Damian Robinson, 20, tried to gouge his ex-girlfriend’s eyes out out of jealousy after finding a text from another guy on her phone. He reportedly punched and strangled the woman who is also his daughter’s mother.
On the night of the attack, Robinson, his ex and a group of friends had a night out before going back to her house where he found the text and assaulted her. The assailant has been jailed for seven years after pleading guilty to wounding with intent, breaching a non-molestation order and criminal damage. Robinson gave himself up 3 days later after the remorseful act.
The assault had a devastating impact on the victim, having flashbacks and nightmares that have her waking up in a cold sweat. The court has given Robinson a restraining order preventing him to contact his ex.
