City Cyber Specialist In Drunken Pub Assault

A former Royal Marine turned cyber security expert drunkenly assaulted bar staff while trying to retrieve his bag in a City pub.

Kristian Tennick, 34, an executive consultant with Bishopsgate-based KennedyPearce Consulting was drinking with a group at the nearby Britannia pub.

He left his bag - containing his door key - behind and was too  drunk to properly identify it to staff and aggressively tried to grab it from behind the bar.

Tennick, of Falcon Brook Mansions, Balham High Road, who served as a signaller in the armed forces between 2003 and 2007, pleaded guilty to assaulting barman Sean Innes and manageress Hannah Gladwin on January 22.

Prosecutor Mr. Matt Barrowcliffe told City of London Magistrates Court Tennick left the pub at 8.30pm, but returned 45 minutes later.

“He attempted to buy another drink, but this was refused due to his level of intoxication.

“Staff had his bag that he left behind, but because he could not properly identify it refused to give it to him.

“This upset the defendant and he tried to force his way behind the bar and assaulted Mr. Innes by trying to push past him several times.

“Ms Gladwin is pushed and struck multiple times, about four. She describes them as strikes, but cannot say they were punches.

‘It is assaulting two people in their place of work and aggravated by and extreme level of intoxication at the time.”

Tennick had always denied the charges, but eventually admitted the assaults after viewing the CCTV footage for the first time before the scheduled trial.

He told the magistrates: “I am really sorry. It felt reasonable at the time, but having seen that I can see it was excessive.

“This has been an awful six-month period waiting for this looming over me and knowing the impact it will have on my life and my future career and working overseas.

“It could ruin everything I’ve worked hard for and achieved.”

His lawyer Keith Myers told the court: “This incident was borne out of stupidity. He had been out with friends drinking.

“In his bag was his door keys and he tried to push past both the barman and the manageress, who says she was struck on the back.

“He apologises from the bottom of his heart. Unfortunately he saw red when he couldn’t get his door keys.”

Magistrate Colin Bateman-Jones told Tennick. “You were clearly very drunk. You couldn’t identify the bag and hit Ms Gladwin four times.”

He was conditionally discharged for two years and ordered to pay Ms Gladwin £400 compensation and Mr. Innes £100. 

Tennick must also pay £310 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

Entrepreneur Guilty Of Thumping Property Mogul In Mayfair Nightspot

Guilty: Lyons
A property tycoon has been convicted of repeatedly striking a wealthy rival in a Mayfair nightclub, despite claiming it was self-defence after being called a: Lying shyster jew.” 

Simon Lyons, 38, the joint chief executive of Enstar Capital was fined £3,000, with £5,956 costs, plus a £170 victim surcharge and made subject to a 12-month restraining order.

He was found guilty of assaulting Giles Cyril Patrick Mackay, 56, just after midnight at Dover Street’s MNKY HSE on October 7, last year.

Mr. Mackay, who founded property analytics company Hometrack, reportedly sold to Zoopla for £120m last year and is also a House of Commons advisor says he was attacked after greeting Lyons’ girlfriend Andrea.

Afterwards his spokesman said: “Mr. Mackay is pleased with today’s verdict. He was subjected to an unprovoked attack in full view of other clientele at the venue.

“He is pleased the judge said that he was sure Mr. Mackay made no antisemitic comments to Mr. Lyons and was not physically aggressive.

“To be clear, Mr. Mackay is not antisemitic and would never use a phrase like this. He is repulsed by the claim that he did.”

Mackay told the City of London Magistrates’ Court trial there was no hint of trouble when he exchanged greetings with Andrea.

“We kissed each other on both cheeks and the next thing I know I’m hit by Simon. I was not expecting to have Simon leaping around the table and smacking me in the face.”

Lyons, of New Cavendish Street denied the offence, claiming he was acting in self-defence and was in fear of his life.

He was behind the development of 54 Brooks Mews, Mayfair, London’s most expensive-ever commercial per-square foot re-fit when completed for £4m three years ago.

