Violent assault on our streets, after pub closing time, is on the rise. Alcohol induced bar fights can spark up at any moment but the effects can last a life time as was shown recently when a man was imprisoned for causing grievous bodily harm with one punch.
The one punch attack happened outside a pub at approx 10.50pm and unfortunately left another 41 year old man with catastrophic injuries leaving him with life changing brain damage.
The victim suffered a bleed on the brain as a result of hitting his head on some steps. According to Cheshire police, the assault was completely unprovoked and the victim fell to the floor after being punched once in the face. Paramedics took him to Hospital where he was in a critical condition before receiving treatment for a bleed on the brain. He was hospitalised for four months whilst recovering.
The attack has had not only a devastating effect on the man leaving him with severe memory loss but also on his family who now have to provide 24 hour care.
His partner said: “We are totally devastated. The brain injury Simon received as a result of this assault has changed Simon’s life and the rest of our lives forever.”
Violent assaults like these have a life changing impact on families who are often left to pick up the pieces.
