Man jailed following serious assault - Slough

03/03/2014

A man appeared at Reading Crown Court on Friday, 28 February 2014, and was jailed for a total of five years nine months following a serious assault in Slough, which left one person in a coma.

Marek Kulas, aged 22, of Church Street, Upton, Slough, was sentenced after pleading guilty at an earlier hearing on 27 January to one count of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent and one count of assault by beating.  He was sentenced to five years six months for the GBH with intent and three months for the assault.

During the early hours of 05 October last year, Kulas became involved in a verbal altercation with another 22-year-old man in Slough High Street.  Kulas then chased the man, from Slough, who fell to the ground.  While he was lying on the floor, Kulas kicked the victim in the head causing him life-threatening injuries.

The victim was initially admitted to Wexham Park Hospital, but was later transferred to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford having suffered a bleed on the brain.

During the incident, Kulas assaulted the victim's friend, aged 28, from Slough, by kicking him in the legs.

The serious assault was captured on CCTV, which ultimately assisted in Kulas being arrested, charged, and convicted.
