A jealous woman attacked her ex-girlfriend and then viciously knifed a security officer who arrived to help. Aimee Ellard next lashed out at a police constable who arrested her, describing him as a black b****** and black c****, and screaming: Get that n****** off me! The 26-year-old cried quietly in the dock as she was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison at Liverpool Crown Court.
Ben Jones, prosecuting, said Ellard had lost her temper after believing that her former partner Jessica Edgar-Brown had been unfaithful in their volatile relationship. Ms Edgar-Brown rang 999, informing police that Ellard was on the way to her home on Pembroke Court, Birkenhead, on February 10, before taking off her rings and preparing herself for a fight . Judge Rachel Smith said Ms Edgar-Brown was confident she d got the better of their bust-up, and left the scene, before realising moments later that she d suffered cuts to her right breast and shoulder blade .
Thomas Rose, who worked as a security guard at the supported living accommodation, tried to stop Ellard from following her ex-partner, but she stabbed him to the upper body.
He was rushed to the major trauma ward at Aintree Hospital where it was discovered he d suffered a collapsed lung and had lost a lot of blood. Judge Smith said that the rapid treatment he d received had saved his life. Mr Rose, the court said, needed four pints of blood to be pumped into him following the shock attack.
PC Khalid Mahmood came across Ellard at the hospital while she was lying on the ground, crying in pain . It was at this point she racially abused him and was aggressive towards other medical staff. The constable then arrested her for the attack on Ms Edgar-Brown.
Her barrister, Gareth Bellis, told the court: This was a nasty offence including vile language . She is clear of any alcohol addictions and now is a very different person who attends court today.
She is taking every possible advantage of the courses and help while on remand in Styal Prison.
Mr Rose s injuries meant he was unable to go on a plane or go scuba diving, and now holds his sides when sneezing, coughing or laughing, and feels vulnerable and exposed. In a victim impact statement, he said: I m very wary of certain people and if I see boisterous people it makes me nervous.
Ellard, whose address was listed as Styal Prison, in Cheshire, pleaded guilty to wounding her former partner, racially aggravated harassment of the police officer, and intentionally wounding Mr Rose.
A Hull security guard had a very awkward confrontation after appearing on Channel 4 dating show Naked Attraction. Sam, 31, was a contestant on this week s episode of the show. Naked Attraction does exactly what you d expect from the title as the contestants naked bodies are revealed before their faces . They are eventually whittled down one by one by a potential partner who is deciding who to go on a date with.
Sam was competing against 55-year-old Roderick
Sam made it to the final two participants being chosen by psychology student Alesia, who eventually selected him over 55-year-old writer, Roderick.
After he was chosen, the Hull man said: It s given me something to smile about . I never expected to win.
It got to the two and she said my name, I couldn t believe it. His new date described Sam as having an amazing body and said he just got better and better and better after the screen went up to reveal his face.
Sam bared all on the show
The new couple walked off screen holding hands but what happened next didn t quite go to plan. The date got off to a slow start with the conversation very stilted.
Alesia got the ball rolling by asking Sam to tell her about himself. He said: I m 31, born and raised in Hull, that s about it really . Not much of a back story.
When she asked him what the city is like, he replied: It s just home to me.
The couple walked away hand-in-hand
She tried to get a bit more out of him, saying: When I think of Yorkshire, I think of grass, animals
But Sam simply laughed and replied: There s buildings, brick buildings. During a break in the date, she told the camera: He s not talking, I m not getting anything from him . I m bored out my head . It s just bland . There s no I dunno.
However, he had a different view, saying: She s smiling, the conversation s flowing, so she s enjoying it hopefully. They moved on to another bar at Alesia s suggestion to try and get a bit more bubbly and she said the change of atmosphere made a difference.
Sam and Alesia were laughing as the date improved
I m warming to him, she told the camera. And it seems Sam agreed.
Yeah, there s been flirty chat, smiles, winks, that sort of thing, he said . There could be something there, I think.
Sam was then seen moving in for a kiss and the couple left the bar.
But six weeks later, it seemed it was a different story. The couple said an awkward hello, before Alesia said: It s just a bit weird isn t it, because we kind of clicked . You kissed me and I ve not heard anything back – I don t know how to take that, to be honest. He responded by saying: I don t know what to reply to that, I kind of went with the flow and then that was it for me, I m afraid.
It was an awkward meeting for Sam and Alesia after their date
For me, it s the distance, where we live and it s not gonna work for me so I thought why keep in touch?
Alesia said: Just be polite and say that, seeing as though you do have my number, you could have said it s not gonna work . We re just not compatible, you know.
The meeting ended with Sam saying: We didn t quite click.
Sam’s appearance on the show certainly got people talking on Twitter.