The pair had exchanged angry emails after becoming embroiled in family proceedings at the High Court, involving Lyons and his ex.

Struck: Mackay
“I am not satisfied so that I am sure that religiously inflammatory language was used by Mr. Mackay,” announced District Judge Davinder Sandhu.

“I am satisfied Mr. Lyons thought Mr. Mackay used religiously-charged derogatory language towards him that resulted in a loss of self-control and strike out with an open palm towards him.

“It’s clear these are two men, who sadly dislike each other profoundly.

“I don’t find self-defence arises in his case. There was no question of self-defence. Mr. Mackay did nothing on the CCTV that could be physically threatening or aggressive.” 

Mr. Mackay told the court: “I was distressed that someone I thought was normal, affable and friendly was something else. I was not the behaviour of a normal individual”

He went to the police, who issued the order, and he admits replying to Lyons in emails: “You’re f***ing crazy.” “Shut the f*** up.” “You are a bully a coward.” “You made vile, venomous, unwarranted attacks on me.” “Piss off, you’re mad.”

He was drinking his second vodka and standing in a dance area at the Latin American restaurant when struck and told police afterwards: “He punched me in the face and continued to violently attack me until he was pulled away by the security guards and ejected.”

Mr. Mackay told the trial: “He first hit me across the table and then he came around the table. I think he did run around the table.

“I had a notice that he should not harass me or come anywhere near me if we were in the same place.

“All of a sudden I saw him leap up from where he was. He pushed past his girlfriend Andrea, pushed her over the table.

“The next thing I know I was being hit in the face. Everything that was on the table got knocked off.

“He came around to my side of the table and was very aggressive by this point.

“I was hit at least three times by Simon. I remember putting my leg up to try and defend myself.”

Mr. Mackay told the court he was the victim of “one-way harassment” by Lyons and did not know he was there that night until attacked.

However, Lyons claims Mr. Mackay instigated the conflict and told Andrea: “Get Simon out of my face,” before approaching and making the insulting anti-semitic remark.

“At no time did I say that,” insisted Mr. Mackay. “I’m not interested in getting into a conflict, I’m fifty-eight, I’m a serious businessman.

“I was not looking to get into a fight. I was attempting to defend myself.”

Lyons’ legal team dug up a High Court judge’s remark from a 2012 civil cases in which he said Mr. Mackay was “careless with the truth.”

The restaurant’s CCTV of the incident was circulated by Mr. Mackay. “I knew he was sending it around to everybody, it was a campaign to discredit me,” Lyons told the court.

He claimed it seemed Mr. Mackay was planning something that night. “He was texting people. I was scared for my life. To be honest I don’t know what Mr. Mackay was capable of.

“He came charging into the place. I was scared, I wasn’t expecting to see him. 

“I’ve never seen anyone’s eyes like that before. I’ve never been so frightened in my life.

“I thought he was going to come at me. I was not being paranoid, I thought I was going to be attacked.”

Regarding the alleged anti-semitic insult Lyons added: “It was the venom, the way he said it. I thought he was going to go for me and I used what I thought was a necessary method to restrain him.”

After landing the initial blow the CCTV captures Mr. Mackay raising his left leg while seated to ward off Lyons, who then starts leaning over him pointing.

“I’m telling him: ‘Lave me alone. Please leave me alone.’ I was scared, I was terrified of what he would do.

“He was being very menacing up to that. He said he was going to have my child taken away from me.”

When quizzed by police Lyons suggested the insulting remark may have been prompted by Mackay’s opinion of financial disclosures he (Lyons) had to make in the Family Court.

“I possibly stupidly slapped Mr. Mackay and he kicked me and I slapped him again and he hit me,” he told the officers.

“I do regret slapping Mr. Mackay. I don’t go around hitting people and his kick was a lot harder than the slap.

“His eyes were mad. He looked crazed, like he’d taken drugs.”

Six-feet plus Lyons, who works out daily added: “If I hit him he ‘aint getting up after that.

“I firmly believe Mr. Mackay will be seen as a racist. It was total provocation.”

