A man has been jailed for two-and-a-half years following a vicious attack on a woman in Tamworth.
Emmanuel Cassie, 32, from Tamworth, went to the victim’s address during the early hours of 27 June last year.
He spat at her, threw a glass at her and punched her when he got inside. He also trashed the inside of the house by throwing a microwave, a kettle and other items from inside the kitchen.
The victim suffered broken ribs, cuts, scratches and bruising in the attack and was taken to hospital for treatment.
Thankfully, she has made a full recovery.
We were told about what happened and arrested Cassie the same day. He was charged for the offences and sent to court.
On 1 February at Stafford Crown Court, Cassie was sentenced to two-and-a-half-years in prison after pleading guilty to wounding/inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent and criminal damage to property under £5,000.
Detective Constable Wiley, who dealt with the case, said: “Supporting victims and putting a stop to violent offenders is a priority for officers across the county.
“I’m happy that we’ve been able to deliver justice and I hope this serves as a message that we will take action against those who think it’s acceptable to commit acts of violence and harm people in Staffordshire.
“We are committed to tackling violence, abuse and intimidation of women and girls (VAIWG) and we take this very seriously.
“We are also committed to targeting perpetrators of these crimes and holding them responsible for their actions. In order to prevent these happening in the first-place, work needs to be done to root out toxic misogyny and abuse in society by changing behaviours, taking responsibility and promoting equality and respect.
“With the help of our partners across the criminal justice system we are committed to delivering the toughest enforcement available to those found guilty of violence against women and girls.”
