A man has been sentenced following a disorder at a house party in Corsham.
Ross Buchanan, 19, of Privet Way, Corsham, was given a 23 month prison sentence suspended for 24 months following the incident which took place on August 29, 2020.
Officers were called to a house party in Valley Road following reports that a teenage boy, who was 16 at the time, had been taken to the Royal United Hospital in Bath following a disorder during which he sustained puncture wounds to his lower back.
Buchanan was arrested and later charged. He pleaded guilty to wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm when he appeared at Swindon Crown Court this week. PCSO Shaun Redmond said:
“This incident caused a lot of concern amongst the local community due to the nature of the disorder. I am pleased that detectives working on the case were able to arrest Buchanan swiftly and ensure he was put before the courts.”
As well as the suspended sentence, Buchanan must undertake rehabilitation activities, comply with a curfew and pay £1,000 towards the costs of prosecution.