In his victim impact statement to the police Mr. Mackay said: “I had a sore jaw for a couple of days from the assault,” adding he had endured weeks of “obscene, crude and threatening” emails from Lyons shortly before.

Businessman Denies Attacking Millionaire Property Mogul In Mayfair Nightspot

Accused: Lyons
Two feuding property tycoons had to be separated at a Mayfair nightspot when one repeatedly thumped the other, claiming he’d been called a: “Lying shyster jew,” a court heard yesterday.

Giles Cyril Patrick Mackay, 56, had a police harassment notice against 38 year-old Simon Lyons, who was caught on CCTV swinging a blow after midnight at Dover Street’s MNKY HSE.

Mr. Mackay, who founded property analytics company Hometrack, reportedly sold to Zoopla for £120m last year and is also a House of Commons advisor says he was attacked after greeting Lyons’ girlfriend Andrea.

Female Detective Sentenced For Throttling Policewoman Lover Over Salt Row

A judge today said it is “staggering” there are no domestic abuse programme options for women offenders when sentencing a policewoman who attacked her female detective lover.

Asweina Gutty, 34, herself a detective constable with the Metropolitan Police, throttled her ex because she added too much salt to a romantic meal she prepared.

She screamed at: “Are you for real? I’ve spent hours making f***ing dinner and you’ve put f***ing salt in it.”

She and girlfriend Detective Constable Sharon Etheridge then ate in silence until Gutty attacked her in the bedroom as she collected belongings to return home to her husband and children.

“I found it quite staggering when told by the Probation Service there were no programmes at all for women who perpetrate domestic violence, only programmes for men,” said District Judge Nina Tempia.

“I consider this to be a very serious case,” she told Gutty at Westminster Magistrates Court.

“Not only was there a hand around your partner’s neck, but it resulted in her hitting her head on the wall and there was verbal abuse in the flat and in her car.

“This is particularly serious because it is an offence in a domestic environment. You were intimate partners, you were in a relationship.

“She also says she was experiencing controlling behaviour from you before the incident occurred.

“A lot of people may have an exemplary record in their work life, but different things are happening behind closed doors,” added the judge. 

Gutty, of Elder Court, Saw Mill Way, Stoke Newington pleaded guilty to assaulting her ex at the address on May 27.

Both officers are attached to the borough of Tower Hamlets and met last September, while serving on Bethnal Green’s Community Safety Unit.

Gutty was made subject to a twelve-month community order, which includes 100 hours community service work and must pay £200 costs; £100 compensation to her ex and an £85 victim surcharge.

Prosecutor Mr. Edward Cohen told the court Gutty shouted: “Just walk away and do what you do best, go back to your nice house and f*** your husband,” as she prepared to escape the dinner row.

“The defendant then grabbed her around the throat and pushed her back, causing Ms Etheridge to bang her head against the wall.

“She tried to grab the defendant’s wrist and pull it away and was in a state of shock and her head banged against the wall for a second time.”

Mr. Cohen explained: “Both the defendant and the complainant are females in a same-sex relationship. “Ms Etheridge is married with children and living partly with her family.

“They met at work, where they are both serving police officers and the complainant came to Ms Gutty’s flat on the day of the assault.

“They had an argument because the complainant put some salt in her dinner.

“The atmosphere soured and they ate in silence and Ms Etheridge went into the bedroom to get her things.”

The court heard this angered Gutty, who shouted: “That’s it. Run away like you always do. You’re a coward.”

Ms Etheridge told Gutty her behaviour was “not acceptable” and left with her keys in her hand.

“The defendant kept trying to pull the keyring from Ms Etheridge’s hand and they had a struggle over the keys,” added Mr. Cohen.

“As she walked to the car park the complainant looked back and saw the defendant following her.

“The defendant said: ‘If you try and do me over I’ll come and find you.’

“Ten minutes later she started bombarding the complainant with texts, phone calls and WhatsApp messages.”

She reported Gutty to the police and made a statement. “She said during the relationship the defendant was very volatile and would go off over trivial things.”

Afterwards Ms Etheridge said: “I cannot tell you how difficult this is. It is breaking my heart, but Asweina needs to know how much she hurt me.

