A man who carried out three separate assaults, including attacking a man in a busy town centre, has been jailed.
Ashley Williams, 36, launched the first attack against a man in Huntingdon High Street at about 10am on March 30 last year.
He ran up to the victim and began punching and kicking him, stopping only when he was pulled away by someone else.
Officers arrived and Williams attended a voluntary interview where he made a full confession, but claimed the victim had previously threatened him.
Then, at just after 6pm on December 8 last year, he punched another man repeatedly in the face at a property in Ermine Street, Huntingdon, following a dispute.
