Party thugs beat man after noise row

Two thugs who beat a man with a baseball bat and a belt when he complained about being kept up all night by noisy revellers have been spared jail.

Robert Mady, 40, of Clements Road, East Ham, and Roman Coirun, 30, battered Stefan Jones around the head and wrist as he cowered on the ground, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.

Mr Jones, who had an operation to remove his appendix the previous day, escaped serious injuries.

He was chased down the road by the men and set upon after he tripped over.

He was hit three times on the back of his head and wrist by Coirun who had picked up the baseball bat and then hit by Mady who used his belt as a weapon.

Last week, Judge William Kennedy said: “It is very disappointing when guests in this country commit very serious offences.

“Simple common courtesy dictates that a party should not inconvenience people who live next door.

“These bats can cause very serious injury and in some cases kill.”

Coirun, of Southbourne Gardens, Ilford, admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm. He was sentenced to seven months in prison, suspended for 12 months.

Mady, admitted assault by battery and was ordered to carry out 75 hours’ unpaid work.

Both men must abide by an electronically monitored curfew for two months from 10pm-6am and are banned from pubs, clubs and bars for three months.

They were also ordered to pay a total of �400 compensation to Mr Jones and to contribute �400 costs.
