An attacker who reportedly punched and kicked a man and stamped on his head while he was on the floor has been sentenced.
Jack Brudenell, 26, carried out the attack in Chesterfield Road South, Mansfield, on 29 August 2019.
The victim suffered cuts and grazes to his head and grazing to his knee and hand.
When he was initially interviewed by police Brudenell claimed he only punched the victim once to the face in an act of self-defence.
He denied punching, kicking or stamping on him while he was on the floor.
Brudenell was given an 18-month prison sentence, suspended for 18 months, and must carry out 200 hours’ unpaid work. He was also ordered to pay £500 compensation.
Police Constable Andrew Keightley, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “The force treats all reports of assault and violence seriously and investigates reports.
“We will take robust action against those involved in this type of disorder and work hard to bring them before the court to answer for their crimes.”
