A MAN was punched, kicked and stamped upon by two strangers in a Rhyl street late at night.

The victim of the unprovoked attack was left in the street and his two attackers left, laughing as they went.

Defendants Perry Jones, aged 19, of Balmoral Grove in Rhyl, and Jordan Eccles, aged 18, of Eastville Avenue in Rhyl, pleaded guilty to unlawfully wounding Bradley Parry on November 6 last year and were each sentenced to two years youth custody.

Judge Philip Hughes, sitting at Mold Crown Court, told them: “You came across him late at night and you attacked him.

“You punched him, you kicked him and you stamped upon him.

“As a result he injured three or four teeth, he had black eyes and suffered bruising.”

Photographs produced in court demonstrated the extent of the injuries, he said.

“This was a sustained attack – an unprovoked attack on a stranger,” Judge Hughes told them.

“You left him in that condition and walked off, laughing.”

The aggravating features were the fact that they had previous convictions, it happened late at night in the street, they had taken drink and maybe drugs, and the judge added:

“This was a bullying, cowardly attack, two against one.”

The attack had left the victim nervous, he had suffered pain and he now faced a bill of up to £1,000 for dental treatment.
