A brutal gang of five men have been jailed for life. After stabbing a man to death.
Brutal thugs jailed for life for murder of 26-year-old after drug party: The incident occurred just hours after they posted videos of the drug-fuelled party. After being found guilty of the murder of Solomon Robinson, 26, the five, Stefan Selvage, 19, Dawid Goral, 21, Callon Brass, 22, Kieran Watkinson, 19, and Stevie Low, 23, were ordered to serve a combined sentence of nearly 100 years.
The horrific murder took place in Scarborough, North Yorkshire in October 2019. The five men all grouped together for the attack before running from the scene. The court were told that hours before the attack a video was uploaded to social media. Showing knives and money. They were spotted on CCTV walking to the area where Robinson was attacked.
They were dressed the same as in the previous video. After the cowardly attack Robinson can be seen staggering then collapsing to the ground. The gang had fled by this point. The court heard how Robinson had an 11 inch stab wound and was rushed to hospital for emergency surgery.
Sadly he died just three hours later. Detective Superintendent Fran Naughton from North Yorkshire Police spoke after sentencing to say. “This was an appalling act of premeditated violence. And our thoughts remain with Mr Robinson’s family. As they attempt to come to terms with their devastating loss.
I would like to praise them for behaving with nothing but dignity, despite the court proceedings being very distressing at times. After carrying out the brutal attack, the group fled the scene. Their actions were cowardly and cold, and they have proven themselves to be dangerous individuals who have rightly been taken off our streets for a significant amount of time.”
She went on to say “I hope the outcome can offer Mr Robinson’s loved ones some comfort that justice has been served. I hope the sentence handed out sends a strong message to anyone who chooses to carry a knife. Just because you are not the one holding the weapon, it doesn’t make you any less responsible if damage is done because of it.”
