Unruly brothers beat up man who dated their mum after meeting online

They allegedly assaulted him to a pulp and told the hapless man to stay away from their mum. 

A Leeds (United Kingdom) court heard Lewis and Reece Morley left the victim with broken ribs and a fractured eye socket after they took exception to his "uncouth" behaviour.

It is alleged that Lewis and Reece were at a party with their mum when the man came along. 

He started getting cosy with their mum at the party and the two brothers did not like what they were seeing. 

They waited for the party to finish and once it was over, they followed him to his car. 

They eventually dragged him out of his car and started beating him up. They accused him of preying on women online. 

The unnamed man had met their mum on an online dating site. The mum trued tried refraining her boys from assaulting the man saying he had done nothing wrong.

Prosecuting, Ms Cooper said Lewis had been in custody for the past eight months. Reece, 24, of Slingsby Crescent, Harrogate, was given a 22-month sentence, suspended for 18 months. He was ordered to pay £1,000 compensation to the victim.

Lewis, 22, of Lincombe Drive, Roundhay, was made the subject of a 12-month community.
