ZACHARIAS Lupson is facing a possible prison sentence after pleading guilty to assault causing actual bodily harm at Ely Magistrates' Court.

The court heard how the 19 year-old, of Berry Close in Stretham, repeatedly punched claimant Martin Guy in the face on March 7, leaving him with black-eyes and a bloodied face.

Prosecutor Laura Mardell described to magistrates how Lupson and 18 year-old friend Tobias Badcock, had started talking to Guy after the latter had emerged from a nearby pub.

Following some heated-exchanges between the men, Guy head-butted Lupson in a bid to escape. Lupson then punched Guy up to 15 times, causing significant injury.

Adjourning sentencing until June 25 for a report to be prepared, chairman of the magistrates Janet South said: "We are very concerned at the state in which you left Mr Guy and find this whole case very unpleasant."

Badcock, of Guntons Close in Soham meanwhile, denied a similar charge of assault causing actual bodily harm and will face trial on August 20.
