Matuesz Szorek sentenced to seven years in prison

A Harlesden man has been jailed for seven years for viciously attacking his father and uncle outside a pub.

Mateusz Szorek, 24, of Manor Park Road, was convicted of grievous bodily harm following the incident outside the Misty Moon Pub, where he also attacked his uncle’s friend.

The three men suffered serious head and facial injuries but not did not want to press charges.

However, a string of witnesses came forward and give statements.

Szorek initially pleaded not guilty, but changed his plea during the trial after the court heard overwhelming witness evidence against him.

Speaking after the sentencing at Harrow Crown Court, on November 15, DC Laura Dunn from the Violent Crime Unit said: “This was an appalling act of violence where three victims were assaulted which left one with life changing injuries.

“I am pleased that a dangerous young man has received a sentence proportionate with his actions.

“I would like to thank the witnesses for their support in helping to securing this conviction.”

The incident took place on October 30 last year.
