A 20 year old man of Lines Road, Lane End, Buckinghamshire has been convicted of Section 20 GBH after being found guilty at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday 11th March 2016.
The man was sentenced at the same court hearing to 12 months’ imprisonment, suspended for two years.
He was also sentenced to undertake a Thinking Skills programme, to 35 days’ rehabilitation activity, given a curfew from 10.00pm – 6.00am for four months and ordered to pay £1,000 victim compensation.
The conviction follows an incident that occurred at around 2.00am on the morning of Sunday 10th May 2015 when a 21 year old man, who was in the High Street in Marlow using the cash machine, began speaking to the now convicted man, who he did not know. During this conversation the now convicted man became angry and punched the victim in the face.
The victim sustained a significant laceration to his lip and required corrective surgery.
The assailant was arrested on Friday 12th June 2015 and charged on Sunday 23rd August 2015.
PC Daniel Crickmore from Force CID in High Wyomcbe said: ‘I am pleased to hear that further to my investigation and case preparation, the suspect in this case has been convicted of causing injury to the victim further to an unprovoked attack fuelled by alcohol.
This conviction is a direct result of TVP investigation and is a clear message that violence, in particular to those resulting in injury and related to alcohol is not tolerated and will be investigated holding such perpetrators to account for their actions.‘
