A man has been jailed for three on years on his last day of his trial at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday 12 November 2019.

Reuben Commons, 22 years of no fixed address.

He was convicted of actual bodily harm after repeatedly punching a woman's body and hit her with a metal hoover attachment.

Her head was also held under water in a bath. She was also previously strangled and was threatened with an iron.

The sentencing relates to an incident on 2 April 2018 where Commons assaulted a woman in the early hours at a house in Bestwood, Nottingham.

After a period of evading the police, Commons was subsequently located and arrested on 11 October 2018.

He was subsequently charged with this offence in February 2019.

Detective Constable Michael Powis said: "Although this attack was particularly gratuitous, the strong sentence reflects the fact that domestic violence cases are taken seriously both by the police and the courts.

"The sentence will hopefully give confidence to those who are experiencing domestic violence to seek help from the police."
