Man ad­mits to at­tack­ing cou­ple in their home

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A HARE­FIELD man who at­tacked a man and a woman in a home has ad­mit­ted ac­tual bod­ily harm at court.

Thomas Jor­dan, 27, of Bank­side Close, kicked the vic­tims’ front door open in Morse Close, Hare­field, at 1.30am on Novem­ber 9 last year, Uxbridge Mag­is­trates Court was told on June 2.

In forc­ing his way in he in­jured the male vic­tim, who was stand­ing be­hind the door. Jor­dan then went to the kitchen where he took a knife from a drawer and held it to the man’s throat.

He shouted at the man and the woman, who were known to him, be­fore hit­ting the man over the head and punch­ing the woman sev­eral times.

Jor­dan then left the house and po­lice were im­me­di­ately called.

He was ar­rested later that day in con­nec­tion with the in­ci­dent and charged with wound­ing. The male vic­tim was treated for head and foot in­juries at the Royal Free Hos­pi­tal and has since made a good re­cov­ery.

The woman did not need hos­pi­tal treat­ment af­ter the attack.

DC Mark Henry said: “The pros­e­cu­tion case against Jor­dan has been so strong and over­whelm­ing that he was given no other op­tion then to plead guilty to the attack. There is no place in Hilling­don for vi­o­lent of­fend­ers like Jor­dan. Ev­ery vic­tim re­ceives the high­est level of sup­port, re­spect and un­der­stand­ing and we urge any­one who has been ef­fected by any type of abuse to con­tact us im­me­di­ately.”

Jor­dan was re­manded in cus­tody and will be sen­tenced on June 30 at Uxbridge Mag­is­trates Court.
