Trio spared jail over assault on club doorman
10:30am Tuesday 17th July 2012 in Oxford
THREE waiters who set upon an Oxford club's doorman with a broken bottle have escaped being sent to jail.
Clems doorman Nicolai Schroeder was pushed to the floor before being kicked, punched and hit over the head with a bottle.
Ignacio Ussia and Antonio Marguenda, who work together at the Jericho Cafe, and David Andrier were sentenced at Oxford Crown Court yesterday having earlier admitted causing actual bodily harm.
The incident took place at about 4am on April 1 as customers left the venue near The Plain roundabout.
Cathy Olliver said Mr Schroeder pushed 28-year-old Ussia after he failed to respond to his request to move.
The doorman was then pushed on to the pavement by one of the other men before Ussia kicked him repeatedly in the head and smashed a bottle over his head.
Andrier, 28, was also seen to hit Mr Schroeder in the head, while 29-year-old Marguenda stamped and kicked the bouncer. Mr Schroeder needed four stitches to his head.
Ussia and Marguenda, both of Magdalen Road, East Oxford, and Andrier, of Mill Street, West Oxford, were all given eight-month jail terms, suspended for a year.
They must each pay £500 compensation to Mr Schroeder and abide by a three-month night-time curfew.
