Jivanta Justin Banu, 21, led a ‘predatory and cowardly’ attack on the delivery man after repeatedly beating the man in Mooroobool near Cairns, Queensland.

The victim tried to flee on his bicycle, but Banu continued to chase the man who called for help from two other men.
But unbeknownst to him, the two were with Banu, and all three hit and kicked him again.
Banu stole the victim’s watch before leaving him with a broken nose, deep cuts to his face and black eyes.
Judge Leanne Clare described the bashing Tuesday in the Cairns District Court as ‘brutal’.
‘You were the initiator, you were the one who stopped him. You took the first blows, ”Judge Clare said.
He reminds on his face of what you did to him. He’s traumatized and scared, ”Judge Clare said.
The victim was unable to eat after the attack and had limited mobility, the Cairns court heard.
The next morning, Banu also stole keys to a car after breaking into a house.
Banu was sentenced to four years in prison and pleaded guilty to company theft with personal assault, theft, unlawful use of a car and entering buildings to commit a crime.
He will be available for parole on July 26 this year and has already served 308 days in pre-trial detention.
