Peterborough: Five Jailed After Attack

Five men have been jailed for a total of over 14 years for a serious assault at a bar in Peterborough.

Cambridgeshire Police say a 21 year old man suffered life-changing injuries in the attack back in May, and is continuing to receive care as a result.

The assault happened at Coco's Bar in Broadway in the early hours of May 21st, when there was an argument between a group of men and the 21 year old victim.

There was more disorder outside the bar, when the victim was assaulted along with a 50 year old man.

Both men were then taken to Peterborough City Hospital with serious injuries, with the 50 year old man released several days later.

However the 21 year old man was transferred to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge, and remains in care after suffering life-changing injuries.

The men had all previously guilty to their parts in the attack, and were sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court yesterday (Monday).

Deividas Matusevicius, 20, of Church Walk, Peterborough was jailed for a total of 10 years for two counts of causing grievous bodily harm and affray. 

Lukas Banys, 20, of Church Walk, Peterborough was jailed for two years for causing grievous bodily harm and affray. 

Sarunas Galinas, 19, of Church Walk, Peterborough was jailed for 10 months for assault occasioning actual bodily harm and affray. 

Ricardas Bartos, 23, of Church Walk, Peterborough was jailed for nine months for affray. 

Kestutis baranauskas, 21, of Church Walk, Peterborough was jailed for seven months for affray.

DC Mark Clapham said: "This was a violent and sustained attacked which has left a young man with serious injuries which he may never recover from.

The severity of the mindless violence displayed by the men involved in this incident is reflected in the sentences given."
