Ex-Royal Marine Commando, jailed for knifepoint robbery at bus stop

A FORMER Royal Marine Commando who robbed a man at knifepoint at a Bradford bus stop has been jailed for four years.

Darren Storey, 35, was also sentenced for his part in a street brawl in Leeds city centre during which he hurled a road barrier at one of his victims.

Prosecutor Alisha Kaye told Bradford Crown Court that at 6.20am on December 15 last year, Storey approached Joshua Taylor as he waited for a bus on Reevylands Drive in Wibsey.

Storey, who had a kitchen knife in his hand, ran at his victim, causing him to fall backwards. He took Mr Taylor’s work bag, which included boots, ear protectors, and Blu-ray speakers, and was found guilty of robbery after a trial.


In a victim statement, Mr Taylor said the incident left him suffering from anxiety and unable to take his daughter to nursery as he was afraid to go outside.

Miss Kaye said that less than two weeks before the robbery, on December 2, Storey had been out drinking with friends in Leeds.

At around 6am, he was seen on CCTV in a fight involving two groups of men in Briggate. During the altercation, Storey was said to have run towards one man and delivered a “flying kick” that knocked him to the ground.

He then chased another man, repeatedly aiming a “barrage of punches” and kicks at him, despite the man not retaliating and “trying to diffuse the situation”.
