A Scarborough man has been jailed for five-and-a-half years at York Crown Court after pleading guilty to assault and false imprisonment.
31-year-old David Fraser Flinton, of Hinderwell Road, seriously injured a woman, also from Scarborough, while holding her against her will over a weekend in May 2012.
The woman was lured to a flat in the Falsgrave Road area on 11 May 2012 under false pretences, where she was then savagely and brutally assaulted by Flinton.
Flinton kicked and punched her, and as she attempted to leave the flat, violently grabbed her by the hair and dragged her back into the flat. The woman reported the attack to the police three days later.
The woman was left with a fractured arm, fractured sternum and severe bruising to her face - as well as a blood clot around her eye. She still has scarring and weakness in her arm from the attack.
Flinton was charged on 14 May 2012, and pleaded guilty to both offences yesterday and was sentenced on the same day.
He has since been jailed for four years for assault and 18 months for false imprisonment, with the sentences to run consecutively.
