Victim of Lottery Theft Lucky to Be Alive

Scaffolder Patrick Bealsey is the head of his work’s lottery syndicate, and last year had winnings worth £11,000 in his home when two armed men burst into his home, demanding money. The syndicate leader from Grimsby took a brutal kicking, the thieves took £11,000 but have now been sentenced to thirty years between them for the violent crime.

The super fit grandfather was hurt so badly that he is no longer able to play his favourite game of squash, but he says he has taken up cycling and refuses to bow down, saying he’s trying to get on with his life for the sake of his children and grandchildren. Bealsey suffered multiple injuries in the attack, including a head wound that needed stitches, broken ribs and a punctured lung. He was in hospital for five days, needed two months off work after the attack and is still reliant on painkillers.

Now the thieves have been sentenced. Borge Bradwell, 40, and Daniel Charnock, 38, who carried out the attack were each jailed for 12 and a half years. Gavin Dyball, 35, who remained outside the home keeping watch was sentenced to five years and 10 months.

It’s a shocking crime and not really the kind of thing you expect when you set up a lottery syndicate. Thankfully, these violent thieves are now off the street and Patrick and his family can get on with their lives after what must have been a very traumatic attack in his own home. It’s not known what happened to the cash that was stolen, but we’re sure that’s the least of Patrick’s worries now that he’s getting back to good health. As lottery crimes go, this one was pretty awful and for something that is, in all honesty, a pretty small sum of cash.
