Man Jailed After Scarborough Pub Assault

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 4:42pm 14th February 2020. (Updated at 11:05am 17th February 2020)

A man's been sentenced after the death of a man in a Scarborough pub.

James Arthur Collinson, 38 of  Bridlington has been jailed for six years with an extended period of four years on probation, after the death of 59-year-old John Glenn from Scarborough.

Collinson was jailed at Leeds Crown Court on 14 February after pleading guilty of the manslaughter of Mr Glenn.

The incident happened at the Golden Last pub on Eastborough, Scarborough on 1 September 2019, just after 6pm. An altercation occurred in the pub and Collinson punched Mr Glenn before punching him again as he was leaving the pub, a blow which knocked him unconscious.

Ambulance crews attempted to resuscitate Mr Glenn before he was taken to Scarborough District Hospital and placed into a medically induced coma. Mr Glenn did not respond to treatment and sadly passed away on 27 September 2019.

Collinson was remanded in custody and today appeared via video link from HMP Hull at Leeds Crown Court, where he was sentenced.

Investigating Officer, North Yorkshire Police’s Detective Inspector Jonathan Sygrove, said:

“Collinson has a long history of violence and assault and his sentence clearly reflects the seriousness of his most recent offence which resulted in the tragic loss of a man’s life. His actions have caused a huge amount of pain for John Glenn’s family and this is something they will have to deal with for the rest of their lives.”

Mr Glenn’s family ask that their privacy is respected.
