A man has been sentenced to prison for Grievous Bodily Harm with intent following an incident in Milton Keynes

47-year-old Marian Avram plead guilty to one count at Aylesbury Crown Court on the 3rd of December, resulting in a sentence of a year and ten months given last Friday.
On the 13th of October last year, Avram (who was drunk at the time) was approached by a female police officer, who asked if he needed help. He punched her, breaking her collarbone and bruising her face.

In a statement released today, Detective Constable Lynda Stearman spoke of the incident.
She said: “This assault was a sustained and vicious assault on a police officer who was only trying to help.

“Assaults on emergency service workers will not be tolerated. They should be able to come to work without fear that they will be injured, or end up requiring hospital treatment.

“I hope that this case serves as a warning to people of how seriously this sort of offence is taken, and that those who carry out assaults such as these can expect to receive custodial sentences.”
