TWO teenage boys from Blackpool were today both detained for three years for an attack last year that left the victim with a permanent eye injury.

Kyle Spencer, 19, of St. Michael’s Road, Blackpool, was sentenced to three years’ detention in a young offenders’ institute at Preston Crown Court having previously pled guilty to one count of causing Grievous Bodily Harm with Intent. In addition, a 17-year-old boy was also sentenced to three years’ detention in a young offenders’ institute having pled guilty to one count of causing Grievous Bodily Harm with Intent and one count of causing criminal damage for his part in the same incident.

These sentences relate to an incident in the early hours of Saturday 9 March of last year when Spencer and the 17-year-old boy seriously assaulted a local resident who had challenged their behaviour when he was woken at his address by the sound of the two youths causing damage to the nearby Anchorsholme Park. The injuries suffered by the victim were so serious, he required hospital treatment at the time and still requires treatment of his eye injury, as it is permanently damaged.

DC Alan Quanbrough of Blackpool CID said; “This was a senseless and sustained attack on the victim, who received life-changing injuries. He was simply acting in the interests of his local community, and so, we welcome the court’s decision to imprison Spencer and his fellow attacker today.”
