Howard Shaw has secured the conviction at Bradford Crown Court of two brothers in Halifax for Causing Grievous Bodily Harm with Intent arising out of a planned attack involving the repeated use of a hammer.
The two men had laid in wait for their victim and attacked him as he arrived home late at night. They then chased him through nearby streets. A third unidentified man tried to block the victim’s path as he fled by driving a car into his path. When caught, the victim was repeatedly struck about the head and body with the hammer causing multiple fractures and a head wound.
They were convicted following a week’s trial and sentenced to 10-years imprisonment and 9-years imprisonment.
