Two brothers have been jailed for a total of 20 years after attacking a man in Tilbury.
Ferrell Falzon, from Clacton, and his brother Maison Falzon, from Tilbury, were jailed at Southend Crown Court on Tuesday 8 February for their part in an assault on Friday 13 August 2021.
Officers were called to reports of a fight involving weapons in Malta Road at around 5pm.
A man in his 20s, was taken to hospital by air ambulance after he sustained injuries that were considered life-threatening at the time.
The brothers were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder later that same day and were both charged and remanded to appear at court.
Both denied attempted murder but later pleaded guilty to an alternative charge of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
Ferrell Falzon, 19, of Diana Way, Clacton, also admitted possession of an offensive weapon. He was jailed for nine years with a four-year extended licence for GBH and another nine years, to run concurrently, for possession of an offensive weapon.
Maison Falzon, 26, of Leicester Road, Tilbury, also admitted dangerous driving. He was jailed for 11 years for GBH and 12 months for the dangerous driving, to run concurrently. He was also disqualified from driving for five years and ordered to sit a re-test.
After the sentencing, investigating officer Detective Inspector Rowan Perrior, said:
“This incident happened in a public street at a time when ordinary members of the public were making their way home. It would have been extremely frightening for anyone to witness it and I’d like to thank those people who came forward and told us what they saw and provided imagery, which undoubtedly played a key part in this case.
“There is no place for such violence, here in Essex.
“Ferrell and Maison Falzon have admitted their parts in this serious incident, and have been jailed for their acts of violence.”
The court ordered the charges of attempted murder to lie on file for both men.
