A man's been jailed for 12 years for trying to kill a Luton shopkeeper, in the same place her husband was murdered seven years ago.
Nirupa Patel, 56, was slashed in the face with a shard of glass during a sustained attack by Tomasz Jaworski on Christmas Eve in Moon's Newsagents in Park Street, Luton.
Mrs Patel's husband Jashbai, was stabbed to death at Moon's newsagents, in Luton in 2009.
Jaworski, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to the attempted murder of Mrs Patel and two counts of causing actual bodily harm.
This was an abhorrent attack by an extremely dangerous individual and I’m pleased that he will be locked away for a long time.
The woman endured a sustained, violent attack, which will leave more than just physical scars, but I hope that today’s sentence can allow her some comfort.
During the attack, Jaworski slashed the woman with a shard of glass, beat her over the head as well as grabbing her around the neck, attempting to strangle her, and kicking and punching her.
A man who sexually assaulted two boys in Cambridge and a girl in the USA has been jailed for 16 years.
Benjamin Morris, who is 32, was arrested in December 2014, after allegations were made of him sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl while visiting the USA earlier that year.
During the investigation into the offences committed against the girl, officers identified two Cambridge boys who had also been victims.
Morris, of Bourne Road in Cambridge, befriended the boys at an after school club in 2004 when they were aged eight and nine. He began to babysit and sexually abused them on numerous occasions over a six year period.
Morris was sentenced to 16 years in prison and placed on the sex offenders register for life.
Morris abused his position of trust and showed no remorse for his actions, blaming the victims for what happened.
I hope this sentence will provide some form of closure for the victims and allow them to move on with the rest of their lives.
