Man jailed following violent assault in Redhill in August
Daniel Partridge, 39, of Brighton Road, Redhill was sentenced to four years and three months at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday, 18 September for assault and criminal damage offences.
The incident happened in Redhill on the night of Saturday, 4 August, when Partridge who was drunk, smashed the windows of a property before viciously punching a vulnerable man. During the altercation, the victim attempted to protect his blind wife but was injured and sadly lost his eyesight.
The 39-year-old also assaulted another man, punching the victim in the face and damaging their plant pot. The victim suffered cuts to his face and hands.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Steven Cassidy said: “This was an extremely violent attack on the victims in their own homes. It was a case of Partridge mistakenly believing that the victims had been in contact with a family member. One of the victim’s was vulnerable, with health issues which were worsened by this. Sadly he may never see again because of Partridge’s actions.
“Partridge is an aggressive person who displayed violent behaviour throughout the investigation. Officers were forced to restrain him when he was taken to hospital due to his drunk state. He was obstructive and consistently refused to listen to officers.”
“We do not tolerate the behaviour that he showed that night. We will do everything possible to protect our community.”
