Samuel South of Guildford has been sentenced to six years for smashing a wine glass over a man’s head in an unprovoked attack.

South, 35, of Applegarth Avenue, was found guilty of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm at Guildford Crown Court on Friday (May 14).

Officers had been called to Rokeby Court in Woking on Sunday, October 7, 2018 after reports of a serious assault. The victim had been at the flat with South and two others when South hit him over the head with a wine glass.

South had left carrying the remainder of the smashed glass. Found outside Woking library shortly afterwards, he told an officer: “I knew you were coming for me anyway.”

The victim’s serious head injuries required surgery, but some glass fragments could not be removed.

Detective Constable Kerry Plumb said: “Statements from the victim and witnesses revealed this as a completely unprovoked attack, which shows just how volatile and dangerous a man South is. The victim has been left with permanent scarring.

“Any kind of assault will not be tolerated in Surrey.”
