Hit-and-run driver ploughed car into dad-of-three

Despairingly, a father-of-three saw his life flash before his eyes after he was thrown into the air when he was hit by an uninsured driver. Whilst on his way to collect his daughter, the father heard a collision take place between a vehicle that was operated by 26-year-old Thomas Hill. Upon trying to escape, Hill plunged into the father after he attempted to stop Hill from escaping the scene. This appalling act of crime resulted in the victim receiving a scarred nose, cuts, bruising and immense pain.

During Hill’s conviction, the victim read a disheartening statement, explaining that the situation has “left me in continued pain, I struggle for breath, I find walking difficult. I struggle to rest, and I haven’t slept properly since the incident.” Upsettingly, he also indicated that “I have flashbacks of the incident. I question myself on whether it is something I did or I could have done differently. I am also scared my children witnessed what happened.”

Eventually, Thomas Hill pleaded guilty to dangerous driving, assault, failing to stop at the scene of an accident, failing to report an accident and driving without insurance. He was sentenced to 15 months behind bars, with an additional ban from driving for 2 years and 7 months.

David Allsopp’s life was fatefully taken after 47-year-old Magdalena Kissova manipulated her way into Allsopp’s home for free housing, claiming to be his carer. However, not long after, Kissova began assaulting Allsop, often leaving him traumatised.

Derby Crown Court were informed on how Kissova attacked, kicked, and stamped on Mr Allsop, conflicting an array of fatal injuries. After viciously beating Allsop to death, she then fled to Manchester once convincing Allsopp’s twin sister that her brother was just asleep in his bed.

Upsettingly, neighbours claim that they were concerned since the beginning of Kissova’s arrival, with one witness highlighting that he heard Mr Allsopp “screaming louder than he had ever heard before.” Another neighbour researched what they heard Kissova shout to the victim, translating to “devil”.

In August, Magdalena Kissova plead guilty to murdering Allsop and whilst in court, was made aware that she will serve a minimum of 24 years before she gets the opportunity to apply for parole.


Man claiming to be from Neighbourhood Watch pushes elderly couple to ground before stealing from them

An innocent elderly couple who are in their late 70’s and early 80’s were horrifically harassed after a man who claimed to be from the Neighbourhood Watch sent them to the ground, before proceeding to rob their belongings.

Whilst the couple were residing at home, a knock was heard from their front door. Upon answering, the man forced through the entrance, snatching a wallet with bank cards from the old man. This led to a struggle between the pair and resulted in the victim being pulled to the ground, before the woman was also pushed as the attacker left the house.

Grievously, the offender has not been identified, but has been described as “being white, in his late 20s or early 30s, and having a ‘well made’ build”. Additionally, he was witnessed wearing a green knitted hat, dark coat, dark trousers, brown boots and believed to have been holding a notebook.


Drunken man assaults partner after she was found messaging his friends

Jordan Gregory has been jailed for 11 months, due to his decision to toss a vase at his girlfriend. The scuffle occurred when Gregory visited the victim’s house because she had been in contact with his friends through social media. Police report that they had to restrain Gregory upon their arrival, since he lashed out at them, attempting to headbutt one officer.

Despite the attack, the complainant did not wish for a restraining order and received treatment in hospital for her injured leg. Apparently, Gregory has showed remorse and “does regret what he has done and knows he let himself down.”
