A 'stupid' Dartford man who could have killed someone after he kept deliberately throwing rocks at cars as they were driven at speed has been jailed.

Glynn Williams smashed the windscreens of moving cars and caused serious injuries to drivers after he constantly threw rocks in 2015.

Williams, 37, formerly of North Street, targeted motorists in rural areas whilst he was working as a delivery driver between January and September 2015.

Kent Police said one victim suffered shocking injuries to her face, and drivers had been targeted whilst children were in their cars.

Williams was identified after a media appeal and several witnesses said they had seen a van being driven away before or after incidents.

During his interview,Williams denied any wrong doing - even claiming residents had a grudge against him.

The case went to trial at Maidstone Crown Court and on September 15, and Williams was found guilty of two offences of assault, 14 counts of criminal damage being reckless as to whether life be endangered and two further counts of criminal damage.

He had denied all the offences.

Williams was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment at the same court on Tuesday,December 19.

Leading the investigation, Police Constable Lee Oakley said: "This is a very strong sentence and one which really reflects just how dangerous and reckless Williams’ actions were.

"The vehicles he targeted were sometimes travelling at considerable speeds, before they were struck by large rocks, sometimes shattering windscreens and completely obscuring the vision of drivers.

"It is no exaggeration to say that someone could quite easily have been killed as a result of Williams’ thoughtless crimes.

"Why he ever set out to deliberately commit such offences remains unclear. What we do know is that his actions resulted in drivers being injured, including one woman who suffered some shocking injuries to her face.

"Williams is now paying the price for his sheer stupidity and I’m delighted that justice has been served to the many victims who came forward and provided us with the evidence which proved his guilt."
