Two men found guilty of unprovoked attack in Wrong'un pub in Bexleyheath
Two men have been told they could go to jail after a man was punched three times in an unprovoked attack at the Wrong 'Un pub in Bexleyheath.
Joseph Moss and Oliver Jennings had previously appeared at Bexley Magistates’ Court and denied the attack on Olusegun Jacob Orebiui on November 22 last year.
They both stood trial today, with District Judge Kamlesh Rano finding the pair guilty of assault by beating.
Jeanine Harry-Shittu, prosecuting, said: "The victim was sitting down eating and drinking and the two defendants launched an unprovoked attack by punching him.
"The victim followed the two men as they made their way to the exit and there pursued a scuffle."
Moss, 21, of Church Road, Bexleyheath, alleged he had felt intimidated by Mr Orebiui after he commented on his moustache and outfit saying he looked like a "skinhead" because he was wearing purple Oakley boots.
Jennings, 22, of High Street, Crayford, admitted forcing the victim into his seat after Moss punched him twice and then had an altercation with Mr Orebiui at the door before he was restrained by pub staff.
District Judge Rano, who said their evidence was “confused, implausible and inconsistent”, told the defendants: "Custody is a serious possibility in this case.”
The court heard Mr Orebiui was left with bruising to the left side of his face and head and fractured a finger in the incident.
The attackers were released on conditional bail and told not to contact the victim or go to the Wrong 'Un pub.
They will next appear for sentencing on June 24 at Bexley Magistrates’ Court.
