Re: Philip Nicholas Ladd who assaulted a security guard at a charity event and leaving him permanently disfigured, has been jailed for five-and-a-half years by Swansea Crown Court, Wales, UK.<br />
He was found guilty of assault causing grievous bodily harm after biting off a large section of a man’s ear in March 2019.<br />
Dyfed-Powys Police were called to New Quay Football Club following the incident, which saw the 38-year-old react violently when he was stopped from going back inside the venue by a security guard.<br />
After punching the victim to the head, Ladd bit the member of staff’s ear and spat out part of it on the floor in front of him before leaving in a taxi.<br />
The victim, who was taken immediately to hospital, says the injury has left him feeling conscious about the way he looks.<br />
In a victim impact statement, he said: “This was not simply an assault that to an extent you are aware could happen working as a security operative at events. This was a cruel, vindictive attack that has resulted in an injury that will never truly heal, and I will often be reminded of what happened to me.<br />
“It was very difficult for me to go back to work, but I have managed this out of necessity to support myself and family. It still remains difficult for me as I fear that I could again get attacked, simply for doing my job.<br />
“I should not have to feel like this and I did not before this incident.”<br />
An investigation into the incident saw officers interview a number of witnesses and assess CCTV footage from the area around the venue to establish the identity of the suspect.<br />
Ladd was arrested within hours of the incident being reported, and officers continued to investigate the offence – examining DNA samples from both the defendant’s mouth and the victim’s ear.<br />
Ladd, of Aberaeron, was charged with assault causing grievous bodily harm with intent in November 2019.<br />
He denied the offence and was found guilty of assault causing grievous bodily harm at a
