A man who lashed out at his partner in a fit of jealousy - kicking and punching her, as well as threatening to burn her hair off - has been jailed for three years.
Leon Brazil, 40, of Clydesdale Biggs Road in Wisbech, admitted assault causing actual bodily harm (ABH) and assault by beating when he was due to face trial earlier this year.
He was arrested in December last year following an attack on his then partner the month before.
On Wednesday, June 13 Brazil appeared at Peterborough Crown Court and was sentenced to three years in prison for assault causing actual bodily harm (ABH) and three months for assault by beating, to run concurrently.
Detective Constable Amanda Pickering said: “Brazil is an extremely violent individual who despite having a number of convictions has not changed his ways.
“The victim’s injuries were truly horrific – no-one should have to go through that and suffer the pain that she did.
“I hope that over the next few years during his time in prison it will give him chance to reflect on his actions.”
