Men jailed for robbery and attack at local pub

TWO men who bashed and robbed a man outside the Brunswick Hotel have been jailed for the attack, which took place after the victim won $600 on the pokies.

Dylan Eric Warcon and Travis Roy Anderson dragged the 24-year-old man outside on July 18, 2014, and took his car keys while kicking and punching him.

Judge Terry Martin said it was brazen, protracted violence.

"Each of you have a significant problem with illicit drugs," he said to Warcon and Anderson.

"Your criminal histories are reflective of drug abuse."

He said it was particularly concerning that Warcon was high on ice at the time.

Anderson was on parole at the time of the offence and was returned to custody and due to finish his sentence on October 2.

Warcon, who was on bail at the time, was also returned to custody and due to finish his sentence on September 4, 2016.

Anderson was sentenced to three years' jail to be served cumulatively on top of his current sentence, and will be eligible for parole on September 3, 2016.

Warcon was also sentenced to three years for the robbery with an extra month added concurrently to his sentence for a summary charge of obstructing police, with the 277 days of time already served taken into account.

He will be eligible for parole on January 20, 2016.
