TWO previously ‘model’ citizens who turned attackers and subjected an innocent teacher to a ferocious beating are behind bars.

Burnley Crown Court heard how victim Junaid Hussain, 22, had been lured to a house in Nelson by his old school friend Zahoor Hussain.

Whilst he was there, Mohammed Owais, 23, came in and set about the victim with a metal bar, bit his right cheek, punched him in the face and headbutted him.

Zahoor Hussain then joined in the violence and stamped on his head.

The victim suffered swelling to his eye and cheekbone, a bite mark, a mark on his forehead, and a bust lip and when police arrived they found him with his jumper covered in blood.
