Leona Lewis’ attacker has appeared in court today and is destined to be detained under the Mental Health Act for the foreseeable future.
X Factorbeauty at a London book signing in October pleaded guilty to common assault and was sentenced to remain in hospital for ‘an indeterminate period’.
The Press Association reports that during the trial at London’s City of Westminster Magistrates Court, the judge was told the 29 year-old attacker shouted “gotcha” as he planted the punch on the Bleeding Love singer.
It was stated by prosecutors that Leona suffered whiplash symptoms and redness to the face after the unprovoked attack.
A witness statement from Lewis was read out in court and the singer said: "I feel completely devastated by this attack..."
She added: "Now I am very frightened about going out in public and I don't know where the next attack will come from and if this will be more serious than what has just happened."
Schizophrenic Kowalczyk was addressed by District Judge Howard Riddle who said of the attack: "This is what happens when you don't take your medication. A woman is now devastated."
