Scunthorpe man locked up for attack on own grandmother

Jason Mace Jason Mace was sentenced to seven years

A 20-year-old man who admitted assaulting his own grandmother has been locked up for seven years.

Jason Mace, of West Common Crescent, Scunthorpe, left the elderly woman with serious head injuries following the attack on 23 July.

She was found outside her home in West Common Gardens in a "fragile state".

Mace was sentenced at Grimsby Crown Court after pleading guilty to a single charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

Det Insp Alan Curtis, of Humberside Police, said: "This was a horrific ordeal that he subjected his own grandmother to, and I appreciate that this is a difficult circumstance for the innocent members of his family to deal with.

"People who commit offences such as this need to be brought to justice and taken from the streets of North Lincolnshire.

"I am pleased to see that Mace will be in custody for a number of years."

Mace was sentenced to seven years in a young offenders' institution and ordered to pay a £120 victim surcharge.
