A man has been jailed after attacking another man with two beer bottles on a violent attack.

John Kemp, 34, has been jailed for three-and-a-half years at Nottingham Crown Court on January 24, 2022,

The assault was carried out using two full bottles of beer onto another man at a house in Mansfield on March 30, 2021.

Kemp threw the first bottle at his victim, smashing on impact with his arm and causing a laceration that required stitches.

He then struck his victim with the second bottle twice over the head, causing a further deep cut as it also shattered.

Sergeant Sharon Powar, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was violent assault that caused significant injuries to the victim.

Glass bottles can make extremely dangerous weapons and it was only a matter of good fortune that more serious injuries were avoided.

“Kemp gave no thought at all to the potential consequences of his actions as he used these potentially lethal weapons to strike out at this victim and I am pleased he has now been brought to justice.”

The incident occurred when Mr Kemp followed him to the bathroom, following an initial argument with his victim in the living room.

Kemp was arrested later in Mansfield Market Square and eventually pleaded guilty to a charge or wounding with intent.

Apart from the jailing, he was also handed a restraining order that will prevent him contacting his victim for the next ten years.