“We had an extreme connection, we became inseparable, being with her was amazing. I loved her so much.

“When my family found out I lost them, but if being with Asweina meant losing my family then so be it.

“We were going to live together, have a family, have adventures, travel and live life to the full.

“I look at our photographs together and they remind me of great times, but there is a dark shadow.

“Asweina screamed at me because I couldn’t put stuff in a bag at the supermarket and because I left a used tissue near the bed.

“She did not want me to see my friends because of her jealousy.

“Her reactions were like a volcano, shouting at me and I’d apologise just to keep her calm.

“There were also insults like: ‘Whore, slag’ and: ‘You white people.’

“Asweina became angry because I put salt in the dinner, like I was a small child that had done something dangerous. I felt belittled.

“She followed this with anger and a rage in her eyes. Asweina became someone else and I feared for my safety.

“I saw then that this surely could not be love.

“Asweina destroyed us and our future and everything that we had fought so hard for.

“She made me feel weak, embarrassed and ashamed.

“I never in a million years expected to be the victim of domestic abuse. I always thought it was something that happened to other people, not people like me.

“I’ve been on an emotional rollercoaster, taken to black places and feel hollow inside. 

“I am grieving the loss of Asweina and feel lost without her. It breaks my heart that we are where we are now.”

“I loved her so much, but the monster within her is more dominant than the loving woman I fell in love with.”

Gutty’s lawyer Mr. Edmund Gritt told the court her behaviour is the result of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder after being exposed to disturbing incidents in her police work.

“In the course of work training in March, last year something triggered a deterioration in her mental health. She started suffering anxiety and memory loss.”

Gutty dumped her partner of three years and started seeing Ms Etheridge. 

“At the time of this offence and subsequently Ms Gutty herself was vulnerable in her personal history and diagnosis of complex PTSD.

“She was unwell for the duration of the relationship,” added the lawyer, revealing Gutty will begin an eight-week Group Trauma Therapy Programme later this month.
  
“She has also taken many sessions of private psychotherapy counselling and she apologises for what she has done.

“It was an offence committed in a matter of seconds and she came to her senses and let Ms Etheridge go.

“It was not a choke hold or a strangle hold. It was an attempt to stop her leaving and the bump on the head was unintentional.

“Although her occupation may be seen as an aggravating feature here the offence was committed in her private life, but professional disciplinary proceedings will follow to determine the question of her future.” 

Gutty is currently on restricted part-time duties with the Met.

District Tempia added: “The controlling behaviour was a feature of the relationship, stopping the complainant seeing her friends.

“What concerns me is she is a serving police officer prone to anger outbursts and she is dealing with members of the public.”

NHS Money Man Nicked Almost £50K From Dementia Mum

Money: John-Baptiste
An NHS finance manager who nicked nearly £50,000 from from his dementia-suffering mother claims his ex is blocking compensation by refusing to sell their marital home.

Peter John-Baptiste, 54, insists former wife Margaret Sulmanis, 52, the mother of their two daughters, would rather see him in prison or dead so she can inherit the Harrow property.

Today at Isleworth Crown Court he received eighteen months imprisonment, suspended for two years and must obey an electronically-tagged night time curfew for three months.

However, John-Baptiste, who suffered a stroke earlier this year, was warned if he does not comply with Proceeds of Crime Act proceedings he faces being locked-up.

He pleaded guilty to stealing £48,332.25 from Muriel John-Baptiste, 74, between December 1, 2015 and September 14, 2016, while caring for her at her Trellick Tower flat in Golborne Road, North Kensington.

“You pleaded guilty to a disgraceful offence of theft. You stole a large amount from her and it was a mean, selfish offence,” Judge Robin Johnson told him.

“You say it was because you were drinking and taking drugs. The public and I am appalled.

Ex: Margaret Sulmanis
“Even though I am passing a suspended sentence does not mean you will not go to prison if you don’t pay the money. This was a mean, nasty offence.”

John-Baptiste’s marital home in Dudley Gardens is currently on the market for £480,000, but he claims his wife, who works for City property lawyers, has successfully blocked three sales.

