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.

“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.”
