THREE men have admitted carrying out a terrifying daylight robbery on a lone woman in Gospel Oak.
Duane Isaac, 25, Ashley Hutchison, 24 and Denzil Rochester pounced on the woman as she walked along Roderick Road on the fringes of Hampstead Heath on February 26 last year.
One of them approached her and demanded she hand over her bag. As she ran through a nearby garden gate the man caught up with her and uttered the chilling words "I have got a gun, I will kill you".
As she reached the front door to raise the alarm, she was grabbed by the ear and kicked. Another of the attackers then joined in and tried to pull her watch from her wrist. She screamed as the rings were pulled from her fingers. They sped off in a Honda Civic.

A witness noted down the registration and gave it to police who spotted the vehicle near Abbey Road. The robbers refused to stop and after a police chase through Paddington they crashed the Honda into a lamppost and fled on foot. With the help of a police helicopter and dog unit they were spotted hiding out in Paddington Rec. The victim's wrist watch and handbag were found nearby.
Isaac, of no fixed address, Hutchison of Marian Way NW10 and Rochester of Middlesex, will be sentenced at Blackfriars Crown Court.
