A man who verbally abused a woman on her own driveway and punched and kicked her car has been sentenced.
Jonathan Reed, 34, of Church Road, Teversham, Cambridge pleaded guilty to using threatening behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.
On August 1 last year, Reed waited for his victim to finish work then blocked her onto her driveway in Cambridge. He subjected her to verbal abuse before kicking, rocking and punching her vehicle.
He eventually stopped when a member of the public intervened and police were called.
On Thursday (April 12) at Huntingdon Magistrates' Court, Reed was sentenced to a 12-month community order and made subject of a restraining order for a year.
Praise for domestic abuse victim
PC Gary Nightingale said: “I hope this sentence will allow the victim to move on with her life without the fear of continuing offences from Reed.
“This result is a fine example of what happens when the support of domestic abuse victims is combined with the polices commitment to relentlessly tackling this issue.”
