Jailed Sheffield robber is brother of killerÂ serving life for gangland shooting
A Sheffield manÂ jailed for threatening two teenagers with a knife during a street robbery is the brother of a killer serving life for shooting another teenager dead.
Meeshack Menzies, aged 23, ofÂ Braemore Road, Hillsborough, was jailed for six and a half years over a robbery in which he threatened a 16-year-old girl and her boyfriend,Â 17, with a knife.
He threatened the boy first and forced him to hand over his valuables before knockingÂ the girl to the ground and taking her necklace and bracelet during the robbery in Eastern Drive, Arbourthorne, in May.
The robber was jailed at Sheffield Crown Court after being found guilty of robbery, attempted robbery and possessing an offensive weapon.
Levan and threeÂ others also convicted of murder were members of the S3 gang operating in Burngreave and Pitsmoor at that time.
Nigel Junior Ramsey -Â known on the streets as 'The General' and whoÂ ran the younger members of the gang - ordered the killing while behindÂ bars for a stabbing.
It was a revenge attack planned after some S3 members blamed victim Tarek, of Castledine Gardens, Wincobank, for passing on information thatÂ led to the near-fatal stabbing of another S3 gang member.
Tarek, who was carrying a gun when he was killed, was shot outside Frenchie's barberÂ shop on Spital Street.
Ramsey used a smuggled mobile phone to arrange the killing from his prison cell and instructed his younger brother Denzil Ramsey,Â theirÂ next door neighbour, Levan and friend Michael Chattoo to carry out the hit.
They were jailed for a total of 110 years.
Nigel Ramsey was jailed for a minimum of 35 years; Chattoo, of Daniel Hill Street, Upperthorpe, was sentenced to a minimum of 30 years; Ramsey's brother Denzil got 25 years and Menzies must serve a minimum ofÂ 20 years behind bars. Â
