Yusuf bravely chokeslams the thief to the ground and makes a citizen’s arrest
Webb, whose address was withheld by a court order, admitted equipped for theft and assault with intent to resist arrest at Bristol Crown Court.
Nicholas O’Brien, prosecuting, said it was 7.10am on November 12 last year when Webb entered Mr Nabil’s Honda car in Easton and stole the stereo.
Mr O’Brien said: “Mr Nabil looked at his security camera.
“He could see the defendant and he decided to go on watching.
“The defendant went onto the drive and into the Honda.
“The defendant was wearing a black jacket with the hood up.
“Mr Nabil left his house and asked him ‘What are you doing?’
“The defendant said ‘I’m not doing anything’.”
The court was played the footage showing the moment Webb was nabbed.
When he was arrested Webb told cops he had been looking for something to eat.
Leanne Woodman, defending, said: “When he watched the CCTV he couldn’t believe it was him.
Messed with the wrong guy…Webb was handed a suspended sentence by a judge who said she had ‘no sympathy’
“He said: ‘For what I’ve done, I’m not really good with words, but I’m ashamed of myself’.”
Recorder Jo Martin handed him a 12-week suspended prison sentence.
She told Webb: “When Mr Nabil confronted you, you had a screwdriver in your hand and you threatened him.
“It is of huge relief to everybody that you didn’t make good that threat to him.
“You ultimately came off worse. You’ll forgive me If I don’t express sympathy.
“Actions have consequences.”
Webb was ordered to have rehabilitation and pay £100 compensation.
