Five years for bike lock attack
a man who robbed a passing cyclist by smashing a bike lock into his face has been jailed for five years at Dublin Central Criminal Court.
Jason Gumble (21), of O'Devaney Gardens, Dublin 7, pleaded guilty to robbery at North Circular Road on April 15, 2014, and to assaulting a garda at O'Devaney Gardens the following day.
The victim was smacked in the face when cycling home at 11.30pm. He needed six stitches, and later underwent surgery to fix his broken cheek with a metal plate.
