A man has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment by unanimous jury after being found guilty of grievous bodily harm after he fractured a woman’s skill in a Windsor bar.

Rossi Shadrawy, aged 27, of Stephenson Road, Twickenham, assaulted a woman at the Boom Bar in Goswell Hill on New Year’s Eve 2017. At around 2am, the victim became involved in an altercation with another group.

She ended up on the ground when Shadrawy, from another group, threw a glass in her face. The victim sustained a fractured skull during the incident. He then quickly left the club.

Shadrawy was arrested on 1 January 2018 and later charged in connection with the incident on 29 June 2018. He was sentenced at Reading Crown Court on 1 March after being found guilty of Section 18 GBH following a trial which started on 27 February.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Michele Green, of Maidenhead Force CID, said: “I am grateful for the ongoing bravery of the victim throughout the 14-month investigation, which included giving evidence during the trial.

“She sustained life changing injuries as a result of the attack – a fractured skull which required four hours of surgery to insert metal plates and screws and will require check- ups for the next 10 years.

“I would also like to thank the staff at the Boom Bar who greatly assisted the investigation and provided CCTV which assisted the case and ensured justice was done. It has been a lengthy investigation, but this case shows how robustly we deal with all offences involving this level of violence.”
