A man has been sent to prison for six years for kicking another man in the head over and over again.
George Jacomelli, of Iver in Buckinghamshire, had pleaded guilty to grievous bodily harm with intent.
The incident occurred on 19th December in 2015, when an operator in Tower Hamlets CCTV control room spotted a male being knocked to the ground and being kicked.
“Officers arrived on scene a few minutes later and found the 41-year-old victim lying on the floor near the junction with Jubilee Street,” police said.
“The victim received a number of injuries in the attack, including several fractures to his cheek, chin and jaw areas and a broken nose. He had to have surgery but has since made a full recovery.
“Nothing was stolen in the attack,” they added.
And Detective Sergeant Rob Brown from Tower Hamlets CID added: “This was a vicious attack in which Jacomelli repeatedly kicked the victim with full force in the head as he lay prone and vulnerable on the ground. We would like to thank the witnesses for coming forward and helping us to bring Jacomelli to justice.”
