Teens guilty of brutal attack in Shoreham

The Argus: A still from CCTV showing the brutal attack on the 18-year-old in Buckingham Road, Shoreham A still from CCTV showing the brutal attack on the 18-year-old in Buckingham Road, Shoreham

An 18-year-old was punched, kicked, kneed and head-butted around 100 times in just two minutes in a shocking street attack.

The teenager, who asked to remain anonymous, was attacked as he walked along Buckingham Road, Shoreham, on October 17 last year.

He had his mobile taken and suffered facial injuries.

Now David Ayres, 19, of Farm Way, Southwick; David Shaw, 19, of Fishbourne Road East, Chichester; Lewis Berry, 20, of Test Road, Sompting, and a 17-year-old from Shoreham who cannot be named for legal reason have been convicted of attempted grievous bodily harm.

Admits robbery

Appearing at Brighton Crown Court, Shaw also admitted robbery.

Ayres was jailed for six years, Shaw was given five years, Berry was sentenced to four years and six months and the youth was given 32 months.

The victim said: “The sentences they received are better than I expected.”

Detective Constable Jonathan Stadius said: “This was a really nasty, unprovoked and vicious attack by these four people on one person.

“The victim was lucky to escape with no lasting physical injuries as the intent to cause him serious harm was evident.”

Sort of reminds me when i got jumped in a drunken attack that was unprovoked by about 5 men in 2001. I didnt get robbed but was battered. My response was hit the weights and bulk up. And since nothing else has happened. I am nearly 17 stone and funnily enough no one wants a pop. These people are cowards and target weak people!!

A Rare but Positive sign of Justice being done, if only it could be repeated more often. Thoughts and respect to the victim for seeing this through to the end.
