Brothers jailed after attack in Tilbury

Two brothers have been jailed for twenty years after attacking a man in Tilbury.

Ferrell Falzon from Clacton and brother Maison Falzon from Tilbury were jailed for nine and eleven years respectively for their part in a 2021 assault and for causing grievous bodily harm with intent when they appeared at Southend Crown Court on Tuesday February 8.

Officers were called to a fight involving weapons, in Malta Road shortly before 5.05pm on Friday August 13.

A man aged in his 20s, was taken to hospital by air ambulance after he sustained injuries that were considered life threatening at the time.

The two men were arrested on suspicion of attempted murder later that same day and were both charged and remanded to appear at Southend Magistrate’s Court.

Nineteen-year-old Ferrell Falzon, of Diana Way, Clacton, appeared on Monday 16 August, also charged with possession of an offensive weapon.

Twenty-six-year-old Maison Falzon, of Leicester Road, Tilbury, appeared on Tuesday August 17, also charged with dangerous driving.

Both men denied attempted murder but pleaded guilty to an alternative charge of causing grievous bodily harm with intent when they appeared at Basildon Crown Court on Tuesday October 12.

Inspector Rowan Perrior, investigating, said: “This incident happened in a public street at a time when ordinary members of the public were making their way home. It would have been extremely frightening for anyone to witness it, and I’d like to thank those people who came forward and told us what they saw, which undoubtedly played a key part in this case.

“There is no place for such violence, here in Essex.

“Ferrell and Maison Falzon have admitted their parts in this serious incident, and have been jailed for their acts of violence.”

Maison Falzon was also handed 12 months for dangerous driving, to run concurrently.

The court ordered the charges of attempted murder were to lie on file for both men.
