Man, 28 jailed for assault, criminal damage and shoplifting

A 28-year-old man from Bournemouth has been jailed for five weeks for assault, shoplifting and two counts of criminal damage.

Jordan Ashley Burnell, of Cecil Road, was sentenced at Southampton Magistrates’ Court on Friday (7 June) following the incidents in Ringwood on the evening of Monday 8 January.

As well as the time he must now spend behind bars, Burnell was also ordered to pay £50 in compensation.

It follows incidents at three businesses on Butlers Lane, Poulner, commencing at 8.10pm on the evening in question.

Burnell, who pleaded guilty to the offences, entered Tesco and attempted to steal two bottles of wine, but was challenged by a staff member whom he then assaulted by pushing and punching.

Following this, Burnell head-butted and damaged a window at Belinda’s Bakery, before then head-butting and damaging another window while attempting to resist arrest, this time at Wine Box.
