A serial street robber has been found guilty of mugging a student and a schoolboy at knifepoint.

Ismail Mohammed Iqbal committed the offences within three weeks of being released from jail for similar offences.

He was convicted yesterday, by 10-to-two majority verdicts, of both robberies.

The 23-year-old was on licence at the time from a six-year jail sentence imposed in May 2008.

The earlier offences, a robbery and three attempted robberies – all with knives – involved two fleeing victims being stabbed in the back by Iqbal, in January 2007.
