Man rammed partner’s car off the road after she kicked him out
being “deliberately rammed.”
She told the court: “He pursued her with his car and rammed her off the road.”
Hungarian national Perjesi, who appeared in a secure dock flanked by two security officers, had been in a relationship with the victim for nine years and they have a child together. Mohammed Arif, mitigating, explained that on Sunday the builder was working away when his partner called him.
He said: “She told him that his property was bagged up and he needed to come to the house.
“He’s entirely shocked as to why she’s behaving like that towards him.” Mr Arif added that his client had found out that his partner was in a relationship with a man she met online.
District Judge Michael Fanning told Perjesi that the case was so serious that it must be dealt with by a crown court.
He said: “You followed this vehicle and deliberately targeted it, driving into it and ramming it into a pavement and then a wall.
“The risk to the occupier was incredibly high and that demands a period of imprisonment beyond my powers.”
Judge Fanning committed Perjesi for sentencing to Leeds Crown Court on March 6 and banned him from driving in the interim.
He remanded him into custody, telling him that if he bailed him he was satisfied that he would seek his victim out and cause her harm.
He hit the back of her car, she spun sideways and he struck her again on the side.
