Woman jailed after women assaulted in Gun Hill
Main article content
A woman who viciously assaulted a woman in Gun Hill has been jailed for 36 weeks.
On the afternoon of 18 April, the victim – a woman in her 40s – came out of her house after hearing a commotion in the street when she was attacked by Zoe Jenkins.
Jenkins tackled her to the floor and repeatedly punched her in the back.
Jenkins – who was returning from a barbeque at friend’s house and was heavily intoxicated – was pulled away by friends and neighbours.
Jenkins set upon another woman who came outside to see what was happening. Again she was pulled away by friends and neighbours.
She continued shouting in the street until police arrived and arrested her.
Jenkins, 30, of Hill Top, Gun Hill, was sentenced at Coventry Magistrates’ Court last week after previously being found guilty of assault, using threatening behaviour with intent to cause fear of violence and being drunk in charge of a child.
She was also found to have breached the terms of suspended sentenced handed down in 2020 after she was convicted of criminal damage, public order and hate crime offences.
Sergeant Adam Skelsey from North Warwickshire Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “This was a cowardly attack. Thankfully, the victim’s injuries were not as serious as they might have been.
“Jenkins showed no remorse throughout this case and put the victim through the ordeal of a trial.
“Warwickshire Police will not tolerate this kind of offending and will do everything in our power to bring offenders to justice.”
