Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary

A man has been sentenced to 20 months imprisonment today (Feb 25) after an ongoing family feud spilled out onto the streets of Southampton.

Dalvinder Singh, 31 of Nichols Road, was found guilty of violent disorder following a trial at Southampton Crown Court.

The court heard that Singh set upon two men in St Albans Road on August 10, 2018, in relation to an ongoing feud between two families.

The prosecution told the jury that Singh used a metal broom handle to assault the two men on Derby Road.

During the trial Singh’s defence told the court he acted in retaliation for his car being damaged.

Satnam Singh Roath, 32 and Shakti Singh Roath, 32, both of Alfred Street, Southampton, were also on trial for the same offence. The jury found them not guilty.

Chief Inspector Phil Lamb said: “This was a violent incident that broke out in a residential area in Southampton and we believe many residents saw what happened.

“We understand that for some people, there is a concern that telling the police about something that is going on the community might put them at risk or make them vulnerable.

“But this is where people live with their families and should be safe. This level of disorder in our communities is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.”
