Two sentenced after man attacked in his own home suffers broken leg

A frightened man was attacked in his own home before being chased and violently assaulted.

The victim, a man in his thirties, suffered a broken leg in the attack after he was falsely accused of stealing a mobile phone.

Jamie Ball, aged 44, and Kimberley Russon, aged 32, arrived outside the property in a bid to get the phone back, and soon turned violent.

The victim then fled the scene, in Talbot Road, Worksop, and took shelter in a nearby shop.

However, he was soon chased down by his attackers who continued to punch and kick him.

He suffered a broken arm, multiple bruises and grazing in the late night attack on 14 June 2019.

Ball and Russon later pleased guilty to causing grievous bodily harm without intent and were sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Wednesday (13 April 2022).

Ball, of Rushey Close, Worksop, was given an 18 month jail sentence suspended for two years. He was ordered to carry out 120 hours of unpaid work and pay compensation of £500.

Russon, of Church Walk, Worksop, was given a 12 month prison sentence suspended for two years, and was ordered to pay £1,000 in compensation.

Detective Sergeant Emma Dalton, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was an appalling display of unprovoked and inexcusable violence against a victim who had done absolutely nothing wrong.

“Ball and Russon arrived at the address intent on confrontation and were fortunate not to cause more serious injury to their victim.

“I am pleased they have now been dealt with by the courts and hope this case serves as an example to others.

“There is never a justification for violently attacking another person, and those who do so will be dealt with robustly by Nottinghamshire Police.”
