A RISCA man who drunkenly attacked a pensioner and his car has received a prison sentence of more than two-and-a-half years.

Mandas Narusis, 31, of Sycamore Crescent, Ty Sign, appeared at Cardiff Crown Court on Friday 7 May.

He pleaded guilty to two offences – wounding or inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent and criminal damage.

The victim required hospital treatment after the incident on Friday 25 September of last year, after Narusis caused damage to the elderly man’s car by smashing the window before punching him multiple times in the face.

PC Jennifer Evans, the officer in the case, said:

“Mandas Narusis attacked the motorist, who stopped sharply to avoid colliding with him, after he walked out into Commercial Street while drunk.

“He then launched an unprovoked and sustained attack on the elderly man, who had just popped out to the shops.

“The victim spent four days in hospital following this distressing incident. I hope that the victim can regain his confidence that he has lost as a direct result of this attack.

“Narusis will now have time to reflect on his behaviour. Hopefully he will use that time wisely.”

Narusis was sentenced to two years and eight months – or 32 months – in prison
