Morera-morgan And Nino2 men who climbed onto a rooftop in Ventnor and launched projectiles at the Police below during a 3-hour standoff have been jailed.

28-year-old Nino Cavanagh and 21-year-old Lewis Morera-Morgan appeared at Isle of Wight Crown Court for sentencing earlier today (Tuesday).

The pair had been charged in connection with an incident which took place at an address in Albert Street, Ventnor, on 20th June this year.

A 43-year-old man, who was known to the duo, was assaulted by Morera-Morgan at the address, resulting in him being admitted to hospital with serious injuries to his head and face including fractured eye sockets and perforated ear drums. During this incident Cavanagh stole some of the man’s personal belongings.

At a previous court hearing, Cavanagh admitted theft, and Morera-Morgan pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm.

In a separate incident, on 29th July this year, Police attended an address on Lowtherville Road in Ventnor to conduct a search. Cavanagh and Morera-Morgan, who were inside the address at the time, climbed up onto the roof and started shouting abuse at officers.

Cavanagh threw concrete blocks at Police and, over the course of 3 hours, both defendants continued to break bits of material off the roof to throw at officers below.

A car parked near the address sustained damage as a result of being struck by missiles thrown by the 2 defendants.

They were eventually arrested and charged with affray and criminal damage, which they both admitted at a previous court hearing.

Cavanagh, of Kestrel Way in Carisbrooke, was jailed today for 18 months. Morera-Morgan, of Trinity Road in Ventnor, was jailed for 23 months. Both men were also made subject to a 5 year restraining order in relation to the man who was assaulted at the Albert Street address.

Following the sentencing, DC Ross Jones said:

“These were violent offences which saw a man hospitalised with serious injuries, and also saw the safety of police officers put at significant risk by the defendants’ animalistic behaviour.

“There is simply no place in society for this kind of behaviour, and I’m pleased that the work of all officers involved in investigating these incidents has now resulted in both men being put in prison where they rightly belong.”

Lenient sentence in the extreme. But I think the police have found the missing link between neanderthal man and modern man.

Will that neanderthal Nino ever grow up? And he has a kid as well. What a role model. Such a pathetic loser.

Behaving like a couple of toddlers throwing a tantrum. Need to grow up. We should be able to delete people like this. Have a citizen score, if you score drops below zero, delete.

Sad thing is these two trash will never change. They used to terrorize Ventnor until one got banned from Ventnor indefinitely. As with any immature school bully, stand up to them and they **** their pants. Scum with no morals or intelligence (the latter goes without saying).
