A THATCHAM man has changed his plea and admitted carrying out a pub attack.

In the dock at Reading Magistrates’ Court on Monday, January 4, was Nicholas Canes.

The 22-year-old, who lives at Clerewater Place, was accused of assaulting Huno Fulpesi by beating him at The Rowbarge pub in Woolhampton on March 5 last year.

He had previously denied the attack, but subsequently changed his mind and pleaded guilty.

Mr Canes was made subject to a 12-month community order.

In addition, he was ordered to pay £400 costs, plus a statutory victim services surcharge of £90.
