Adrian Moore jailed for assault of ex-partner in Southport

Merseyside Police have welcomed the sentencing of a man who has been jailed for four years after he was caught on CCTV attacking his then partner.

Adrian Paul Moore, 33 years, of Baker Street, Huyton admitted attempted Section 18 wounding after assaulting his ex-partner in a hotel in Southport at around 3am on 27 December.

He was jailed on Friday (27 April 2018) at Liverpool Crown Court for four years for the sustained attack which took place in the lobby of The Bold Hotel, and was caught on the hotel’s CCTV.

He was recorded punching and kicking the victim to the head and torso, stamping on her head a shutting a door against her head.

Speaking after the case, Detective Constable Peter Parkinson said help was out there for victims of domestic abuse and urged sufferers to use the Victim Care Merseyside service.

He said: “Moore subjected his former partner to a brutal and sustained assault – she is extremely fortunate that no serious or lasting injuries were caused.

“This incident has had a profound effect on the victim and she is still trying to come to terms with what happened on that night.”

DC Parkinson added: “No one should ever have to suffer in silence, or feel that they are alone. There is a great deal of professional advice and support out there for people in unhappy, unhealthy, confrontational relationships and these are available free of charge.

“Whether you are a man or a woman, you should not have to suffer or endure verbal or physical abuse from a partner or relative. Victim Care Merseyside can tell you when to get the right kind of support for you and I would urge anyone experiencing these kind of issues not to suffer in silence but instead speak out.

“There is no place in our communities for people who commit such violent and horrendous crime against their partner and this sentence reflects the severity of the offence and how seriously police and the courts take it. While it cannot undo what has been done, I hope the sentence given today will in time give the victim some comfort.

“I’d like to thank the investigation team and the Crown Prosecution Service for their hard work in bringing this case to court.”
