He had earlier on pleaded guilty to four counts of robbery, which occurred between 3rd October and 13th October 2014.

Detective Constable Matt Mowbray, from Hackney Borough CID, said: “Brown’s actions have had lasting impact on his victims. His repeated attacks left other mini cab drivers in the area very fearful for their safety.
