Rushcliffe man jailed after assaulting woman whilst on bail

A violent offender who assaulted a woman while he was still on bail for two other attacks has been jailed.

Martin Slack, aged 31, threw a TV at his victim after entering her home without permission on the evening of 21 January this year.

The screen caused injuries to the woman’s face and one of her feet.

Slack, who was already on bail for another attack against a young woman and a police officer, then fled the address but was arrested a few hours later by police.

Two months previously, on 15 November, Slack assaulted two police officers as he was arrested for a separate attack on a young woman.

He later pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm, assault by beating, two counts of criminal damage and two counts of assaulting an emergency worker.

Both incidents took place in Ollerton.

Appearing at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday, Slack, of Southfield Grove, Bingham, was jailed for a total of two-and-a-half-years. He was also handed a restraining order that prevents him from approaching this victim in the future.

Detective Constable Jonathan Reid, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Slack is a violent offender who launched a series of inexcusable physical attacks – three of which were aimed at females.

“His behaviour on both occasions was absolutely disgraceful and I am pleased he has now been held to account.

“This kind of violence is utterly inexcusable and will always attract a very firm police response.”
