Thug given suspended sentence for hammer attack

A suspended prison sentence has been given to a Windsor man who hit someone with a hammer after an argument.

Jody Townsend, from Maidenhead Road, was sentenced at Reading Crown Court on Friday, July 11 after pleading guilty to ABH.

The 37-year-old was sentenced to 10 months in prison, suspended for 18 months following the attack in Thames Street of Thursday, December 19.

Townsend walked-up to a man at about 7pm.

After a dispute he produced a hammer from his pocket and hit the victim around the head and legs with it.

It left his victim with a lump on his head and bruising on his legs.

Townsend has also been given a 12 month supervision order and a six month alcohol treatment order.
