A man has been jailed for a vicious attack on his former partner in which he pulled out two of her teeth with his hands. Sohaib Younis broke a restraining order when he went inside the woman’s home and tried to resume their relationship last year. A struggle ensued and Younis told the victim he would ‘kill her’ if she called the police, then fled the scene, Bradford Crown Court heard. Younis returned a week later and entered her house but became angry when she refused to get into bed with him. The court heard he then launched a brutal assault and punched his ex several times in the face, dragged her into the living room by her hair and kicked her in the face. He then picked up a pair of scissors and stabbed her in the left side of her head. He refused to leave and lunged at her with a screwdriver causing a cut above her eye, prosecutor Nadim Bashir said. Ms Bashir told the court Younis, from Halifax, West Yorkshire, pinned the woman down, put his hand into her mouth and pulled out two of her bottom teeth – causing immense pain.
She tried to escape through the bathroom window but he attacked her again, squeezing her throat, the court heard. When he found out that the police were looking for him, he punched the woman again and hit her over the head with a clock. The defendant was arrested three days later and claimed to be confused about events. He said he had stopped taking his psychosis medication and was using crack cocaine. Younis admitted charges of unlawful wounding and breaching a restraining order and on Friday he was sentenced to four years in prison. Judge Jonathan Rose said it was ‘merely fortuitous’ that more serious injuries were not caused to the victim and described Younis as a ‘dangerous man’. – metro.co.uk
