Four men have been convicted of violent disorder and sentenced to two years imprisonment following a vicious attack in Weymouth last year.
Polish men Crzecorz Fal, 24, Mateusz Wazny, 22, and Arqr Wazny, 25, and 27-year-old Weymouth man Daniel Niemiec were found guilty at Bournemouth Crown Court last month following a trial that lasted almost three weeks.
On Wednesday 8 August 2012, Fal, Mateusz Wazny, Arqr Wazny and Niemiec were all sentenced to two years behind bars.
Late in the evening of Saturday 24 April 2011, the group attacked a man who was walking through the Wesley Street area near Weymouth town centre.
A member of the public came to the aid of the victim, only to be set upon himself by the group. He was punched and kicked by the offenders, and when his wife came out to help him, she was also attacked.
Even after the assaulted husband and wife returned to the safety of their home, a pane of glass was broken on their front door by the offenders.
Fortunately the three victims, all from Weymouth, were not seriously injured – they all sustained bruising and grazes.
Detective Constable Gerald Marchant, of Weymouth CID, said: “I am glad that these violent offenders have been brought to justice.
“These men viciously attacked innocent members of the public, including a woman who was only trying to assist her husband.
“These convictions are the culmination of a long and extensive investigation, which has resulted in an extremely satisfying result at court.”
