A MAN has been jailed for three years and four months for assaulting a man in an unprovoked attack in Ormskirk town centre.

Billy Swindells, 20, of Cherrycroft, Skelmersdale, received the custodial sentence today (Monday 18 November) at Liverpool Crown Court after previously pleading guilty to section 18 wounding.

He assaulted a 23-year-old man, who was unknown to him, on Wigan Road at 2.30am on 13 March 2013. He kicked the victim to the head repeatedly, causing two fractured cheekbones, a broken nose and severe bruising.

DC Colin Filby said: “This was a violent attack which resulted in the victim being hospitalised and requiring an operation.

“I am pleased with the sentence given which reflects the severity of the incident.

“We will simply not tolerate violence and will continue to seek to put those responsible for such acts before the courts.”
