Tylah-Jo Bryan, 22, Michael O’Docherty (aka Tamzin Lush), 27, and Amarnih Lewis-Daniel, 22, subjected their victim to the brutal assault at Leicester Square Underground station, in London’s West End. Hannah Bryan, 22, who has four children, also took part in the assault at around 2.15am following a ‘minor provocation’. The women were said to have kicked, punched and stamped on the victim.
Prosecutor Julian Pozimski described the incident as ‘severe violence’, adding the victim suffered cuts and a black eye and was taken to hospital. All the defendants admitted violent disorder.
Westminster magistrate Kirsty Walker agreed with the prosecutor the incident was serious and decided they defendants needed to be sentenced in a higher court.
She told them: ‘This offence is so serious that we feel it needs to be sent up to the crown court.’ Tylah-Jo and Hannah Bryan, both from Barking, Lewis-Daniel, from Dagenham, and O’Docherty, from Romford, will be sentenced in Blackfriars crown court when a date is arranged.
