A man has sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment for assaulting a woman and fracturing her skull in a Windsor bar.

Rossi Shadrawy, aged 27, of Stephenson Road, Twickenham, was sentenced at Reading Crown Court on Friday 1 March.

He was found guilty of Section 18 GBH by unanimous jury, following a trial which started on 27 February at the same court.

On New Year’s Eve 2017 the victim, a 22-year-old woman was with her sister and friends enjoying a night out in Boom Bar in Goswell Hill. At around 2am on 1 January the victim became involved in an altercation with another group. She ended up on her back on the floor when Shadrawy, from the other group, threw a glass in her face. He then quickly left the club.

The victim sustained a fractured skull during the incident.

Shadrawy was arrested on 1 January 2018 and was charged in connection with the incident on 29 June 2018.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Michele Green, of Maidenhead Force CID, said: “I am grateful for the ongoing bravery of the victim throughout the 14 month investigation, which included giving evidence during the trial. She sustained life changing injuries as a result of the attack – a fractured skull which required four hours of surgery to insert metal plates and screws and will require check- ups for the next 10 years.

“I would also like to thank the staff at the Boom Bar who greatly assisted the investigation and provided CCTV which assisted the case and ensured justice was done. It has been a lengthy investigation but this case shows how robustly we deal with all offences involving this level of violence.”
