The appellant was out on the town and had been drinking. The offence occurred about midnight. The victim was sitting with two young women on a grassed area. They were eating some takeaway food. After making a remark of some sort directed at the victim the appellant ran at him and kicked him. The Judge was satisfied it was with considerable force. The offender was wearing steel-capped boots. As a result of what was a single kick the victim suffered a fractured orbital bone and a fractured and lacerated nose. He was taken to hospital where surgery was performed. He remained in hospital for four or five days and was off work for a period of some weeks. A plate was inserted in his cheek to remedy the fractured orbital bone and his nose had to be re-set. He was a visitor to this country on a working holiday. The victim has suffered significant financial loss. More importantly, he went through a period where he experienced loss of balance, dizzy spells and numbness in his top teeth, headaches and problems with being able to focus properly.
