Sale man faces prison for assault
10:00am Friday 26th October 2012 in News
A SALE man, who stamped on a party goer's head after knocking him unconscious, is facing prison at Manchester Crown Court.
Magistrates told 30-year-old Patrick Caldwell that his case was too serious for them to deal with.
Caldwell, of Chepstow Avenue, Sale, had pleaded guilty to assaulting Krishna Singh causing him bodily harm during a house party in Ordsall on July 25.
Prosecutor Tess Kenyon said Mr Singh had been getting himself a drink in the kitchen when he was attacked. He had no recollection who struck him.
But Caldwell told police he had thumped the victim a “good few times” and then stamped on him.
Mr Singh suffered a severely bruised left eye, swelling and a cut lip, the court heard.
Suzanne Ludlow, defending, claimed the victim had been armed with a fork and a screwdriver at the party.
Caldwell warned him about his behaviour towards women in the house and then lost his temper and assaulted him – "something he deeply regrets,” added Miss Ludlow.
Caldwell was granted bail to appear at the City’s crown court for sentence on November 20.
