A man in a drink and drug-fuelled rage attacked a woman with a piece of glass while she was in the bath. Daniel Jackson slashed at the woman after deciding to carry on an argument they’d been having inside a house.

The 37-year-old had earlier smashed two glass bottles after flying into a fit of anger, while also grabbing the woman’s phone and throwing it against the living room wall. A short time later, Jackson grabbed a piece of the broken glass and attacked her while she was in the bath.

Jackson was under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time when he lunged at the woman, who suffered a nasty gash to her lower back as she tried to defend herself. She then managed to get out of the bath and snatch Jackson’s phone from him to call the police, who attended the house in Mansfield and arrested him on November 6 last year.

Jackson also assaulted the same woman a few months earlier – throwing a punch at her while he was drunk during an argument in the middle of the street. The woman sustained bruises to her arm in the incident in Uttoxeter Old Road, Derby, on 2 August 2021.

Jackson, of Kingsway, Derby, appeared before Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday, May 10, where he denied any wrongdoing. A jury found him guilty of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, assault by beating and criminal damage and he was sentenced to 20 months in prison.

Detective Inspector Daniel Holloway, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Jackson’s actions were completely inexcusable and could have quite easily resulted in his victim coming to serious harm. He subjected a woman to an extremely scary ordeal after launching into a drunken rage and brandishing what was by all intents and purposes a dangerous weapon.

“Nottinghamshire Police has a zero-tolerance approach to all incidents of violence against women and girls and will always do whatever it takes to safeguard victims and ensure they get the justice they deserve. I hope that the sentencing handed out in court serves as a warning to other people that this kind of behaviour will not be tolerated and will be punished.”
