Grave and Criminal Assault Conviction

Yesterday afternoon (Thursday 18 April 2024), the Royal Court found 45-year-old Andrew Page guilty of grave and criminal assault. He was remanded into custody and his sentencing date will be set next week.

Page committed the offence at a residential address in December 2022, throwing his female victim around, placing his hands around her neck a few times and choking her to the point that she nearly passed out. He also hit her head against a door frame before he left the property. 

Page initially reported to police that his victim had assaulted him, however, after further enquiries it was established, that Page had been the aggressor during the incident. 

Detective Constable Verity Thomas from the Public Protection Unit said:” This was a deliberate and nasty assault carried out by Page. Behaviour like this should never be tolerated. We will do everything in our power to see offenders such as this face justice. Anyone else who has experienced similar abuse can come forward and speak to officers at any time.”
