A person is guilty of robbery if he steals, and immediately before or at the time of doing so, and in order to do so, he uses force on any person or puts or seeks to put any person in fear of being then and there subjected to force. In R v Robinson [7] the defendant threatened the victim with a knife in order to recover money which he was actually owed.

His conviction for robbery was quashed on the basis that Robinson had an honest, although unreasonable, belief under Section 2 1 a of the Act in his legal right to the money. In R v Hale [8] the application of force and the stealing took place in different locations, and it was not possible to establish the timing; it was held that the appropriation necessary to prove theft was a continuing act, and the jury could correctly convict of robbery; this approach was followed in R v Lockley [9] when the force was applied to a shopkeeper after property had been taken.

Force used after the theft is complete will not turn the theft into a robbery. The words "or immediately after" that appeared in section 23 1 b of the Larceny Act were deliberately omitted from section 8 1. This approach was confirmed in R v Clouden [15] and Corcoran v Anderton[16] both handbag-snatching cases.

Threat[ edit ] The victim must be placed in apprehension or fear that force would be used immediately before or at the time of the taking of the property. A threat is not immediate if the wrongdoer threatens to use force of violence some future time. Robbery occurs if an aggressor forcibly snatched a mobile phone or if they used a knife to make an implied threat of violence to the holder and then took the phone.

The person being threatened does not need to be the owner of the property. It is not necessary that the victim was actually frightened, but the defendant must have put or sought to put the victim or some other person in fear of immediate force.
