A gang of burglars who beat a university law professor until he was “utterly unrecognisable” will be sentenced today.

Paul Kohler, 55, received a fractured eye socket and left jawbone, a broken nose and bruising during the attack at his home in Wimbledon, south London.

His wife, Samantha MacArthur, 50, was also threatened by two of the four intruders on the night of August 11 last year.

Pawel Honc, 24, of no fixed abode, and Mariusz Tomaszewski, 32, of Crusoe Road, Mitcham, south London, have admitted causing Mr Kohler grievous bodily harm with intent and aggravated burglary.

Two other men, Oskar Pawlowicz, 30, of Pitcairn Road in Mitcham, and Dawid Tychon, 29, of no fixed abode, have both pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary.

Mr Kohler, in his victim statement, challenged the men to say “the real reason” why his home was targeted.

Judge Tapping, sitting at Kingston Crown Court, remanded the defendants in custody and said she would sentence them at noon today.
