Cumbria Crack

Man jailed for “brutal and unnecessary attack” on Carlisle householder

Carlisle Crown Court

A MAN has been jailed for a “brutal” attack which occurred inside the Carlisle home of a victim who was left bloodied and badly bruised.

Karol Szykulski went to Krzysztof Luczak’s city address to discuss sharing the rented property, but then lashed out violently amid a disagreement on the afternoon of November 25 last year.

Szykulski punched Mr Luczak several times in the face, and then continued his attack with kicks and blows with a chair leg despite the victim being grounded and in “no position to offer any threat or defence”.

After Szykulski left the property, Mr Luczak “was aware there was blood everywhere”, Carlisle Crown Court heard, and later received hospital treatment having sustained extensive bruising across his body and a nasal fracture.

Prosecutor Tim Evans spoke of a “real physical mismatch” between the older, skinny and slightly built householder, and his “powerfully built” 23-year-old attacker.

Szykulski, of Shaddongate, Carlisle, admitted assaulting Mr Luczak, causing actual bodily harm, on the basis he perceived being under threat when he carried out the violence.

Jailing him for 16 months, Recorder Michael Murray said: “This was a brutal and seemingly unnecessary attack.”
