Jail for thug who bit off ear then spat it out
A THUG who bit off the ear of his sister’s boyfriend in a “barbaric piece of violence” was jailed for 11 years yesterday.
John Gregory, 29, ripped off the top part of Shahzad Qureshi’s left ear before spitting it on the ground.
Mr Qureshi endured immense pain and needed plastic surgery on the permanent disfigurement, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.
The IT consultant was also forced to take two months off work and had to endure the taunts of colleagues and friends.
Gregory, of Romford, Essex, was convicted of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and theft.
Gregory had stormed into his sister’s flat in Barking, Essex, where he began raining blows on Qureshi.
Gregory then tried to throw him down the stairs and through a window, before smashing his head against a wall.
“The next thing I remember is him leaning over and he ripped my ear off with his teeth.” said Qureshi.
“Then he just casually walked off with his back to me then spat the ear out on the floor.”
Passing sentence Judge Murray Shanks described the attack as “a shocking and barbaric piece of violence”. NOW here’s something you won’t see in The Woolpack – babe Natalie Anderson’s beautiful boob!
The foxy actress who plays jailbird Alicia Gallagher in the ITV1 soap flashed nearly all of her pert right breast outside London’s posh Grosvenor Hotel while wearing a sexy low-cut dress.
The Bradford babe, 31, was at the swanky joint for the Pride Of Britain Awards.
