A man was arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly kicking his girlfriend in the abdomen in order to cause her to miscarry her unborn baby, prosecutors in the United Kingdom said.
Now, 20-year-old Simon Easterbrook of Devon, has been sentenced to serve 21 months in prison after being convicted of assault.
The Exeter Crown Court heard that Easterbrook was furious when his girlfriend, who was 18 weeks pregnant, broke off their relationship.
In revenge, he went to her home and destroyed all her clothes with bleach. He then punched and kicked her repeatedly in the abdomen while shouting that she doesn’t deserve to have his baby.
As she laid curled up on the kitchen floor, Easterbrook pulled a knife from his pocket and stabbed her in the arm. After the attack, Easterbrook ran home and told his mother that he is in trouble.
Easterbrook pleaded guilty to causing bodily harm, criminal damage and possessing a small amount of cannabis.
