Peterborough: Violent boyfriend Jailed
A man from Peterborough, who fractured his ex-girlfriend's eye socket in a voilent attack, has been jailed for almost 3 years.
Kingsley Okorodudu, 41, of Saltmarsh, Orton Malborne, Peterborough, launched a terrifying attack on the 23-year-old following an argument at a house in the city at about 10.30pm on October 12th.
He smashed her head into a wall before punching her in the face. Three of the victim's friends tried to stop the attack and take him out of the house, but he broke free and hit her over the head with a picture frame, pushed her to the floor and repeatedly kicked her.
During the attack she tried to call police, but he took her mobile phone. He also assaulted one of her friends who had tried to stop the attack.
Okorodudu pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with intent, robbery and actual bodily harm.
He was jailed for a total of 32 months at Peterborough Crown Court yesterday (Thursday) . He was also given a restraining order banning him from contacting the victim.
Detective Constable Liam Sweeney, who investigated, said: "This was a nasty attack which caused very serious injuries to the victim.
"Domestic violence is unacceptable and offenders will be put before the courts.”
