Arrested and charge with Section 20 Assault! watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi Everyone

    My brother has been charged with Section 20, heres the story,

    He was verbally threaten by a tress-passer on his work private property, he calls the police on 999 and tells them that he is being threaten by some guy, while he's on the phone the guy grabs him and assaults him where he receive injuries to his head, he tells the police on the phone that he was assaulted by the person, the person again tries to take his phone and come at him again at this point my brother throughs one punch to the attackers face. As result of the punch the attacker has fractured cheekbone so when the police arrives he gets arrested for section 20 and later charged with it!

    He tells police this was self defence.

    This is so shocking and thought post this so people are aware of how the police works.

    Police show up to find someone with a fractured cheek bone and another with head injuries. Logically it makes sense to arrest them both and the CPS clearly thought there was enough evidence to charge.

    Your bother will be able to argue his innocence in court and the judge/jury decide.

    That sounds like the police are working exactly as expected.
How are you feeling in the run-up to Results Day 2018?
