A Surrey Police investigation has seen a man jailed for nearly three years for an assault outside Thorpe Park which left a victim with a broken jaw.
Reon Wong of Malcolm Way, Coulsdon, pleaded guilty at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday (May 19) to causing grievous bodily harm, assault and affray, and was later sentenced at the same court to 33 months in prison.
The incident started at an event at the theme park at around 2am on Sunday 6 July 2014 when two groups were involved in an altercation inside the venue.
One group was ejected by security and they then confronted the second group as they were attempting to leave the car park area outside.
Wong was identified as being the main aggressor in the fight that followed which resulted in three people being taken to hospital. A 25-year-old man suffered a broken jaw while an 18-year-old woman and 24-year-old man suffered facial injuries.
The 26-year-old was traced through his details being left on a guest list at the venue while he was also positively identified through CCTV images which matched descriptions given by the victims.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Ben Kirby from Staines CID, said: “This was a shocking assault which came about because Reon Wong felt he and his friends were wrongly ejected from the venue. He then confronted his victims outside and carried out the sustained attack.
“It was a nasty incident which left the victims understandably distressed, while one will have to live with the damage caused to his jaw for the rest of his life.
“We will simply not tolerate such violent attacks and I hope the sentence demonstrates our commitment to bringing offenders to justice.”
