Thugs decapitated dog and left head on door in ‘revenge’ attack after pub row

Two thugs have been jailed for 19 months for decapitating a Yorkshire Terrier and leaving its head on a door handle, after a pub row got out of hand

Jailed: Ashley Grundy, 31

Two thugs have been jailed for 19 months after they decapitated a Yorkshire Terrier and left its head on a door handle in an act of revenge following a pub row.

Ashley Grundy, 31, and Steven Robinson, 39, from Lancashire, chopped Bailey the dog’s head off before dumping his body. The head was later discovered by a horrified child.

The evil duo had earlier been involved in a spat with a fellow customer, who was threatened by Grundy at the Baron’s Rest pub in Astley Village, near Chorley on May 19, 2018.

In the early hours of the following morning, they drove to the victim’s house, stole their pet and drove back to the pub where they carried out the gruesome act.

After dumping the dog’s body at the pub they left the head on the door handle of the victim’s mother’s house, who made the grisly discovery along with her child.

Police launched an investigation following the incident and carried out extensive enquiries to bring the pair to justice.

After trawling through CCTV footage, officers spotted images showing Robinson discarding an item into a bush, which was wrapped in a car. The item was later found to be Bailey’s decapitated body.

Grundy of Preston Street, Kirkham and Robinson, of Devonshire Street, Lancaster were jailed at Preston Crown Court for criminal damage and outraging public decency.

Sgt Paul Harrison, of Lancashire Police said: “This was a lengthy investigation which involved a number of officers.

“Officers sat through hours of CCTV and had to go through distressing incidents to compare the DNA from Bailey’s head and carcass to the DNA of the blood found in and on the vehicle that Grundy and Robinson were using.

“I’d like to thank all the officers involved who worked tirelessly to bring this investigation to a conclusion.

“I now hope that this can give some closure to the victim who lost a beloved pet due to the barbaric act of these two individuals.”

The Crown Prosecutor described the incident as an act of revenge and intimidation which was intended to ’cause maximum fear to the victims’.
