Teens torture boy and burn his genitals with lighter – after he spills drink
Christopher Pyatt-Pierce, 18, who arrived at the flat just before midnight, joined the onslaught and punched the teen several times.
His sister Lucy Pyatt-Pierce, 18, was said to have instigated the assault, goading the boys to lash out and filmed it all unfold on her mobile phone.
The boy was eventually freed around 5am after being stripped of his clothes, and found wandering the streets in just a T-shirt.
All three offenders were arrested from their home addresses on October 1 and charged with wounding and false imprisonment.
On Friday, Ashton, now of Hinckley, Leics., was jailed for eight years after being found guilty of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and false imprisonment.
“All the windows and doors were locked in the house; he had no way to escape”
Detective Constable Sarah Proctor
Lucy Pyatt-Pierce, of Stirchley, Birmingham, was caged for four years having also been found guilty on the same charges.
Christopher Pyatt-Pierce, of Perry Barr, Birmingham, was given a two year sentence having been found guilty on the lesser charge of wounding plus false imprisonment.
Detective Constable Sarah Proctor, of West Midlands Police, said after the case: “This was a brutal, degrading attack on a 15-year-old boy that was sparked by something as innocuous as spilling a drink on the floor.
“What followed was a prolonged and terrifying ordeal for this young man in which he feared for his own life.
“All the windows and doors were locked in the house; he had no way to escape and none of the three intervened at any stage to say ‘enough is enough’.
“I wish the victim well in his continued recovery from this episode which understandably has had a significant psychological impact.”
