Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Two Derby people have been convicted of Affray after a ‘large fight’ broke out on a Derby street last year.

The incident happened on Stepping Close when a fight broke out between several men on the street at around 1.30pm in the afternoon of Thursday, 15th February 2018.

Nathan Minto, 26-years of Beaufort Street, appeared at Derby Crown Court on Monday 30th September where he pleaded guilty to affray.

He was sentenced to an 18 month suspended prison sentence where he must carry out 120 hours un-paid work and undertake a maximum of 15 days rehabilitation activity. He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £115

Earlier this year on Monday 11th March, a 16-year-old youth, who we are not able to name for legal reasons, also pleaded guilty to affray. He was issued with a 9-month rehabilitation order where he must carry out 30 hours un-paid work, instructed to live at an address on Burton Road under curfew and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £20.

PC Rachel Thomas, from the Derby City Centre Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I realise that it has taken some time, but we are pleased to have secured these convictions.

“The area was suffering from anti-social behaviour and we were working with officers from Derby City Council to resolve these issues.

“We were able to use CCTV to gather evidence in this case that was used to negate the versions given by the offenders and helped secure the prosecutions.

“The actions shows we will always work hard to resolve these issues for the law abiding residents.”
