Sucker Punch Leaves Man In Coma!


Michael English has been locked up for assaulting the victim after asking for a light outside Gi-Gi’s takeaway on Linthorpe Road. The victim told the court how the attack in the early hours of July 9, 2016 – which he can’t remember – had ruined his life. English approached the man and asked for a light outside the pizza shop at about 2.15am on the morning of the incident. CCTV footage shows the men standing “almost nose to nose” before English punches the older man. As the victim tries to stand up straight, the defendant then strikes him again.”
