Nephew of TV gangster Domenyk Noonan jailed for vicious kidnapping

05:04 |

The nephew of gangster and TV star Domenyk Noonan has been jailed for beating and kidnapping a man and threatening to blow off his kneecaps. Damien Noonan, 26, and two other thugs caught their victim in the street as children played nearby, then bundled him into a car and bound him with tape. Then the masked brutes threatened to shoot him in the knees and burn his fingers off with a blowtorch, a court heard. When armed police stopped the kidnappers’ vehicle in a pub car park and drew their guns Noonan fainted, it was said. A cosh and meat cleaver were found in the thugs’ car. Noonan and his co-defendants Dwayne Devaney and Forbes Edward, both 23, were all locked up for the violent daylight kidnapping. Dad-of-two Noonan who is already serving a 20-month prison sentence for drug offences and was jailed for a further six years and nine months at Preston Crown Court. The judge was told he carried out the kidnap for another unnamed offender to repay a gambling debt. Edward was also caged for six years and nine months and Devaney jailed for six years. The ‘well planned and organised’ abduction took place in Chorley, Lancashire in October last year. The defendants pulled up in a Nissan Qashqai near the victim and grabbed him. Witnesses said the masked men punched, kicked and stamped on their target until he passed out before dragging him into the car. Jacob Dyer, prosecuting, told the court: “One voice said they would blow his kneecaps off another said don’t forget the blowtorch we’ll burn his fingers off.” They drove the car from Chorley to the Hollins Bush pub in Bury where armed police acting on a tip off stopped them soon after. The officers were forced to smash the car windows and throw CS gas canisters inside to detain the men and rescue their victim who had been almost stripped naked during the struggle. The three defendants refused to speak when quizzed by detectives but later each admitted kidnapping and inflicting grievous bodily harm. The court heard that Noonan formerly of Ribble Lane, Preston, had previous convictions for violence including affray and common assault and was currently serving a sentence for a conspiracy to supply Class B drugs. Edward, of no fixed abode, also had a previous assault on his record while Devaney of Cotter Street, Manchester had no previous convictions. Their defence teams told the judge the men were remorseful and they should not be given indefinite jail sentences. Judge Stuart Baker told the defendants: “This was committed in a residential area in broad daylight and the victim was gratuitously degraded not only by your beating but by the harsh treatment he received during his detention in your car.” The court also heard the car had been stolen by another man who was not found.
