Two men have been jailed after a serious assault in Basingstoke.

A 28-year-old man was approached by two men asking for a lift on Stag Hill on 28 October 2017.

When he declined, he was subjected to a sustained attack from both men.

During the assault, he was shot repeatedly in the face, arm and back with a BB gun.

This left him with significant injuries that required surgery.

George James, 23, of Gershwin Road, Basingstoke and Travis Taylor, 21, of Branton Close, Basingstoke both pleaded guilty to:

  • GBH with intent
    • possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence
  • James was sentenced on 19 January at Winchester Crown Court to 10 years in prison, followed by five years on licence for a dangerous offender.

    Taylor was jailed on 19 January for eight years.
