Drug Dealer Jailed Over Brick Attack
A 43-year-old man has been jailed for four years after pleading guilty to a serious assault in Boscombe.
Donovan Joseph, of Boscombe, threw a brick at a man’s head along Hawkwood Road just after 3pm on 7 May 2011.
The victim, a 32-year-old local man, was left with a cut to the back of his head as a result of the attack and needed around 15 stitches.
Joseph was arrested during the afternoon of Saturday 7 May 2011 and was subsequently charged with grievous bodily harm.
He was convicted of the assault at Bournemouth Crown Court on Thursday 23rd February 2012 and remanded in custody.
He had also pleaded guilty to possession of class A drugs with intent to supply, possessing a class A drug, and burglary.
Joseph was sentenced at Bournemouth Crown Court on Thursday 12 April 2012.
The officer in the case, Detective Constable Paul Graham, of Bournemouth CID, said:
"Joseph’s actions were entirely inexcusable and the outcome of this despicable attack could have been much worse.
“I hope this sentence serves as a reminder that such dangerous behaviour will not be tolerated.”
