Community work order after attack in Lowestoft
A MAN who punched a Lowestoft kebab shop worker has been ordered to do 200 hours' unpaid work in the community.
Fikri Koc, 37, had permission to go into a private area of the Harbour Kebab house in Pier Terrace, to pick up a flat key, but as he did so he was challenged by employee Dana Ali, Ipswich Crown Court heard.
Koc, who had been drinking, became involved in a scuffle with Mr Ali and both men ended up on the floor.
Robert Sadd, prosecuting, said Koc left the shop but returned and punched Mr Ali.
Others became involved in the attack on Mr Ali and he suffered three broken ribs, scratches on his neck, swelling to his head and a cut mouth.

Mr Sadd said Mr Ali had been kicked and punched by other people after Koc's involvement had ended, so it was not possible to attribute any particular injury to the defendant who admitted throwing one punch.
Koc, of St John's Road, Saxmundham, admitted assault causing actual bodily harm and was ordered to do 200 hours' unpaid work in the community. He was also ordered to pay �200 compensation and �100 costs.
