Three men were sentenced today at Carlisle Crown Court (7th November 2014) for grievous bodily harm (GBH).
On the 30th June 2014 at around 9pm police were called to a report that three men had entered a property on Scattergate Crescent, Appleby, and seriously assaulted a 35 year old man. He was punched and kicked, and part of his ear was bitten off.
DC Vicky Hughes, the officer in the case, said:
“These sentences show that we do not tolerate violence in Cumbria. This was a particularly serious offence, and I am pleased that justice has been served today. Cumbria is one of the safest places to live and work, and we work hard to keep it that way.
“I would encourage anyone who has been a victim of violence to report it to us so that we can investigate and take action.”
Anyone who would like to report an assault should call Cumbria Police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. In an emergency always dial 999.
