A man has been jailed for six years for a violent attack in Boston on Boxing Day 2014.

Karol Korycki, 20, from Boston, was sentenced at Lincoln Crown Court yesterday after earlier pleading guilty to a charge of assault with intent to rob.

Korycki repeatedly punched, kicked and stamped on his victim during the attack near the town’s bus station.

"You subjected your victim to a vicious, sustained attack in which you repeatedly kicked, punched and stamped on him. Much of the violence occurred when he was on the ground.

"You could quite easily have killed him or caused serious injury to his brain. It is remarkable that the injuries were not much more serious."

– Judge Michael Heath
