A man has been sentenced to seven years in prison after stabbing his partner at the time in an incident earlier this year.
Christopher Kemp, aged 43, of Hartington Road in Stockton, inflicted eight stab wounds and lacerations when he attacked the woman with a kitchen knife in the incident on Friday 30th June in Middlesbrough.
The woman pleaded with Kemp to allow her to seek medical treatment and was seen by hospital staff, where she managed to disclose what happened whilst in a place of safety.
Christopher Kemp made off from the area but he was located by officers whilst running away from his home.
Kemp pleaded guilty to section 18 GBH with intent and was sentenced at Teesside Crown Court on Monday 27th November.
He was handed a life-long restraining order preventing him from contacting the victim and a 7 year custodial sentence.
Investigating officer, Detective Constable Adam Highfield, said: “The victim in this case has been subjected to a brutal, prolonged attack and has been left with serious injuries. The physical and psychological impacts will remain with her for some time to come, but she should be strongly commended for her courage and bravery in helping to bring her perpetrator to justice.”
