Man Killed With Single Punch After Approaching Cyclist On Pavement

Andrew Young, 40, became involved in an argument with cyclist Victor Ibitoye after he told him that cycling on the pavement was dangerous.

The cyclist rode off but moments later his friend, Lewis Gill, approached Mr Young, who suffered from Asperger’s Syndrome, and punched him in the face without provocation.

Gill, 20, can be seen to walk away after looking back to see his victim lying motionless on the ground

The attack took place in a busy shopping area of Bournemouth, Dorset, and several passersby rushed to Mr Young’s aid.

He was rushed to hospital where he died the following day from head injuries with his mother at his bedside.

Gill pleaded guilty to a charge of manslaughter and was jailed for four-and-a-half years.

After the hearing, Mr Young's mother Pamela described the sentence as a 'joke'.

Mr Young became involved in an argument with cyclist Victor Ibitoye after he told him that cycling on the pavement was dangerous

The incident took place at 4.25pm on November 6 last year outside a Tesco Express in Charminster, Bournemouth, England, UK.

Mr Young was said to be able to speak several languages but had the social skills of a 14-year-old due to his condition.

The court heard Mr Young told Mr Ibitoye during the argument that riding his bike on the pavement was a ‘dangerous activity’.

After the hearing Mrs Young said her son (above) did not cause Gill 'any harm'

Mrs Young said: 'He was very particular because of his Asperger’s and he wouldn’t have liked seeing someone riding a bicycle on the pavement because it was dangerous.'

After the brief argument Mr Ibitoye cycled away from Mr Young and apparently had no idea what Gill was about to do.

Kerry Maylin, prosecuting, said: 'The defendant claims he was worried about Andrew Young because he thought he was being menacing.

'He said Andrew Young put his hand to his pocket and he thought he was going to pull out a knife or a gun.'

A post mortem examination found Mr Young had no injuries to indicate he had tried to defend himself.

The court heard Gill punched Mr Young after the victim allegedly made a racist remark.

Steven Perian, defending, added: 'He wishes he could turn back the clock and not react in the way he did.'

In jailing Gill, from Sutton, Surrey, judge Keith Cutler said Mr Young did not represent a threat to him.

He said: 'You are a powerfully built young man. You must have known that it was going to cause a significant injury and, very sadly, it did.'

Gill, who was jailed for four years after admitting manslaughter at Salisbury Crown Court last Friday, was also sentenced to two three-month prison terms to run consecutively after committing the crime while on a suspended sentence for robbery and for handling stolen goods.

This means he was sentenced to a total of four-and-a-half years in prison.

After the hearing Mr Young's mother said: 'I saw the CCTV footage in court and you can see that Andrew didn’t cause Lewis Gill any harm

'I sat with him when he died. I wish that awful man who took my son away had pleaded not guilty so he would have got a longer sentence.

'The sentence is an absolute joke. I’m a committed Christian but I think that if someone takes a life they should be prepared to forfeit their own. There have been many people who have committed manslaughter or murder in this country and they never even serve a full sentence.'

Re: Man Killed With Single Punch For Cycling On Pavement

Sad. From the title I thought it was the cyclist who was killed, was going to say I've been tempted to do the same, can't stand cyclists on the pavement (kids are exempt of course)

Four and a half years sentence is a joke imo.

In a country called India normally the relatives of the victims of such assault put up a contract with the local Mafia on the life of the person who killed their loved ones.

Re: Man Killed With Single Punch After Approaching Cyclist On Pavement

Anyone facing an assault charge who tries to use the 'racial slur' defense should have their prison term doubled. That's no fucking excuse
