A MAN fractured another man's skull in an "unprovoked" attack in a Hampshire street.

Harry Coleborn smashed an empty pint glass over his victim's head in Military Road, Gosport.

The victim, who was walking back from the pub with his friend at the time, suffered a skull fracture and a cut above his eye.

Coleborn, 21, was jailed for 21 months during his sentencing at Portsmouth Crown Court.

The court heard that the victim and a friend were walking back from a pub in Gosport on December 7, 2017, when they were approached by two men.

One of the men, Coleborn, of Elson Lane, Gosport, used an empty pint glass to hit the victim over the head.

He had admitted one count of inflicting grievous bodily harm at a previous hearing.

A 20-year-old man from Gosport was given a conditional caution after the victim’s friend was pushed from behind.

Detective Inspector Abbie Leeson said: “This was a serious and unprovoked attack with a weapon.

“We hope this investigation and sentence provides some reassurance that offences like this one won’t be tolerated.”
