His getaway driver Stewart, 18, of Church Vale, Handsworth, Birmingham, was jailed for four years after admitting the same charge.
The pair first attempted to rob a security guard outside a TK Maxx, in Walsall, West Midlands, was on February 21 last year.
Body-cam footage shows masked Treleven shoulder-barging the victim over as he was walking back to his van.
The guard refused to let go of his cash box during the struggle and a member of the public rushed to his aid to help fight the thug off.
Treleven fled in a stolen Ford S-Max driven by Stewart before the pair struck three days later at a Toby Carvery in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands.
The guard had just made a collection from the pub when he felt Treleven grab him from behind and haul him to the ground.
He held on to his cash box and managed to punch Treleven in the face who shouted at him: ‘Drop the box.’
When the victim refused, Treleven ran to the car and yelled at driver Stewart: ‘Run him over. Run him over.’

Stewart was caught on camera driving at the victim, who jammed backwards on to the van’s safety ledge before the car hit the van and ploughed into his leg.
They sped off as the guard used the cash box to hit out at the car.
West Midlands Police pieced together the movements of the pair using CCTV and mobile phone data and the pair were later arrested.
After the pair were arrested, the court heard Stewart was under the control of Treleven, and was just 17 at the time of the crimes.

Detective Sergeant Tom Frenchum, from the Force Priorities Team, said: ‘This was an appalling series of attempted robberies which left the victims in real fear for their lives.
‘You can clearly see that as each attempt failed, they were becoming more and more desperate and so were resorting to increasing levels of violence.
‘People working in the cash transport industry do a really important job and should be able to go about their work without being attacked, and these sentences reflect that.’
