A man has been sent to prison following an assault on doorstaff working at a Lincoln city venue.
Officers received a report that a member of doorstaff working at a venue in High Street, Lincoln, had been approached by a man who threw two punches and was verbally abusive before leaving the area. The victim, who is in his 30s, reported that he suffered hearing loss for several hours following the incident.
The incident took place at around 8.50pm on Friday 6 July.
Following investigation which has included working with the City of Lincoln Council’s CCTV team, Mohamed El-Haddad, 25, of Boundary Street, Lincoln, was arrested by officers from Response and the local Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) in connection with the offence yesterday morning (Wednesday 12 July).
He was then charged with common assault and remanded into custody to appear at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court today, where he pleaded guilty to the assault.
As a result, a seven week suspended sentence for prior offences was revoked and he was sent to prison to serve that term, and he was sentenced to seven days custodial time to run concurrently for the common assault.
