A PASSENGER had his cheek bitten and was pulled off a train before being punched and kicked to the floor on a railway platform.

Jordan Clement-Davies, 21, was blasted by a judge for his “disgraceful” part in a brawl that erupted on a service between Cadoxton and Barry.

Prosecutor Meirion Davies said the defendant and another man attacked Alexander Williams in May 2019.

He told Cardiff Crown Court: “A witness describes the victim being struck to his head.


“That was the beginning of a brawl on the train that continued on to the platform at Barry or Barry Docks station, the papers in this case aren’t clear.

“Another witness describes as being shocked. They said Mr Williams was defending himself.

“There had been a stand-off following the slamming of doors on the train and there were threats made towards the victim.

“He was pulled off the train and he was punched and kicked to the floor.

“There was a bite mark on Mr Williams’ cheek and it was bleeding.”

Clement-Davies, of Park Street, Treforest, Rhondda Cynon Taf, pleaded guilty to affray.

Mr Davies said the defendant had one previous conviction for criminal damage.

Giles Hayes, mitigating, said: “This was a distasteful incident and he is apologetic and remorseful.”

Recorder Greg Bull QC told Clement-Davies’ lawyer: “He has to drink less.”

The judge then turned to the defendant and said: “In May last year your behaviour was disgraceful and you put other passengers in fear.

“I suspect the reason for it was that you had too much to drink but of course that’s not an excuse.”

Clement-Davies was handed a 12-month community order and must complete a 10-day rehabilitation activity requirement.

He was fined £1,000 and ordered to pay £200 costs and an £85 surcharge.
