A MAN who had his head stamped on, and was punched during a "mob handed" attack in Soham, has been awarded �200 in compensation.
Gary Smith was pinned up against a fence and punched in the head by Nicholas Loades, Ely magistrates were told.
Jamie Wilson then stood on Mr Smith's head while he was on the ground.
Both Loades, 31, of Carter Street, Fordham; and Wilson, 30, of Fordham Rod, Soham, admitted assaulting Mr Smith on December 13.
The court heard that Loades' van had been stolen and Wilson also had property stolen before the attack.
"You went there mob handed, it was a group action," said presiding magistrate Hamish Ross before ordering Loades to carry out 60 hours of unpaid work, and Wilson to complete 120 hours of unpaid work.
