A man who terrorised his ex partner has been jailed for over two years after admitting to assault and affray.
John Broadhurst-Dodd (26) pleaded guilty at Chester Crown Court on Wednesday 11th April 2012 and was sentenced to two years and three months.
In the early hours of Sunday 1 January 2012 Broadhurst-Dodd formerly of Heysham Road in Southport, went round to his ex partner′s house in Davenport Avenue in Nantwich twice attempting to gain entry.
He came back a third time and smashed her bedroom window with a rock before kicking it through with his foot.
Her friend, who was in the room at the time, tried to stop Broadhurst-Dodd getting in through the window but Broadhurst-Dodd attacked both of them with a rock, leaving them with head and facial injuries which required hospital treatment.
Broadhurst-Dodd had already been served an Harassment Order and had admitted another assault on her three months earlier.
DC Paul Lovick from the Crewe Public Protection Unit, said: "What makes this even more sickening is that Broadhurst-Dodd could not have been sure that children were in this bedroom yet he still smashed his way in causing shards of glass to fly into the room. He then carried out an attack which left his two victims covered in blood and deeply shocked by their ordeal.
"We will not tolerate domestic abuse of any kind and are determined to put a stop to anyone who thinks this is acceptable behaviour. The affect it has on those who are victim to this is tremendous and deeply traumatising.
Specially trained officers work closely with the victim and support agencies to ensure they are getting the help they need while we bring to the offender to justice.
"I only hope Broadhurst-Dodd takes the time behind bars to reflect on what could have happened if children had been in the room at the time of his violent and shocking attack."
