Lowestoft man and youth to be sentenced over attacks
A Lowestoft man who went to a house in the town armed with a machete and was involved in attacks on three young men will be sentenced next month.
Tony Cousins, 44, of London Road South, had denied four offences of unlawful wounding on August 24 last year.
On Thursday a jury at Ipswich Crown Court took less than an hour to find him guilty of three of the offences and not guilty of the remaining charge.
Sentence was adjourned for a pre-sentence report until next month and Cousins was remanded in custody.
A 17-year-old boy who has admitted three offences of unlawful wounding in relation to the same incident will be sentenced with Cousins.
