A 27-year-old man who assaulted another man in a kebab shop in Gloucester, breaking his jaw, has been told he faces a prison sentence.
Tyrell Williams, of Evenlode Road, Tuffley, admitted the attack yesterday – on what would have been the first morning of his jury trial at Gloucester Crown Court.
He pleaded guilty to assaulting Joshua Dancey on June 18 last year, causing him grievous bodily harm.
The attack took place in Flames Kebab shop on Southgate Street at 8.45pm that Monday evening.
The court heard that Williams had no previous convictions.
Asking for a probation report to be prepared on Williams, defence lawyer, Eugene Hickey said: “He entered into a kebab shop, lost his temper, threw some punches, and caused injuries.”

Judge Jason Taylor QC agreed to order a pre-sentence report and adjourned the case until March 19, granting Williams bail.
However he warned: “He understands that no promises are given?” – indicating that a prison sentence remained a possibility.
