[A] MAN has been told he faces prison for attacking a man in his Workington home.
Darren Curwen, 26, pleaded guilty to three crimes when he appeared at Carlisle Crown Court.
Curwen admitted both that he unlawfully and maliciously caused Michael McLaughlin grievous bodily harm with intent; and caused £800 damage to property belonging to him which is said to have comprised a television, dining table and a model Dalek.
Curwen further admitted a charge of “taking revenge” by assaulting Mr McLaughlin, knowing or believing that he had given evidence in respect of an earlier assault.
All three crimes relate to incidents on May 19 when Mr McLaughlin is said to have sustained a fractured eye socket and a broken finger.
Recorder Ciaran Rankin adjourned the case and asked for the preparation of background information. Curwen, of Cromwell Crescent, High Harrington, was remanded in custody and is due to be sentenced at the crown court on July 16.
Recorder Rankin told him the attack was “an extremely serious offence, the outcome of which can only be a custodial sentence”.
