A Blidworth man who punched and stabbed a woman at a house has been jailed for 18 months and given a five year restraining order.

Jarvis Hamilton, 22, of Aberconway Street, pleaded guilty to actual bodily harm, criminal damage and harassment causing fear of violence.

He was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday (18 May 2018).

In March this year, Hamilton got into a house, punched the victim in the face, picked up a knife from the kitchen and stabbed her in the chest. He also damaged her phone beyond repair leaving her without means to get help. But luckily, she was able to alert a neighbour and Hamilton was arrested a short time later, still in Rainworth.

The woman was treated in hospital on the day and made a full physical recovery.

Detective Constable Julia Mahan, of Nottinghamshire Police’s Public Protection, said: “This was a totally unprovoked attack and the consequences could have been far more serious. The victim has been very brave throughout this process and although, Hamilton showed no remorse, his guilty plea has given some comfort.

“We hope the restraining order gives the victim further peace of mind, even after the custodial sentence has been served.”
