The knifeman was described as having a distinctive ‘1991’ tattoo on his wrist and enquires led West Midlands Police to identify Layne as the likely suspect. He was arrested on March 27 back at the Grosvenor Road flat and later picked out during an ID parade.

Detectives also discovered Layne had punched a woman and held a knife to her face at a Handsworth address on February 22.

And in the early hours of April 2 bully Layne dragged a sex worker down an alleyway off Soho Road yelling “get off my road” before robbing her of just £1.90 in loose change.

Layne went on to admit wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, robbery and making threats with a knife – and at Birmingham Crown Court on Monday (Dec 2) was jailed for 12-and-a-half years.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Rich Marsh, said: “His victims were sex workers he was trying to control and make money from and he was prepared to use grotesque levels against these vulnerable women.

“Layne used the media to try and persuade people he was a victim and that police were unfairly targeting him. The truth is that he is a violent man linked to drugs and the exploitation of women.

“One of his victims has been left with permanently physical scars not to mention the psychological impact of the aggression and intimidation she suffered at Layne’s hands. I wish her well for the future and hope the prison sentence Layne has received will offer some comfort.”
