CORNWALL – A Cornwall man who robbed an east-end store at knife point this summer while wearing a disguise has been sentenced to two-and-a-half years in jail.

Judge Gilles Renaud sentenced Bradley Mondoux, 23, this month to 32 months in jail on the most serious charge of armed robbery with a knife.

Mondoux received two months credit for pre-trial custody.

He was also given concurrent sentences of a year for wearing a mask while committing a robbery, 18 months for assault with a weapon and 18 months for failing to keep the peace.

The balance of the charges (three) were withdrawn by the Crown.

In addition, Mondoux has a lifetime weapons ban and has to submit a DNA sample.

A store on Second Street East in Cornwall was robbed on July 22, 2016 and several bystanders were threatened with a knife as the robbers made their getaway.

They were arrested a short while later when police spotted their vehicle.

A co-accused in the case – 43-year-old Shelley Champagne – will be in court Sept. 22, 2016 on charges of robbery with a weapon and possession of property obtained by crime.
