Trio jailed for brutally beating robbery victim in his own home

Three men who viciously attacked a 65-year-old man in his own home have been sentenced to a combined total of nearly 40 years in prison.

The man was left injured on the floor of his back room after the attack, which happened on July 4, 2018 at a house on Carr Lane in Cleethorpes.

The victim was home alone when two of the men – Borge Bradwell and Daniel Charnock – walked into his house and demanded money from him. When he didn’t hand any over the pair hit him with a baseball bat.

The man fell to the floor and they continued to kick him causing serious abdominal injuries. He has since recovered from his physical injuries.

The men stole over £10,000 that the victim had collected as part of a workplace lottery that he was organising at the time. They then left him lying injured on the floor.

A third man – Gavin Dyball – was with the pair before they broke into the house. He was seen standing as a lookout on the street whilst the attack was happening.

Bradwell, 40, of Watford Avenue, and Charnock, 38, of Corporation Road (both in Grimsby) pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary. They were each given a 16-a-half-year sentence in prison.

Dyball, 35, of Churchill Way in Grimsby was found guilty of burglary following a four-day trial. He was sentenced to five years and 10 months in prison for his involvement.

Detective Inspector at Humberside Police Kerry Bull said: “These men showed no remorse or care for the victim, who they viciously attacked and stole from.

“Thankfully he has recovered from the physical injuries, but the attack he endured in his own home was absolutely horrific and I want to praise him for his bravery throughout the investigative process.

“I am pleased these three are now off the streets and behind bars for the offences they committed, and I hope the result offers the victim some form of closure knowing they are now in prison and allowing him to hopefully move forward.”
