A 32 year old man, who beat up and threatened to "burn alive" an alleged thief he believed had stolen his laptop has been jailed.

Stephen Beresford was sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court on Monday after pleading guilty to affray at an earlier hearing.

Beresford had attacked Christopher Hill in Chepstow after accusing him of burgling his home and stealing his laptop.

He was drinking at a pub in Chepstow on June 28 last year when he received a phone call from a friend to say that Mr Hill was responsible for burgling his home a few days before, reports Wales Online.

The court heard they knocked at a door which was opened by a woman who lived in one of the four flats on the top floor.

Beresford then forced his way into Mr Hill's girlfriend's flat and a fight broke out between him and Mr Hill.

One witness described hearing Mr Hill screaming and calling for help, while another thought Mr Hill was about to be killed. Another witness heard Beresford tell Mr Hill that he was "this close from being burned alive".

Mr Hill was taken to the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport where he was treated for significant bruising.

The court heard how Beresford was angry after his laptop was stolen as it contained pictures of his son, who he drives down to see on weekends from Liverpool.

On receiving this information, Beresford and his friend, who has not been traced, went to Midway House, in Welsh Street, where Mr Hill was residing with his girlfriend.

Sentencing, Judge William Gaskell said: "I know you were aggrieved at the loss of your laptop as it had pictures of your son but you didn't go to the police, you decided to go along and confront Mr Hill in front of his girlfriend and there was violence.

"A number of female residents witnessed what you did and were quite clearly significantly affected by what they had to experience.

"One woman had the misfortune to be present at the time, she was scared for her safety and has moved away as a result of what you did.

"Another woman said she thought Mr Hill was going to be killed and the affect on her was that for two days she was crying and suffering from flashbacks.

"You brought violence into their home and when you bring violence into people's homes you go to prison."

Beresford, of Seeds Lane, Aintree, Liverpool, was sentenced to seven months imprisonment.
