A man who carried out two assaults in Dover has been jailed for more than two years.
James Stott assaulted the same man in the town in March and then in June 2020, leaving the victim with serious injuries.
He was brought back before the same court on Monday 7 September and jailed for two years and two months.
A member of the public went to the aid of the shop worker and asked Stott to leave the store, leading to Stott punching the man in the face.
Stott then saw the same man in Folkestone Road on Monday 1 June.
Following a dispute, Stott punched the man, knocking him to the floor, before kicking him in the face, causing the man to suffer multiple fractures to his eye socket and cheek bone.
The victim required surgery and the insertion of a titanium plate into his face.
‘I am pleased our investigation has led to the jailing of this violent offender and I hope the conclusion of the case gives the victim a sense that justice has been done.’
