Man jailed over 'vicious' Woking attack

A man from West Byfleet has been jailed for three years over a 'vicious' attack in Woking last year which saw him stamp on another man's head. 

Fanica Asmarandei of Blenheim Close also repeatedly punched the man in Victoria Way outside Tattoo Land on 13 January 2019.

Officers were flagged down by a witness who reported that 55-year-old Asmarandei was attacking another man after they had an argument.

The 50-year-old victim was unconscious and not breathing when police arrived on the scene.

Officers performed CPR at the scene before he was taken to hospital but he did not sustain any serious injuries and was treated for bruising to his face.

Asmarandei was arrested at the scene and charged.

He was found guilty of assault attempting to cause grievous bodily harm.

Detective Constable Pete Coe, who investigated described the incident as a nasty and vicious assault:

"It quickly escalated into violence following an argument between the two men who were known to each other.

"It is a miracle that, despite losing consciousness and not breathing when officers arrived, the victim did not suffer any serious injuries or long-term effects.

“The fact that his attacker is now behind bars should send a clear message that we will not tolerate violence of any nature within our local communities and that we will always seek to bring to justice those who think they can behave in this way and get away with it.”
