Fractured skull, nose as thugs take turns at belting

A MAN who was ambushed in his own car by a pack of men over a mysterious debt thought he would die as he was being attacked, an Ipswich court heard.

Wayne Lee Hingst, 45, went to the Caltex service station at Blacksoil with his mates, Corey James Beatson, 35, and Karl Anthony Beaton, 31, and parked, blocking the victim's car in.

Ipswich District Court heard the trio forced their way into the man's car and proceeded to take turns in bashing him to the face and head.

Beaton went first, inflicting multiple blows, before Beatson unleashed a lengthy belting and Hingst repeatedly punched the victim to the face and head with a closed fist.

After more of the same, Hingst said: "I want another $15,000" and Beatson said: "Wayne, we spoke about this, no more talking - let's get him in the car and take him".

After a few more blows from Hingst, Beatson warned the victim: "Leave Harry alone, get the message?"

Then the trio left in their car.

During the attack on Australia Day last year the man received a fractured skull and nose and lacerations.

Hingst pleaded guilty to assault occasioning bodily harm in company and entering a car with intent, using violence.

He was sentenced to two years prison, and will be released on parole on October 18.
