A BARTON man has been sentenced to six years in prison after smashing someone with a bottle and headbutting another, police said today.

Tim McDonagh of Bernwood Road, Barton was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on Tuesday to six years imprisonment for one count of grevious bodily harm with intent and one count of common assault, Thames Valley Police have reported.

The 36-year-old was found guilty by unanimous jury.

The offences concerned two male victims who were 19 and 20-years-old at the time. The incident happened at around 7pm on Sunday, March 1 2015.

They were at the White Horse public house in London Road, Oxford when one was head butted and the other had a bottle smashed on his head.

McDonagh was arrested on the same day and charged on May 22.

Investigating officer Det Con Matthew Hodgetts said: "McDonagh was convicted of two violent attacks upon students who were just trying to enjoy an evening in the pub with friends.

"I hope that the sentence given shows that violent behaviour will not be tolerated."
