A man from Luton has been jailed for seven years after a year-long investigation by our Emerald team into an attack with a vodka bottle.

Allan Watkins, 42, of Snowford Close, was sentenced yesterday (Wednesday) after being found guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent.

On 17 October 2017, Watkins attended his then partner’s address. He was confronted by his step-son, who tried to prevent him getting into the property because of a recent incident between Watkins and his mother.

Following an altercation between the two, Watkins assaulted his step-son by breaking an empty vodka bottle over his head and jabbing him in the face with the broken end of the bottle. His injuries required hospital treatment.

CCTV placed Watkins at the scene, but he answered ‘no comment’ to all questions when interviewed. Watkins’ victim and ex-partner have also been granted a life-time restraining order against him.
