourned for pre-sentence reports. Both defendants were already known to the probation service who prepare the reports. Miss Kenney said an adjournment would allow her to visit her client in HMP Hewell and confirmed it was Lloyd who had bought a pregnancy test kit as part of the fraud.

The case was adjourned until July 22 when both men are scheduled to be sentenced.

Judge Robert Juckes QC told the men that the adjournment, on Monday, for a pre-sentence report was not an indication of a non-custodial sentence and told them ‘offences of this kind normally result in an immediate custodial sentence.’
