Friends attack in Grantham restaurant

Have your say

Two friends were banned from Kismet in Grantham this week after admitting abusive behaviour to two patrons.

Mariusz Jedruchniewicz, 21, of Belmont Grove, Grantham, and Mariusz Dabek, 24, of no fixed address, were in the cafe drinking at 11.30pm on November 17.

Marie Stace, prosecuting, said: “The victim was standing next to the bar when he was approached by Dabek. He seemed to be talking to him without any apparent reason, he then head butted him.”

Dabek then left the bar leaving the victim with facial injuries.

At that time Jedruchniewicz, without provocation, approached the victim’s friend and punched and pushed him, causing injuries, which needed to be treated at hospital.

Defending himself Jedruchniewicz said: “I just regret what I have done. I was drinking.”

Miss Stace said: “It’s a bit confusing but part of it is to do with the victim talking to Dabek’s girlfriend.”

Dabek was fined £120 and Jedruchniewicz was fined £100, both were made to pay £85 costs and a £20 victim surcharge. The ban lasts for six months.
