Two men appeared at Amersham Crown Court yesterday, Monday, 22 December 2014, and were jailed for attacking a man outside a pub in Bletchley, Milton Keynes, in May.

Ryan Boon, aged 22, of Cleeve Crescent, Bletchley, was sentenced to nine years imprisonment having previously pleaded guilty to wounding with intent and possession of an offensive weapon.

Charlie Righelato, aged 20, of Rydal Way, Bletchley, was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years imprisonment after being found guilty by a jury of wounding with intent, racially aggravated assault and possession of an offensive weapon.

On 21 May this year, Boon and Righelato went into a pub in Serpentine Court and racially abused a 23-year-old man.  When the victim and his friends left the pub the pair accosted him again. They then chased him and his friends.

When the victim became separated from his friends, he was attacked by Boon and Righelato, who were both carrying a knife.  During the attack, the victim sustained three deep slash wounds, one to his arm and two to his thigh. The wounds required a large number of stitches and the victim still suffers walking difficulties.
