A ‘feral’ teenage woman has been jailed for nearly three years after attacking takeaway delivery drivers and stealing the food.

Tamika Rosser, 18, ordered takeaway food on the phone then ‘trapped’ the delivery drivers with two accomplices to steal food in the Penlan area of Swansea.

Rosser, Jack Delaney, 19, and Adrian O’Neil, 20, chased their first victim back to his car armed with metal bars after a ‘tug of war’ over a pizza.

Swansea Crown Court heard Rosser rang a branch of Domino’s Pizz calling herself ‘Jade’ and ordered food.

Rosser, Delaney and O’Neil then met the driver in the foyer of their block of flats.

The group tried to snatch bag of food from the delivery man but, after a brief tug of war, he retreated back to his car – still holding the pizzas.

The trio hit the driver in the knee with the metal bar before grabbing the food and taking it back to their flat.

Later that night, the group then called another pizza company and met the delivery driver armed with knives.

After a scuffle in their block of flats, the driver escaped before returning armed with a wheel brace – striking O’Neil several times.

Swansea Crown Court heard the violent trio then attacked a taxi driver, grabbing him around the throat and ‘squeezing tightly’.

Rosser, of Swansea, pleaded guilty to robbery, criminal damage, affray, possessing a bladed article and making threats to kill.

Delaney, and O’Neil, also of Swansea, pleaded guilty to robbery and attempted robbery. O’Neil also pleaded guilty to criminal damage.

Judge Geraint Walters described the trio as ‘feral’ youngsters and jailed them for a total of nine years and four months.

He said: ‘The three of you have no respect for anything or anybody – not even yourselves.

‘Each of you had troubled upbringings but that cannot continue to be used as an excuse for serious anti-social behaviour.’

Rosser and Delaney were both jailed for two years and eight months while O’Neil was sentenced to four years behind bars.
