Man sentenced for assault in Tickhill
A Doncaster man has been handed a nine-month suspended sentence and community service after pleading guilty to assault.
Mitchell Rose, 27, of the Balby area of Doncaster, was sentenced at Sheffield Crown Court on 29 June. He received a nine-month suspended sentence and was ordered to perform 180 unpaid hours of community service. He was also ordered to complete a 20-day rehabilitation order through probation and was handed a restraining order by the judge.
The court heard how on 2 May at around 1am, police were called to reports of a disturbance at an address in Tickhill, Sheffield. Two people, a 26-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man, had reportedly been assaulted. The woman required medical treatment for a fractured cheek bone.
Rose was arrested and later charged. He later pleaded guilty and was convicted of two assaults occasioning actual bodily harm (Section 47), common assault, and criminal damage.
Investigating Officer, Jennifer Dunkin, said: “I am pleased that Rose is now facing the consequences of his deplorable actions.
“He inflicted a sustained assault on his two victims, causing them to suffer injuries which required hospital treatment.
“I hope that this will at the very least provide him with a reminder that we will not tolerate crimes of this nature in South Yorkshire. We take all reports seriously and investigate them thoroughly to bring those responsible to justice.
“I would like to commend the victims for their bravery in coming forward and reporting what happened to them.”
