Portsmouth hammer attack Shearer Road

A man will be sentenced today for a hammer attack on a teenage girl in Portsmouth.

The 17-year-old was left with a serious head injury, described as life-changing, after being targeted at a house on Shearer Road in Fratton in April.

Police cordoned off the property while they investigated, with forensic officers at the scene.

Officers were called at 6:58pm on Monday 11 April 2016 to a report of a serious assault inside an address on Shearer Road.

29-year-old James Hemming, from Cross Street, admitted wounding with intent. He's scheduled to be sentenced at Portsmouth Crown Court this afternoon.

The attack is thought to be possibly linked to the sex trade.
