when there is use of force or intimidation then its robbery but only taking someone property without consent or permission then its theft

A basic Theft definition is found in section 1 of the Theft Act 1968 but is further broken down in sections 2 - 6

Robbery Definition - 8(1) of the Theft act 1968

so for a robbery... D has to have the actus reus of:
1)there has been an appropriation
2) this was of property
3) this property belonged to someone else
4) there was force or fear of force used to obtain this property

For a theft with an assault
1 2 and 3 are the same but
4) D committed an act that caused the victim to APPREHEND immediate unlawful force... so no ACTUAL force has to be used (eg..threats)

For the mens rea

For robbery
1) the act is dishonest
2) D had the intention to permanently deprive
3) intends to put any person in fear of force or to use force, in order to steal

For theft with assault
1 and 2 are the same
3) D had the intention to cause another to fear immediate unlawful force or being reckless as to doing so

Is that any clearer??

Force is not needed to commit burglary, read the statute I quoted above.

Sorry please excuse my lack of concentration. I meant robbery, no force is needed for robbery, so you are still wrong.

P v DPP 2012 clearly states that you cannot have a robbery without force

And yes I agree that B and R v DPP 2007 states that fear of force is enough... but did I not state this?? If I didnt.. I genuinely though I did... hang on

You dont need force for robbery to occur, it can be either actual force or putting any person in fear of force being used. So holding a gun to the cashier's head would potentially constitute robbery.

I'm so confused now... is it because I said about assault not having any actual force... I was just explaining assault I wasnt saying that that wasnt also included in robbery.... ??

Also no it's not... I admit that I should have put intend but it's still required as the mens rea.. if they didnt intend to put this person in fear of being then they dont have the mens rea or robbery?!?

Ma'am would be more accurate (why does everyone think I'm a man on this site?!)... and "seek to put any person in fear of force" is actus reus... but unless they also have the mens rea of actually intending to cause this fear of force or intending to use this force to steal... they cannot be guilty ...Attachment 811332

There... I added to steal on the end you happy now??
