Two men were sentenced at Hull Crown Court recently after they pleaded guilty to the theft of a motorcycle and failing to stop for the police, as they irresponsibly sped through the streets of Hull on 5 June 2023.
The pair were spotted by police after a motorbike had been stolen in Willerby, leaving the owner with a broken leg and injured at the roadside.
The men, Dawid Kajzer and Sonnie Stow, were two-up on the motorcycle, riding recklessly on footpaths and the wrong way on roads at excessive speeds, causing a danger to pedestrians and other roads users.
The motorbike was tactically brought to a halt, and a police dog was deployed to stop Sonnie Stow as he fled, and the pair were arrested at the scene.
Sonnie Stow, 24-years-old, of Lambert Street, Hull was sentenced to four and a half years and was banned from driving for three years and three months.
Dawid Kajzer, 18 years old, of Lingcourt in Hull, was sent to a young offenders’ institution for six years and was banned from driving for four years.
Kajzer was also identified, through DNA, as being involved in a ram raid on Bargain Booze in Cottingham in April 2023 where £15,000 worth of stock was stolen and £20,000 damage was caused to the premises.
Speaking after sentencing is the Officer in the Case (OIC) PC Hailstone, he said, “It’s by pure luck that members of the public and road users were not harmed in this reckless act.
“Both Stow and Kajzer have had previous convictions for similar offences, and it is now hoped that with them behind bars again we have made the streets of Hull safer for everyone.
“We remain committed to working with our communities to tackle motorcycle related crime and our Operation Yellowfin continues to bring information and intelligence in to bring offenders to justice.
“I am pleased with these sentences as it shows a clear message to our communities that we can and will stop people riding recklessly on our streets.”
