Teversham man gets restraining order after verbally abusing a woman on her own driveway


By Ben Comber


Police were called when a member of the public stepped in.

Jonathan Reed, 34, of Church Road, Teversham, Cambridge pleaded guilty to using threatening behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

A court heard that 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.

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 police’s commitment to relentlessly tackling this issue.”

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.

Further information and advice about domestic abuse can be found on the Cambridgeshire Constabulary website.
