A 23-year-old Stevenage man has been handed a fine after a violent assault in the Old Town in which he punched a victim twice.

Edward Webb, of Archer Road, was charged with assault by beating and theft following the assault – which took place in the High Street near the Drapers Arms pub at 3.15am on Saturday.

Webb appeared on Monday at Hatfield Remand Court, where magistrates ordered no compensation because “there were no injuries and there was some provocation”.

Chairman of the bench Kathryn Greenwood handed him a £200 fine, a £30 victim surcharge and £85 costs.
