A man involved in a planned attack which left his victim badly beaten up has been jailed for 50 months at Lincoln Crown Court.
Piotr Tysevic broke into a house in Sydney Street, Boston, and then attacked a Lithuanian man inside.
Mark Achurch, prosecuting, said the victim and three of his friends had spent the afternoon drinking at the property before Tysevic and three other men arrived and started banging on the door.
Mr Achurch said “The men were strangers. They were refused entry. They started banging aggressively at the front door but the door was locked. A couple of minutes later the four males appeared in the back garden. Two of them gained entry via a window into the back room. Both men were very aggressive and threatening.”
The man who was targeted was told he would be chopped into pieces if the group caught him but he fled upstairs, the court was told .
Tysevic was among the group who pursued him.
One of the women in the house tried to phone the police but her mobile was taken from her and smashed against a wall.
Mr Achurch said all four men joined in an attack on the complainant who fell to the floor where he was kicked. Tysevic then picked up a chair which he used to strike the victim numerous times using such force that the chair legs were bent. The incident lasted 20 minutes only coming to an end when police arrived at the scene following a 999 call.
Tysevic was arrested and told police he had been asked to go to Boston to sort out a problem with a man. He confessed to hitting the man with his fists and with the chair.
Tysevic, 24, of London Road, Sleaford, admitted burglary with intent to cause grievous bodily harm as a result of the incident on March 17.
At the August 29 hearing, Andrew Cogan, defending, said Tysevic had no previous convictions and asked that he be given credit for pleading guilty at an early opportunity.
“By his own admission the offence was committed while he was under the influence of alcohol,” he said.
