Adrian Henry and his accomplice Terry Haywood were part of a gang that robbed Omega Sauna in Kentish Town, in January 2009. The gang posed as customers before threatening staff and customers with hand gun and knife, forcing them to give up their belongings.
Adrian’s no stranger to crime as he was jailed in 1997, when he was 14 years old, for gang raping an Austrian woman and attempting to drown her.
Speaking of the parlour attack, prosecutor Neena Crinnion said
One of them jumped on to the counter brandishing a handgun, told the owner to stay down and asked where the money was. At the same time Mr Heywood produced a knife and asked members of staff working there to hand over their property.
The 29-year-old was caught hiding in the bushes by the scene of the crime, and the stolen good were later discovered.
Adrian will serve 11 years in jail before he can receive parole.
