Polish man's jaw broken in unprovoked attack by three Shropshire men

Three Shropshire men set upon two Polish men in a late-night attack that was captured on CCTV. One of the victims was left unconscious and with a broken jaw, Mold Crown Court was told.


Judge Niclas Parry said Gary Scott, Steven Rayon and Christopher Johnson had been involved in an "alcohol-fuelled, mindless incident of town centre violence late at night which blights the town of Wrexham".

He added: "People in Wrexham are totally fed up of it and look to the courts for protection." Scott, 25, of Woolston Bank, Oswestry, admitted assault and affray and was jailed for 18 months.

Rayon, 23, of Church Lane, Ellesmere, admitted assault and wounding and received a 16-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months. He was tagged to remain indoors for three months between 6.30pm and 6am and ordered to pay total compensation of £950.

Johnson, 24, of Laburnum Drive, Oswestry, admitted affray and received an eight-month prison sentence suspended for 18 months. He also received the same curfew and was ordered to pay £750 costs.

Prosecuting barrister Matthew Dunford said that the two victims had been on a night out and were approached in the early hours in what was an unprovoked attack.

He played CCTV footage of the incident to the court and said one of the victims needed surgery for a fractured jaw.
