Alan Evans, aged 29, of Staverton Road, Reading, and Carl Cserfalvi-Young, aged 37, of The Meadway, Tilehurst, both received eight-year prison terms at Reading Crown Court on Friday (9/3).

They were each found guilty of one count of aggravated burglary by a unanimous jury at the same court on 2 February.

It follows an incident at about 5am on 21 January, 2017, in which Evans and Cserfalvi-Young went to a property in Faygate Way, Lower Earley, and forced their way in.

The two offenders, who were both heavily under the influence of alcohol at the time, then attacked the victim, a 37-year-old man, with baseball bats, hitting him twice to the head and once to the back.

This resulted in serious injuries, which left the victim hospitalised and with a head wound which required 10 stitches.

He also sustained a golf ball-sized lump to his head, cuts and bruises to his face and severe bruising to his vertebrae.

The attack also brought about cardiac issues that required a short recovery period on a cardiac ward.

Evans was charged on 1 June, 2017, and Carl Cserfalvi-Young on 11 October, 2017

Investigating officer PC John Daltrey, of the Investigation Hub at Loddon Valley, said: “This was a vicious and unprovoked attack that left the victim with serious injuries and requiring treatment in hospital.

“The attack took place due to a personal issue between Evans and the victim.

“This violent behaviour will not be tolerated and the substantial prison sentence given to both the assailants should act as a deterrent to others.”
