A man has been jailed after pleading guilty to a series of offences in Staffordshire and the West Midlands.
Arran Smith, aged 31, of Worcester, was sentenced to 70 months’ imprisonment at Stafford Crown Court yesterday (Thursday 16 December) for assault of a person thereby occasioning them actual bodily harm on two counts, breach of a non-molestation order on two counts, taking a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent, criminal damage and use of a motor vehicle on a road / public place without third party insurance.
He was also sentenced following three counts of domestic related assault and a breach of a suspended sentence.
Arran was due to appear at a court in the West Midlands for a domestic abuse offence against his ex-partner on Wednesday 27 October.
At around 11am, Smith confronted the sister of his ex-partner, who was driving on Church Road, Shareshill - despite being due to appear in court. He proceeded to smash the car window and punched her repeatedly whilst she was stuck in the vehicle.
He then left the scene and walked to an address, where he assaulted the mother of the victim. He kicked her in the head and stamped on her face whilst she was on the floor.
He fled the property in a Volvo and later dialed 999 to inform police that he has committed two assaults.
Smith was arrested by officers a short time after.
Detective Constable Stuart Maybury-Maiden, the officer in the case, said: "Arran is a very dangerous individual and this is a welcomed sentence for a horrible offence of domestic abuse.
“He has caused significant physical and emotional pain to the victims in this case and his actions must be punished accordingly.
“I would like to thank them for their cooperation and bravery throughout this investigation and I hope this sentence brings them the justice that they truly deserve."
