Attacker jailed

August 31 2018

POLICE have praised a survivor of domestic violence and her witnesses after a man was jailed for violence.

Peter Michael Evans, 40, appeared before Bristol Crown Court where he was sentenced to more than two years in prison for causing actual bodily harm, which he had admitted at an earlier hearing.

DC Tim Mullins, who investigated the incident in Kingswood, said: “This prosecution was only made possible by the bravery of the victim to stand up to a violent man, who had subjected her to a terrifying attack which left her hospitalised with a suspected dislocated shoulder and multiple bruising. Credit must also go to several neighbours who intervened at the time of the assault, and from the outset assisted us with the investigation.”
