03/08/2012

A 24-year-old man has been jailed for a total of seven years and four months for assaulting a teenager with a metal pole in High Wycombe.

Tyrone Mouland, aged 24, of Shaftesbury Street, High Wycombe, was found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm with intent at Aylesbury Crown Court on Thursday, 02 August 2012.

Mouland approached his 16-year-old victim and his friend as they walked along Shaftesbury Street, High Wycombe, at around 7pm on 26 November last year. He punched the victim in the face and hit him over the head several times with a metal pole, leaving him with multiple fractures to his jaw and a fractured eye socket, which were treated at the JR2 Hospital in Oxford.

After the incident, the victim and his friend told police that they had been chased by a dog when they asked its female owner to get it under control. They explained how it sparked the incident in which the young teenager was then assaulted.

A 27-year-old woman from High Wycombe is due to appear before High Wycombe Magistrates' Court on Thursday, 09 August 2012, charged with being in possession of an illegal breed of dog and allowing it to be dangerously out of control.
