The Brighton boy, who is now 16 and cannot be named for legal reasons, attacked the 23-year-old on Thursday, 4 June last year.

Last week, he was given a 12-month youth rehabilitation order after admitting to wounding and grievous bodily harm and offering to supply cannabis at Brighton Magistrates Court.

He was also ordered to pay his victim £150 compensation following the hearing on Tuesday, 10 May. The 23-year-old, also from Brighton, was punched in the face and his jaw was fractured.

The teenager has links to the troubled Deghayes family, including Abdul Deghayes who was convicted last August of having drugs after being arrested outside Shakedown where he was refused entry as he appeared to be drunk.
