CCTV of Gideon Yobo car jacking

Two robbers who attacked Everton FC defender Joseph Yobo’s brother with a baseball bat and stole his £100,000 luxury Mercedes have been jailed. Gary Burden, 24, and Michael Harry, 22, carried out a “targeted attack” against Gideon Yobo when he pulled in to get cash at Barclay’s on Church Road South in Woolton.

The pair were sentenced by Judge Nigel Gilmore QC at Liverpool Crown Court. Henry Riding, prosecuting, said Mr Yobo had been on his way to Manchester Airport to pick up his Nigerian international brother Joseph, who is currently on loan to Turkish side Fenerbahçe, on July 22 2010.

At around 7.45am he stopped at the ATM and withdrew £1,500. The last thing he remembers was walking back to the parked ML55 AMG 6.3litre 4×4 vehicle before coming round on the road “considerably dazed and confused”. He had been hit in the face with a baseball bat by Burden, of Totnes Avenue, Halewood. Both he and Harry, of Dunacre Street, Halewood, wore balaclavas as they launched their carjacking.

Mr Yobo was helped at the scene by a young paperboy and his friend who were commended in court by the judge for their “admirable and public-spirited” actions.

Mr Yobo was taken to hospital for treatment and spent a week on the wards.
