One of the victims, a man in his 20s, sustained a fractured cheek bone, a black eye and broken nose and went to hospital for treatment.

Boswell and Clark were arrested and subsequently charged.

The following sentences were handed out in court:

  • Charlie Clark (left) was found guilty of s.20 GBH and attempted s.18 GBH. He was sentenced to a total of three years imprisonment.
  • Luke Boswell (right) was found guilty of s.20 GBH and affray. He was sentenced to a 12 month detention training order.  
  • Another individual, Charlie Moore, appeared in court charged s.18 GBH with intent with but was found not guilty.

Investigating officer DC Helen Simon said, “This result finally delivers justice for the victims, one who suffered significant injuries but has thankfully now made a full recovery.

These were unprovoked and unnecessary attacks clearly catalysed through alcohol and there is no excuse for the behaviour of these men.

Surrey Police deals with incidents of this nature extremely seriously and a thorough investigation led to this conviction.”
