Three of four people jailed last week for kidnapping and torturing a vulnerable 32-year-old man for four days are from Brixton.
All were sentenced at Inner London Crown Court after being found not guilty during in trial at the same court.
Poppy Wick, 23, of Lambert Road Brixton, was found guilty of false imprisonment, robbery and causing grievous bodily harm (GBH).
She was sentenced to five-and-a-half years for false imprisonment; two years for robbery; and three years for GBH. The sentences will run concurrently. She will serve half of the five-and-a-half years and serve the rest on licence.
Adam Jayne-Connell, 26, from the Isle of Wight, was found guilty of false imprisonment and was sentenced to four years imprisonment. He will serve half of his sentence and spend the rest on licence.
Sam Kay, 27 of Lambert Road Brixton, was found guilty and sentenced to five-and-a-half years for false imprisonment; two years for robbery and 18 months for actual bodily harm. The sentences will run concurrently; he will serve half of the five-and-a-half years in prison and spend the rest on licence.
Dane Wick, 21, of Lambert Road Brixton, was found guilty of false imprisonment and was given a suspended sentence, a 30-day rehabilitation order and a three-month curfew (between 7pm and 7am).
Luke Nibblett, 24, of Shroffold Road Bromley, was found not guilty.
The court heard that on 19 August 2013, at 9.40pm, officers in Lambeth received reports that a man was being held hostage and tortured at an address in Brixton.
Police went to the house and Poppy Wick answered the door. She claimed to be alone, but officers searched the property and found the victim sitting in a corner. He was surrounded by Jayne-Connell and Dane Wick. Kay – who was not present at the time – was arrested at a later date.
The victim, who was covered in cuts and bruises, was taken to hospital where he was treated for his injuries; he has since made a full recovery.
Lambeth CID launched an investigation and discovered that the victim, who is autistic and extremely vulnerable, had been held captive for four days. His mobile phone and bank card were stolen. His bank card was used at cash machines to withdraw money from his account.
All five were charged in November 2014.
Acting Detective Sergeant Loy Hartwell of Lambeth CID said: “This was a despicable crime against a vulnerable member of society.
“I am relieved that justice has been served in this case which is, in no small par,t down to the assistance and support of the victim who gave compelling evidence.”
