A man’s been jailed for hitting a woman on the neck with a meat cleaver in Southend.
Mohamed Hussain attacked the victim after she asked him to leave her flat on Kursaal Way.
He flew into a rage and carried out the assault.
Neighbours heard the commotion and tried to intervene – but Hussain hit one of them twice on the arm with the weapon.
Hussain was eventually restrained until police arrived to arrest him – he’s been sentenced to 11 years and given a three year extended license.
Essex Police has described him as a thug who caused physical and emotional injuries.
