A 23-year-old man who served jail time for breaking a man's jaw in a 'mindless' assault has now admitted attacking a woman and dealing drugs.

Frank Crocker admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm against the woman and possession of cannabis with intent to supply when he appeared at Worcester Crown Court on Monday.

Crocker of Lowesmoor, Worcester had also already admitted a further charge of criminal damage for which he also needs to be sentenced.

The offence of ABH against the female victim happened between April 30, 2021 and May 3, 2021. The possession of the cannabis with intent happened on May 2 last year.

Judge Martin Jackson agreed to an application by Crocker's advocate to adjourn sentence until a pre-sentence report has been prepared by the probation service.

We reported last August how Crocker was sentenced to 10 months in prison after he broke a man's jaw in two places and attacked his friend during a 'shocking' episode of 'mindless violence' outside a Worcester pub.

Crocker scaled a security fence and a gate at the car park of the Worcester Arms in London Road, Worcester, shouting 'I will take all 10 of you on!' before calling his friends on the phone for 'back up'.

He struck his first victim, Tom Emblem, with a single punch, breaking his jaw in two places during the attack on November 1, 2020. The attack happened as the pub was closing at around 10pm.

Crocker also punched Mr Emblem's friend, Calum Chitty, in the jaw. Both men had to attend hospital.

Crocker had already admitted inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent and assault occasioning actual bodily harm when he appeared before Judge James Burbidge QC.

After the assault, Mr Emblem attended A&E and needed surgery - three metal plates and a temporary wire to hold his jaw together.

He also suffered nerve damage to his lower lip which caused numbness which the victim believed was a result of the surgery.

He suffered pain, swelling and bruising to his face and had to have a wisdom tooth removed.

Mr Chitty's jaw was not broken, X-rays showed, but his face was badly swollen and he had to attend A&E because he was unable to eat anything.

The sentence for the ABH and drugs matters was adjourned until May 24. Crocker was granted bail on condition he has no contact, directly or indirectly, with three prosecution witnesses.

A fresh date may be needed if his solicitors think a further psychiatric report would be of assistance.
