A man who forced a group of people to “run for their lives” after pulling a gun on them is due to be sentenced today.
Jacques Kiwele, 24, of Waterloo Road, Norwich, was told to expect a substantial prison sentence in September after pleading guilty to a string of offences.
On February 9, a group of friends were walking home close to Anglia Square when they were approached by a man who pulled out a gun and assaulted two of them.
