Yob bragged on Facebook about attacks

A VIOLENT yob who bragged on Facebook about his criminal activities has been jailed for more than four years.

Kyle Bagshaw, 21, from Birstall, had attacked a man in the Rose of York public house in Batley on February 20.

He initially made threats to the man before knocking him to the ground and kicking him.

The court handed Bagshaw a suspended prison sentence for this but he then carried out another attack on May 7 in the Old Wine and Spirits Vault, Birstall.

His victim sustained serious facial injuries including a broken nose, fractured eye socket and fractured cheekbone.

He later took to social media to say how he was glad he caused the injuries.

On June 17, he robbed a woman as she left a shop close to his home in Withens Road, Birstall, before he armed himself with a knife and forced his way into a family home and demanded cash from the man who was there with his two young children.

Bagshaw pleaded guilty at Leeds Crown Court to robbery, attempted robbery, inflicting grievous bodily harm, threatening behaviour, theft, failing to answer bail and breach of a suspended sentence.

Bagshaw’s solicitor Richard Canning said that his client’s life had started to go out of control following the loss of his job.

Due to this he began drinking heavily as he could not afford the rent on his property.

He was locked up for 52 months.
