Man assaulted after trying to help woman, Carlisle court told
Published at 10:56, Monday, 11 February 2013
Carlisle Crown Court has heard how a Good Samaritan ended up being seriously injured when he intervened in what he thought was a man’s violent assault on his girlfriend.
Stephen Armstrong was hurt when he went to help Danielle Phillipson who, he thought, was being beaten up by her partner Kyle Sangerman.
In court, Sangerman, 21, of Scotby Road, Carlisle, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm on him.
But, the court heard, he still denied the assault on Ms Phillipson.
Judge Paul Batty QC said Sangerman could not be sentenced for the violence he meted out on Mr Armstrong until after Thursday when city magistrates will hold a trial and decide whether or not he was guilty of the common assault on Ms Phillipson.
He will return to the Crown Court and be sentenced for the assault on Mr Armstrong on February 22.
In the meantime he was allowed bail.
