A 20-year-old from Meopham who trapped his ex-girlfriend in a remote cabin and attacked her while high on cocaine has been jailed for three years.
Levi Lewis Eastwood, of Scratton Fields, Sole Street, had met the 18-year-old to chat about their break-up but he turned on her, beating her and dragged her through woodland to an isolated building where he said: “You don’t have long to live, I’ve brought you here to kill you.”
At Maidstone Crown Court, Eastwood pleaded guilty to assault causing actual bodily harm, false imprisonment and two common assault charges.
He was sentenced to three years in a young offenders’ institute on Monday February 4.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Steve Dingwall, of Kent Police, said: “This was a nasty, deliberate and cold-blooded attack on a vulnerable young woman.
“I would like to praise her bravery in coming forward and helping us with our investigations, as well as witnesses who showed courage and fortitude giving evidence to help convict Eastwood, who is a dangerous individual.”
