Man guilty of one attack, but cleared over another
A 25-YEAR-OLD has been found guilty of assaulting one man but cleared of attacking another.
Aaron Nobes admitted during his trial to punching and seriously injuring both men, but claimed he acted in self-defence. He denied two counts of malicious wounding. A jury found him guilty of assaulting James Willumsen as they shared a cigarette outside a pub on January 25 this year. His nose was broken. But he was found not guilty of assaulting George Donald on September 8, 2010.
Nobes, of Wyndham Street, Stonehouse, punched Mr Donald once after he complained about late-night noise keeping him awake.
The court heard he hit a table as he fell and fractured a cheekbone. Nobes also admitted repeatedly punching Mr Willumsen after the two went to the floor outside the Skiving Scholar on North Hill. He claimed Mr Willumsen had punched him first and he only struck him to get him away.

The court heard the pair had argued after Nobes had refused to hand Mr Willumsen his cigarette back. Recorder Michael Hubbard bailed Nobes for a probation officer to prepare a report on his background. He must return on January 18 for sentence.
