A woman has been beaten blue and black by her ex-lover as he smashed into her house before beating her semi-conscious and stabbing her has been captured.
Aaron Marsden Booth, 27, can be heard breaking through the front door of his ex-partner Zahra Rechelle’s home as she screams in terror and begs for help from police.
She desperately asks the call handler: “Can I have the police please, my boyfriend is breaking in. He is kicking my door down can you hurry up?”
A loud noise of the door being smashed in can be heard in the background before she screams and pleads: “Please, don’t hurt me.”
Booth can be heard telling her: “What I’m going to do…I’m going to f***ing kill you” before the phone line cuts dead.
The abusive Booth then battered the beauty salon worker semi-conscious in her own home before she was able to flee from the property in Glossop, Derbyshire.
Booth then stabbed Miss Rechelle in the street in front of police officers who were arriving at the scene before holding the blade to her throat.
Officers, armed only with batons and capture spray, pleaded with him to not harm her further and he eventually walked away and returned to her address.
He then forced armed police into a three-hour standoff as his ex-girlfriend was rushed to hospital following the shocking incident in February this year.
Booth went on to plead guilty to wounding with intent and was jailed for 14 years as Miss Rechelle, now 31, bravely watched on from the public gallery at Derby Crown Court.
Shocking injury pictures released by Derbyshire Police after the case also show Miss Rechelle with horrific facial bruising and swelling.
Judge Richard Mansell QC praised her in helping bring Booth to justice and ensuring that others would not become a victim at his hands.
He told her: “You have been brave in the extreme. You have not just protected yourself; you have protected other women.”
Miss Rechelle said Booth was “charming” when they first met in 2017 and, despite warnings from pals about his previous behaviour, began a relationship with him the following year.
She came to realise why her friends were concerned as his abusive behaviour came to the fore in May 2018 when he began drinking to excess and taking drugs.
Sentencing, Judge Mansell added: “When at home, you would bully and degrade her by spitting, flicking cigarettes or throwing household items at her, as well as calling her names.
“You pursued her by turning up at her home and the beauty salon where she worked and contacting her friends, but then left her alone for about a month.
“However, you met up with her in July 2018 and persuaded her that you would change and so she agreed to start seeing you again.
“Very soon you reverted to the same kind of behaviour.”
When she realized he had a knife in his hand, Miss Rechelle managed to run from the house but Booth caught up with her stabbing her repeatedly in the legs and side.
Police officers witnessed the stabbing and urged Booth to put the knife down – instead he grabbed his victim, holding the knife to her throat and telling officers he would kill her if they came any nearer.
Eventually the officers managed to talk Booth away from Miss Rechelle – and he walked back to the house.
Locking himself in the property – armed officers were forced into a three hour standoff before he eventually threw his weapons out of the window and was arrested.
After being charged with attempted murder, Booth went on to plead guilty to a section 18 assault – wounding with intent.
He must serve at least nine years in prison before he can apply for parole and once freed must serve six years on licence.
He was also handed an indefinite restraining order which prohibits Booth from contacting Miss Rechelle.
