Four jailed after man beaten up outside Nottingham bar

Four people have sentenced after a man was let with serious facial injuries following an assault in Nottingham city centre.

The victim was standing outside a bar in Broadway, Nottingham, when a group of men began fighting in the early hours of Sunday, 22 August 2021.

Despite playing no part in the violence, the victim, who filmed some of the fracas on his phone, was punched to the floor before he was repeatedly kicked and stamped upon.

He later required surgery to fix two fractures to his jaw.

His attackers, Jahvan Newland-Redmond, Curtis Brooks, and Owen Gallagher, were identified from CCTV footage and arrested.

Another man, Raheem Gordon, was also identified for playing a part in the incident along with Brooks and Gallagher.

All four appeared at Nottingham Crown Court for sentencing on Tuesday.

Gallagher, aged 32, of  St Ann’s, and Brooks, aged 28, of St Ann’s, both pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent and affray, and were jailed for three years and two years and nine months respectively.

Newland-Redmond, aged 26, of HMP Nottingham, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent and was jailed for one year and nine months. He was also given an additional 18-month sentence for unrelated offences.

Gordon, of Nottingham, pleaded guilty to affray and was jailed for nine months.

Detective Constable Parminder Ahluwalia, of Nottinghamshire Police, said:

“This was an appalling display of violence that has absolutely no place in our night-time economy. The victim in this case was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when he was brutally set upon by these men.

“He stood no chance of defending himself against the onslaught of blows that followed, and unsurprisingly suffered a serious injury as a result. As his attackers begin significant prison sentences, he must continue to live with the physical and emotional impact of what happened to him that night.

“I hope these sentences provide him with at least some comfort, and also serve as a warning to others about the potential consequences of this kind of violence. Incidents like this often start and finish very quickly, but can have life-long consequences for everybody involved.”
