Three men have been sentenced following a vicious assault in Nottingham City Centre.
Two of the men were jailed for a total of 31 months, while a third was handed a suspended sentence of 18 months.
Kiantae McLean, 19, from Wollaton, Nottingham was jailed for 21 months at Nottingham Crown Court on 15 July after admitting at a previous hearing charges of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH), possession of a bladed article and affray.
Emmanuel Murphy, 19, from Sherwood, Nottingham was also sentenced to 12 months in prison, while Joshua Powell, 23, from Basford, Nottingham was handed an 18-month sentence suspended for two years. Both had also pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm.
The assault happened in Nottingham City Centre on the evening of 9 September 2017.
The GBH charge relates to an incident where the three men repeatedly stamped on a man’s head after picking an argument with a group of people in Milton Street, Nottingham.
The victim, a man in his 30s, suffered fractures to his face and severe swelling to his left eye.
McLean’s charges of possession of a bladed article and affray relate to him threatening a neighbour in a separate incident in Farndale Drive in Bilborough on 30 October 2019.
DC Stephanie Clough: “We had been after McLean for some time for his role in the shocking and unprovoked attack in Nottingham City Centre. This was a cowardly and sustained attack that left the victim with very serious facial injuries and I was determined to catch those responsible.
“As investigating officer I am pleased that justice has finally been done and hope today’s sentencing will bring some degree of closure to the victim. I also think this case should serve as a warning to other young people about the serious consequences to being a perpetrator of violence.”
