A man who repeatedly punched his partner in front of her three young children has been jailed thanks to compelling CCTV footage that captured the two-minute attack.
Isleworth Crown Court heard Jason Edwards, 36, of north west London, treated his partner like a ‘punchbag’ as they stood in a lift at Westfield shopping centre in Shepherds Bush, last month.
CCTV operators alerted a security guard to the attack but Edwards escaped and his partner refused to cooperate with the police.
His partner, whose three children are all under the age of 13, did not attend hospital and has since made a good recovery.
However, officers continued with their investigation and Edwards was subsequently arrested in Colindale and charged with Actual Bodily Harm.

For nearly two minutes he struck his partner as if she was a human punch bag, in front of her three children who were helpless to stop it.
“Despite reluctance from the victim in revealing the identity of her partner and attacker, we were able to progress the investigation quickly using the CCTV and intelligence available to us.
“This case is testimony to our commitment in bringing violent offenders to justice, whatever the circumstance are, even when there is no victim statement provided at court.”