“The court has to determine if he has been thwarted by a lady who continues to live in the house and prevent sales to other parties,” said Mr. Tim Devlin, defending.

“She said frankly she does not care if he went to prison and if he made a fuss he would have another stroke and a heart attack and die and she would inherit it.

“She has received an inheritance and has another property and intends to rent this property once Mr. John-Baptiste goes to prison. 

“He’d like to repay the money and the house has had three offers on it, but his ex-wife has refused to accept any offers and has come here today to see Mr. John-Baptiste go to prison.”

Ms Sulmanis told the court she will received 53.75% of any sale profits, explaining: “It has to be a decent offer.
For Sale: Harrow House

“I still need to find a property for our two girls. I’m not going to accept anything.”

They have a 21 year-old daughter at university and a 16 year-old.

She denied telling her ex she would inherit the house if he had another stroke and died.

The theft was exposed when John-Baptiste’s sister noticed money was missing from their mother’s bank account and the defendant admitted he had taken the sums.

“His mother was suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s while he looked after her and he was in a bad state, getting divorced from your partner of twenty years,” said Mr. Devlin.

“He was abusing alcohol and crack. It was a shocking thing to do to his mother and all he can say if he was not his normal self.”

Bus Stop Flasher Caged

A prolific flasher, who exposed himself to five women at a favourite bus stop, has been locked-up.
Mark Nevin, 39, from Barnet was sentenced at Harrow Crown Court for six counts of indecent exposure relating to five victims.
He also admitted breaching a sexual harm prevention order and pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual activity with a child.
Nevin received a total of four years and seven months imprisonment.
Nevin would drive to a particular bus stop on Watford Way at its junction with Westside in Hendon, where he would park up and loiter at the stop waiting for lone females.
When one arrived he would get their attention by either coughing or calling out to them and upon the victim turning around he would expose himself before walking away.
Between October 2017 and February 2018, five women came forward to report six separate incidents – one being targeted by Nevin on two occasions.
One of the victims saw Nevin get into his vehicle and was able to make a note of the registration number, which she passed to police.
On February 13 Nevin was arrested at his home address.
In interview he admitted to committing the offence on at least 10 occasions.
Investigating officer, PC Jay Thorn, from the Met’s Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “The way Nevin carried out his offences was extremely calculated and disturbing.
In his pursuit for sexual gratification he has now left some of his victims too anxious to walk alone at night.
“I hope the sentence will give them some sort of comfort and closure; and would appeal for any further victims to contact police on 020 7232 7444 or 101.

Hugo Lloris Accused Of Being Double Drink-Drive Limit

Tottenham FC’s goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was allegedly over twice the drink-drive limit when police stopped him driving his new £65,000 Porsche in the West End.

The 31 year-old French international, who lifted this summer’s World Cup trophy, is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on September 12.

He is charged that on August 24 he drove the powerful dark grey 4-litre Panamera sports car in Gloucester Place, Marylebone with 80 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath.

The legal limit is 35.

Lloris gave police his home address, a large £5.9m property called in Winnington Road, East Finchley, north London.

The road runs parallel to The Bishops Avenue aka ‘Billionaire’s Row’ and is one of the capital’s most exclusive neighbourhoods.

Lloris was stopped by police at 2.10am by officers carrying out a routine stop and charged late the same day.

He was originally bailed to appear in court on September 11, but this has been put-back 24 hours at the request of his solicitors.

Clapham Muggers Snatch Woman's Watch: CCTV Released

Police continue to hunt two cowardly robbers, who snatched a watch from a woman walking with three children and her dog in Clapham.
Police were called at 5.18pm on Tuesday, July 10 to reports of a robbery in Abbeville Road.
The 42-year-old female victim was crossing the road to Caldervale Road with her two young children, a friend's child and the family dog when she was approached by two men from behind.
One of the men grabbed her arm and forced her watch from her wrist.
The victim did not require medical treatment, but was left with injuries to her arm.
The suspects left the scene by running in the direction of Cavendish Road.
