A man has been jailed after ramming a pregnant woman’s head against a wall and threatening to hurt her unborn baby.
Jordan Lugg-Alves warned the woman that he would punch her in the stomach during the vile attack.
The woman struggled to breathe after Lugg-Alves grabbed her by the hair and then covered her nose and mouth.
He then threw her to the ground and repeatedly slammed her face against the wall and stairs before she was finally able to break free.
Lugg-Alves, 29, became violent while arguing with the woman inside a house in Stapleford on 20 June 2021.
After trying to pull a TV from a wall, he grabbed his victim by the arm and threw her phone onto the floor, damaging it in the process.
After she managed the escape outside, he then threatened to burn her house down and threatened to hurt the unborn child.
The woman thankfully only suffered minor injuries from the attack but was later sent a sinister text from Lugg-Alves that said, ‘hope you and the baby drop dead’.
Lugg-Alves, of Surbiton Square, Aspley, appeared before Nottingham Crown Court on 3 March 2022, where he was found guilty of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, two counts of assault and criminal damage.
Appearing before Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday (29 March 2022), he was then sentenced to 21 months in prison and issued with a restraining order.
Police Staff Investigator Katie Burrell, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a vile attack that has absolutely no place in our society, so we are pleased to see that Lugg-Alves has now been handed a custodial sentence.
“His actions that day thankfully didn’t result in the woman sustaining serious injuries, or her unborn baby coming to harm.
“We are absolutely committed to ensuring that anyone who behaves in this way ends up behind bars.
“Nottinghamshire Police has a zero-tolerance approach to all incidents of violence against women and girls and will always do whatever it takes to safeguard victims and ensure they get the justice they deserve.”
