A TEENAGER who carried out a series of street robberies has admitted his guilt and will be sentenced in May.

Oliver Khosravi, aged 18, appeared via a video link at Bolton Crown Court as well as a 15-year-old boy who was his accomplice in one of the crimes.

The pair were arrested following incidents on October 3 last year after police received reports of an assault on a 33-year-old man in Moor Lane, Bolton and then, later that day, a robbery in Northgate Close, Horwich, where a 28-year-old man was robbed, at knifepoint, of his bank card.

Khosravi, of Nuffield Close, Kearsley, pleaded guilty to robbery and possessing a knife in a pathway next to Chorley New Road Primary School, Horwich.

The 15-year-old, who was with him, also admitted robbery, assault and possessing a knife at Bolton bus station.

In addition to the robbery in October Khosravi admitted robbing a man of a mobile phone on New Year’s Day 2020 and robbing another man of a mobile phone on January 7 last year.

The court heard that Khosravi committed the first robbery just 10 days after his 17th birthday.

The case was adjourned for pre-sentence reports.

The Honorary Recorder of Bolton, Judge Martin Walsh remanded Khosravi and the boy in custody until their sentence hearing on May 14.
