This horrifying picture of an 89-year-old attack victim reveals why a Hextable teenager has been jailed for more than 10 years.

During a spate of violent assaults Aaron Davis, 18, beat one of his victims, Jean McDougall, so viciously her false teeth came out and her glasses were smashed.

Davis, formerly of College Road, Hextable, robbed and assaulted a number of vulnerable pensioners in their homes last year.

On October 15 police were called to Panters, Hextable, where Davis had entered and beaten an elderly couple.

He had knocked at the door carrying a black holdall and asked for the time from when Mrs McDougall answered.

Around 15 minutes later the elderly victim went to the bathroom and noticed the bag on the floor of the flat but remembers nothing afterwards other than waking up in an ambulance.

Davis had attacked her and her 84-year-old husband with a crowbar.

Mrs McDougall was left with a fractured nose and eye socket, a fracture to the base of her spine and other injuries consistent with being kicked repeatedly. Her false teeth came out due to the force of the attack and her glasses were broken.

She bravely asked the police to circulate images of her injuries to reveal the full horror of the attack.

Davis was identified as the suspect after he matched the description given by the victim and his DNA was found on the bag he had left at the crime scene.

Detectives investigating the case linked it to a previous offence that had occurred in Panters the previous month.

On September 10 an 81-year-old woman awoke from being unconscious and called her friend saying she had fallen over and hurt herself.

Ten days later in hospital the victim recalled that Davis had entered her home and assaulted her.

Golf clubs were stolen from this victim’s shed, which was set on fire.

Davis was sentenced at Maidstone Crown Court on May 6 to 10-and-a-half years in prison.

He had pleaded guilty at a previous court hearing to three counts of GBH with intent, two counts of robbery, burglary of the shed and another burglary at the football pavilion in Hextable Park.

Kent Police Detective Constable Shelley Rainer, who led the investigation, said: “It is a case that has caused immeasurable damage to the victims, their families and the community they live in.

“The victims’ courage in supporting the police has led to the successful conviction and prevented other offences in the future.

“Despite the age of the defendant the judge has imposed a significant sentence I think reflects the serious nature of the offences and also the threat that he poses to society.”

Totally agree with you what a complete @@@@@@@.. doesn’t deserve to breath the same air as his victims. This poor old lady has survived two wars only to be attached in her own home by this sick individual!!!

His old enough to be put in a room and receive the same treatment I would happily volunteer but, no doubt the laws of this country would put me away longer than the criminal.

Best wishes to jean McDougall I hope she makes a quick recovery.

I would think there's a good chance that some of the inmates will take a dislike to this little sh!t. Whilst a violent criminal is a violent criminal, even amongst them there's be some that would still be disgusted at beating up an elderly person. Hopefully, they'll take their disgust out on him!

Well Aaron think you are hard beating up our old folk, and proud of your actions. Your sick, hope you suffer in prison.

But he will be protected, he has human rights on his side. Something he took from his victims, there human rights!. Now a social worker, he will be given at the tax payers expense. Food, tv games console. These are just a few of what will be given to him, well protected. Kept away from harm, his social worker will see to that. Then its will be made to feel his victims, were at fault.

He on leaving prison will then be given everything to start a 'new' life!.

The system works for the Aaron's of this world. To call him a person, never. An animal, thats an insult to our animals!.

I think it would be better if he was killed, however thats to nice and painless. Yes he should suffer, but that will not happen! It will be poor Aaron, only 18 still a child!.

Victims come first, Aaron is not a victim. But the system will make him a victim.

Jean is my mum and has made a good physical recovery. The emotional damage will never be reversed and Johns dementia has been accelerated by this attack. Readers may be pleased to hear that Davis was assaulted more than once by other inmates and had to be put into segregation. The only good thing to come out of this was the compassion shown by so many people including the neighbour who saved them by intervening, the police and hospital staff and the local schoolchildren who presented them with a wonderful hamper. We hope they can try to put this behind them and regain some trust and independence. Thanks for your supportive comments.

I know it will probably be out in less than five years, but we can all rest assured that the little old lady attacker will (I hope) endure a few big hairy man attacks upon his person whilst in prison. Grown to fear the sound of footsteps behind you scumbag, oh! and the sound of the shower next to yours being turned on.

So now he's in segregation - nice room of his own, computer, TV, room service etc etc

Just surprised we haven't had his family & friends on here protesting his innocence (fitted up by the filf innit) and what a lovely boy he is

As commented he'll be out in a few years, and given everything by the state

Wonder if his victims will enjoy seeing him strutting round the streets?

But harsher punishment would violate his human rights

I am so relieved your Mum is going to be alright! At least physically. I can't imagine what their poor old souls had to endure because of this scumbag, but my heart & prayers are being sent to you & yours! May God help Ms. Jean to have a full & speedy recovery, & for her Husband to maybe make peace with what happened. It DOES help knowing he got a LITTLE bit of what was coming to him. God bless.
