A violent thug who sliced a man’s throat when he attacked him with a pint glass in an Aylesbury pub has been jailed.

Brandon Broomhead-Fox, 24, of no fixed abode, was sentenced to three years in prison at Aylesbury Crown Court today (Friday) following the attack at the Feathers pub on June 21.

The thug had pleaded guilty to one count of grievous bodily harm, and the court heard how he attacked his victim so savagely with a pint glass that it shattered on impact and left him with a deep, bleeding wound.

When police arrested him, they discovered that the violent offender had a small armoury of weapons in his car, including an extendable baton, a metal golf club and a baseball bat.

On the day of the attack, the victim was in the Feathers Pub in Aylesbury with a friend.

Broomhead-Fox, who was also in the pub, confronted the victim’s friend, and when the victim tried to act as a peacemaker and got between the pair, the brute attacked him.

The attacker was holding a pint of beer, but picked up an empty glass and swung it at the man with such force that it smashed upon impact with his neck, causing a deep wound which was millimetres from the main artery.

The victim lost consciousness and was saved by a retired paratrooper who was also in the pub and was able to provide first aid.

Meanwhile, Broomhead-Fox had left the pub by taxi. The driver later confirmed that their customer was covered in blood.

Appearing before Judge Swaffer via video link from prison, Broomhead-Fox was handed a three-year jail term.

He could be released from prison on licence after serving 18 months of the sentence.
