A woman from High Wycombe who attacked a neighbour with a piece of wood has been convicted of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
On Tuesday 15th November, at Aylesbury Crown Court, a 56 year old woman of Buckingham Drive, High Wycombe pleaded guilty to one count of assault occasioning ABH. She was sentenced to 35 weeks’ imprisonment.
On Sunday 16th October 2016 this year the convicted woman assaulted her neighbour, who following the attack had collapsed in a shop in Micklefield Road, High Wycombe. The victim had injuries to the face, and stated that he had been attacked by the 56 year old woman with a piece of wood.
The victim had received a number of deep scratches to his back, bruising to his legs and arms, a cut and blackened eye from having been punched, kicked and hit with the piece of wood.
The 56 year old woman was charged with the offence on Sunday 16th October 2016 and pleaded guilty during her first court appearance.
Investigating officer, PC Mark Palethorpe based at High Wycombe police station, said: ‘The victim has sustained a large amount of injuries throughout a prolonged attack from [the convicted woman].
The victim has shown true courage in supporting the police investigation. I feel that the Judge has summed up the defendant very well describing her as a ‘…thug and a bully’.
I am extremely happy with the outcome and as a result the victim will now be safe.‘
