An Ipswich barber who hit a man with a bottle in a late night attack will be sentenced next month.
Before Ipswich Crown Court on Monday, March 18 for a plea hearing was Cristian-marius Mester, 30, of Croft Street, Ipswich, who admitted unlawfully wounding the victim on February 17.
He pleaded not guilty to a more serious charge of wounding with intent to cause him grievous bodily harm and this plea was accepted by the prosecution.
Judge John Devaux adjourned the case until the week commencing April 29 for a pre-sentence report and warned Mester that all sentencing options would be open to the court.
Stephen Mather, prosecuting, said the victim of the assault suffered a 1.5cm cut which was glued and bruising during the attack.
He said the injury was caused by a bottle which “more by luck than judgement” didn’t break during the late night attack.
Mike Warren, for Mester, said his client ran a barber’s shop in Ipswich and had no previous convictions for offences of violence.
