A WAREHOUSE worker who helped kick and punch unconscious a fellow resident of a hostel for the homeless, was jailed for two years.

Michael Boeg’s victim, Mark Diaper, had been having consensual sex with a woman who also lived at the hostel – but Southampton Crown Court heard she later told others she had been raped.

Mr Diaper was then lured to Boeg’s room, where he was held down and attacked by Boeg and two others.

The victim suffered cuts, abrasions, bruising and a swollen eye.

Boeg, 29, formerly of Millbrook Road East, but now living in Northampton, admitted causing actual bodily harm.

Three other people were earlier jailed for their role in the violence.
