Armed dog mess mugger is jailed

`A knife-wielding mugger who robbed a woman of her bags before discovering they were full of dog mess has been jailed for four years.

David Carlisle, 32, forced 52-year-old Marion Budd to hand over the bags at knifepoint last July as she walked her dog in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol.

When he realised what he had taken, Carlisle, a drug addict and father-of -four, fled the scene empty-handed.

The bungling would-be thief was jailed after admitting attempted robbery.’
