Dollis Hill man jailed for attacking ex-girlfriend’s new partner with metal bar

Leslie Bartlett stormed over to Edgware where he coshed 37-year-old victim over the head

A jealous thug who beat his ex-girlfriend’s new partner with a metal bar in a premeditated attack has been sent to jail.

Leslie Bartlett, of Oxgate Gardens, Dollis Hill, left his 37-year-old victim scarred for life after coshing him over the head in June last year.

The 50-year-old armed himself before storming to his former partner’s home in Edgware, where he attacked his victim in front of several witnesses.

His victim lost a significant amount of blood and suffered deep laceration to his scalp which required stitching.

He has been left with a permanent scar.

Bartlett was convicted at Harrow Crown Court of Grievous Bodily Harm and jailed for six-and-a-half-years.

DC Janine Stevenson, investigating officer, said: “This was a pre-planned and particularly violent attack, fuelled by Bartlett’s uncontrollable jealous rage, as a result of his ex girlfriend starting a new relationship with the victim.

“The courage and cooperation of the victim and all of the witnesses involved in this case was critical to this investigation, which subsequently led to a positive outcome at court and justice served.”
