Four men who stamped on a man’s head on an Aberdeen street have been spared jail.
The court heard how victim Artur Kosmalski had become involved in a dispute with one of the men on Bridge Street, Aberdeen, on February 9 – and was then attacked by all four.
Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard yesterday CCTV captured the incident and showed that four men were involved.
They are Albert Damean, 19, of Montgomery Road, Aberdeen, Connor Duncan, 18, of Market Street, Stoneywood, Eythan Eite, 19, of Greenburn Terrace, Bucksburn, and Itthiphon Sutthikon, 18, of Ferrier Gardens, Aberdeen.
