Male convicted of attempted robbery on Orchard park

On the morning of November 27, 2014, a local resident encountered Krzysztof Wojajczyk, 56, in Kings Hedges Road close to the junction with Chariot Way, Orchard Park, Cambridge. The victim had been walking to a nearby bus stop whilst talking on their mobile phone when Wojajczyk attempted to punch the victim and take the mobile phone from his hand.

Thankfully the victim was able to avoid the assault and get away still in possession of his valuables and quickly dialled 999. Wojajczyk didn’t make it very far, police officers were quickly on the scene and arrested him just 0.1 miles from where the crime had happened.

Wojajczyk was convicted at Cambridge Crown Court on Monday (June 29) of attempted robbery and sentenced to 18 months in prison which will be suspended for 18 months, 200 hours unpaid work, six months electronically monitored curfew and ordered to pay £500 compensation to the victim.
