26/01/2015

Three defendants, with a total of 127 previous convictions between them, have today been sentenced to a total of 18 years three months at Grimsby Crown Court for a brutal attack on a man leaving him in fear for his life.

Kallam Evans, Charlie Cooke and Michael Smith were charged with s47 assault, aggravated burglary, burglary with intent to cause GBH and breaching an ASBO, after brutally attacking their victim as he was socialising with friends. 

Separately Evans was charged with assault on a PC, assault on a PCSO, possession of an offensive weapon and various driving offences in connection with another incident.

Crown Advocate Jeremy Evans, from CPS Yorkshire and Humberside said:

"Kallam Evans, Charlie Cooke and Michael Smith had been invited to join him to socialise.  At the house, they committed a violent, unprovoked assault on the victim, returning a short while later - to finish what they had started.

"Armed variously with a knife and a pick axe handle they viciously attacked the victim, who at the height of the attack feared for his life and, in desperation, reminded his attacker that he was a father.

"Evans, Cooke and Smith have now been sentenced collectively to over 18 years in prison, sending out a clear message that this type of mindless violence will not be tolerated in our society."
