Huddersfield is in the spotlight after a young mother of two was admitted to hospital with a broken jaw after being attacked by her husband.
The 20-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was attacked while she was in her home on Thursday night by her ex-partner’s son.
The couple had been living together for the past three years and the woman was taken to hospital for treatment.
She was later discharged but her jaw has since broken and she has had to have two teeth removed.
The man was arrested and charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
He will appear in court next week.
Huddersfields Police said the victim is from Wrexham and was living in the city with her partner and their two children.
She said: “It’s just awful what happened.
I was just crying and my partner was yelling and hitting me and the kids were running outside.””
I don’t know what to do.
I just want to be safe.”
Her partner had been in the house for a short period of time with his family before leaving to go and work.
Police said the woman suffered a fractured jaw, a broken nose and facial fractures.
“This is something that has happened quite recently,” Detective Inspector Mike Edwards said.
“It is quite difficult to get information on the injuries to a victim who is not a victim of crime.”
“This was not a violent incident, but we do have an allegation of assault and we are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact us.”
He said officers were looking at CCTV footage of the incident, and if anyone was able to provide information they would be contacted.
“At the moment, we are not investigating any other incidents of this nature,” Detective Constable Edwards said
