He threatened the victim, saying “if you don’t hand over your bike and phone, I will batter you.”

Cox rode the bike 100m round the corner before smashing the victim’s phone so he couldn’t be tracked.

Cox was arrested the next day, charged soon after and was remanded in custody until his sentencing.

On Wednesday (26 October) he was sentenced to three years and one month in Cardiff Crown Court.

He was also made subject to a 10-year restraining order.

DC Harri Andrews from South Wales Police said: “This was a cruel and unnecessary act of cowardice and violence upon a much-loved member of the community who has been relentlessly targeted by Cox.

“The victim remains upset and affected by the incident.

“Targeting vulnerable persons will not be tolerated at any level and will be prosecuted.”
