A 35-year-old man has been jailed for six years for a violent assault on a woman in Nottingham which left her with serious injuries.

Jabbram Hussain, formerly of Coniston Avenue, was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court today (Wednesday 7 February 2018) after a jury found him guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent and common assault following a seven-day trial.

The court heard that armed officers attended an address during the early hours of 4 August 2017 after Hussain reported that six men were there with firearms.

They found a woman inside lying on the floor next to a large pool of blood. She was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre having suffered deep cuts to her face, arms and neck, with glass sticking out of her wounds.

The court was told her injuries were caused by a broken drinking glass struck repeatedly against her.

At the beginning of the trial, Hussain admitted causing the injuries but denied intending to cause serious injury. However, the jury saw through this and found him guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent.

The jury also found Hussain guilty of common assault, after he kicked a security guard in the face whilst being treated for minor injuries sustained in the attack.

Hussain was also sentenced for possession of cannabis and cocaine after drugs were recovered from his home address. He previously pleaded guilty to this offence.

Speaking after his sentencing Detective Sergeant Stuart Temple said: "This was an appalling crime which left the woman with horrific injuries. This police investigation was complex but thankfully supported by the Crown Prosecution Service, NHS and other partner agencies. The victim in this case, didn't want to pursue the matter, but together with the cps, we felt that the crime was so severe that Hussain needed to be brought to justice. We’re pleased we were able to bring it to a strong and positive conclusion which has seen Hussain being locked up for a lengthy period."
