Bideford carjacker's sentence delayed due to illness
The sentencing of a former supermarket worker who has admitted a carjacking attack in Bideford has been delayed because he is ill.
Brett Baker has been given a final chance to attend a meeting with probation officers to prepare a pre sentence report after claiming too unwell to make the original appointment.
He has admitted an attack on a fellow worker from Morrison’s in Bideford in which he allegedly set on him while being given a lift home.
The victim leapt out of his car to escape and Baker then drove away in it, taking it to his family home near Woking, Surrey.

The alarm was raised when the bloodstained victim, still wearing his Morrison’s uniform, flagged down two passers-by and asked them to call the police.
Judge Francis Gilbert, QC, adjourned a sentencing hearing which had been due to take place on Friday.
He said medical evidence should be provided to support his claim that he was suffering from Crohn’s Disease and unable to attend his probation meeting.
The judge warned Baker that a similar failure to comply with bail conditions could result in a remand in custody.
Baker, 26, of Clovelly Road, Bideford, who is currently living in Surrey, admitted assault causing actual bodily harm and taking a car without consent.
