A 30-year-old man from Stevenage has been jailed for six years today after two “horrific attacks” on men outside pubs, which left them both with life-changing injuries.
Bryan Precious, who lived between addresses in Stevenage and Lincolnshire, was sentenced at St Albans Crown Court this morning for two grievous bodily harm offences.
On October 22, 2017, Precious assaulted a 22-year-old man outside the Drapers Arms pub in Stevenage High Street. During the attack the victim was punched and kicked, which resulted in him suffering a serious facial fracture.
Then, on March 23 this year, Precious attacked another man in the car park outside The Willows pub in Broadwater Crescent.
On this occasion Precious punched the Stevenage victim, who is in his 40s, so hard he was rendered unconscious and sustained life-changing injuries as a result.
Judge Michael Kay QC jailed Precious for two years for the first offence and a further four years for the second assault. He also passed an extended licence for one year.
Commenting on the case, investigating officer Detective Constable Neil Davies said: “These were both horrific attacks on men that the offender did not even really know. Both have suffered life-changing injuries as a result.
