AN ABUSIVE man who attacked his ex-partner and two of her friends in a violent machete attack has been jailed for more than a decade.

Tuy Van Tran hit a pregnant woman over the head and in the stomach at a flat in Broad Street, Parkgate, before launching a frenzied attack on the two other occupants in the property with a machete on June 27.

The 32-year-old was jailed for 12 years for the attack, which almost led to one of the victim’s arms being severed.

A police spokesperson said it had been due only to the quick thinking of a passing member of the public, who put pressure on the wound having found the victim in the street, that her arm had been saved.

The victim is likely to face issues with her arm for the rest of her life.

Det Con Adam Jones, from Rotherham CID, said: “This is an extremely vicious attack in which an abusive man caused severe injury to a number of innocent people, simply because he didn’t get his own way. 

“Upon arriving home to where she was staying, the victim found Tran was there and he had let himself in.

“Tran took the victim into the bedroom and shut the door before launching his attack.

“The victim called for the help of her friends, who upon trying to help, were also attacked by Tran, this time with a machete.”

Tran, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to section 18 wounding at Sheffield Crown Court on Monday.

Det Con Jones added: “I am pleased to see that this violent man is now behind bars and cannot cause any further harm to the public.

“This case is also a sobering reminder of the abuse that some people may be suffering behind closed doors, and we will do everything in our power to put violent offenders before the courts.”
