Jordan Elliott, 23, subjected a woman known to him to a prolonged assault in Ashford Memorial Gardens, during which he punched, headbutted and pulled her hair.

He then tripped a police officer called to the incident, causing the officer to fall and lose consciousness. Elliott also exhaled blood over another officer as he was being taken into custody.


He admitted two counts of assault causing actual bodily harm and one count of assaulting an emergency worker at Medway Magistrates' Court on Monday 9 March and was jailed at Canterbury Crown Court on Friday 15 May.

Elliott from Ashford, assaulted the woman in the early hours of Sunday 8 March 2020 after he followed her during a night out in Ashford. He knocked her to the ground and assaulted her in the Memorial Gardens.

When police arrived and arrested him, he tripped up one of the officers, causing the officer to fall backwards and lose consciousness.


After being transported to a police station, Elliott assaulted another officer by exhaling blood onto her.

PC Laura Corbin, Kent Police's investigating officer, said: 'Elliott's violence on the night of the assaults was sustained and had a long-term impact on the woman he attacked and our officers.


'Assaults on police officers are totally unacceptable and we will seek the prosecution of anyone who attacks or injures any of our team.'
