Sydney man avoids jail for violent attack with builder’s spirit level

A man has avoided jail time after being convicted of a violent assault with a contractor’s spirit level.

Assad broke Mehmood’s arm with the spirit level.

“Doctors have advised me not to lift anything but a cup of coffee for two years,” Mehmood told 9News.

“Every time I go to that street or that area, I get traumatized.”

The 44-year-old father pleaded guilty to multiple charges in court today.

Assad was sentenced to 21 months and the magistrate has allowed him to serve time in the community under an intensive correction order.
