Jail threat for trio of thugs

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

THREE thugs who beat two men up in a city take­away have been told to ex­pect jail terms by a city judge.

Adam O’Neill (20), of Great Whyte, Ram­sey; Thomas Ray (19) of Sta­tion Road, War­boys, and David Tingey (20), of Mere­side Drove, Ram­sey, pleaded guilty to two counts of as­sault oc­ca­sion­ing ac­tual bod­ily harm at Peter­bor­ough Mag­is­trates’ Court yes­ter­day.

They were com­mit­ted to be sen­tenced at Peter­bor­ough Crown Court on a date to be con­firmed.

The court heard the three as­saulted two men at Per­fect Chicken take­away in Hereward Cross, Peter­bor­ough on March 7.

Af­ter watch­ing CCTV footage, Deputy District Judge Ken Gold­spring said: “This is one of the most ap­palling cases of as­sault I have seen. If I had pow­ers to sen­tence you would be look­ing at a con­sid­er­able jail term.”
