Two Midland women have been arrested after they robbed a man at knifepoint, held him hostage and then forced him to twerk to a gangster rap song.

28-year-old Ana Khan and Tanieka Higgins, 25, were in the home of Christopher Pugh, who was wearing a Pokemon onesie at the time. The following 90 minutes got pretty weird for Pugh, who was forced to dance and twerk while one of the girls filmed it.
The court heard how Pugh managed to eventually escape by climbing out of a window. As a result of their weird and cruel treatment of Pugh, Khan and Higgins both received a three year sentence. Judge Jeremy Lea said:
He was, in effect, falsely imprisoned and this was really cruel, bullying behaviour.
He was humiliated, he was made a figure of fun for your own amusement and then you filmed him.
Knives were produced by both of you, not just once, but on a number of occasions. His ordeal lasted for about an hour-and-a-half.
It only came to an end, in that he was so frightened he managed to escape through a window.
You are not young teenagers. You are mature women in your twenties and it is shocking to see you do this sort of thing.
Prosecutor James Armstrong-Holmes added:
He was frightened and feared he was going to be stabbed.
They both grabbed his wallet from his jacket, took £40, his house keys, headphones, a pouch of tobacco and a lighter.
After he was kept in the room, both women went with him to his room and stole a Pokemon toy and a duck-shaped soap-on-a-rope. He was taken back to Khan’s room, where they demanded he dance to gangster music.
They ordered him to twerk and ordered him to dance or ‘this is going into you’ [the knife].
What a cruel and unusual way to treat a victim. I know it’s wrong, but I can’t help but find it slightly amusing that they managed to get a fully-grown man to twerk in a Pokemon onesie. Poor guy though – he must’ve been humiliated, especially if they showed the video in court.
That’s some harsh bullying right there. Maybe they should unleash this savage mother on the pair. She’d make them learn their lesson.
