A Denham man has been jailed for after he attacked a man with a hammer in an underground car park in Denham.

On March 8 last year, 53-year-old Victor May lured a 39-year-old man to the car park, where May was storing a boat for the man.

May told the man to come and remove his boat. When the victim turned up, May attacked him with a hammer before demanding money from the victim for payment for storage of the boat.

The victim’s arm was struck in the attack, resulting in a broken arm.

Still armed with the hammer, May then marched the victim to a cash point where the victim withdrew £20 in cash and handed to May.

May was voluntarily interviewed and charged on 16 December 2018.

May was sentenced to seven years six months for GBH, four years for robbery and one year for possession of an offensive weapon to run concurrently. May also had 6 weeks added to his sentence to run consecutively for a suspended sentence for an unrelated assault.

Detective Constable Andrew Melton of Force CID based at Aylesbury, said: “I am satisfied with the conviction of May, who is an extremely dangerous man, he lured the victim into a secluded location and used a hammer in a vicious unprovoked attack that resulted in a broken arm and subsequently months of medical complications.

“I now hope that with this conviction the victim can start to move forward with his life.”
