Man sentenced to 10 and a half years imprisonment for a brutal assault on his girlfriend.

Mark Power, aged 37, from Erdington, was sentenced to 10 and a half years imprisonment last week for a brutal assault on his girlfriend in December.

Police were alerted to a row between the couple on the stairwell of a multi-occupancy house in Frances Road, Erdington on the evening of Tuesday 20th December.

On arrival a woman, aged 47, was found unconscious on the floor and officers had to physically restrain her partner from stepping on her in an effort to leave.

The woman (who has agreed for this footage to be released) had been dragged by her hair from their room, viciously beaten and thrown down the stairs.

On Thursday (09/03), Power was handed the sentence after admitting grievous bodily harm with intent at Birmingham Crown Court.

Police Constable Beth Spence, from the West Midlands Police Public Protection Unit, said: “Power had little choice but to admit his guilt after CCTV footage showed the true horror of the injuries he inflicted on his then girlfriend.

“She suffered fractures to her pelvis, eye socket and the back of her head as well as multiple bruises, a split lip and wobbly teeth. She continues to recover from her ordeal.

“We hope that the lengthy sentence given to Power helps her come to terms with the assault and reassure her that he will be behind bars for some considerable time.”
