Three people who attacked a bin man with a metal pole and a dog chain are facing jail.

Chevanease Clark, 19, Aaron Byron, 29, and Ramael Laird, 25, became involved in an argument with Kier employee Leo Lowe over whether his truck had hit a parked car in Lyndhurst Road, Highams Park, in April last year.

They then launched a terrifying attack on the truck driver, as two of his colleagues fled the scene.

A metal pole was used to damage Mr Lowe’s vehicle and he was hit with a dog chain.

It was reported that one of the attackers also managed to grab the truck’s steering wheel, causing the vehicle to hit parked cars.

A Kier worker alerted police and the three were arrested at the scene.

Mr Lowe suffered swelling to the right side of his face, bruising along his jaw and a bump on his head.  

Clark, 19, Byron, 29, both of Kinsfaun Road in Ilford, and Laird, of Kingthornes Road in Ilford, all previously denied assaulting the Kier employee.

However, at the start of the trial on May 19 Bryon admitted assault by beating and using threatening and abusive language with intent to cause fear.

Clark and Laird admitted using threatening language with intent to cause fear and were found guilty of assault by beating on May 20.

They are due to be sentenced at Thames Magistrates Court on June 6.
