Disabled mum knocked to street after being ‘violently elbowed’ by stranger on school run

Bournemouth Echo: ASSAULT: Telicia Chantelle Henry ASSAULT: Telicia Chantelle Henry

A DISABLED mum was knocked to the street after being violently elbowed by a stranger while picking up her child from school.

The assault happened on November 27 when the victim was walking along the pavement on Seabourne Road with other mums with pushchairs, Bournemouth magistrates were told.

The group was approached by 34-year-old Telicia Shantell Henry, who swore at the mums before elbowing the victim hard and causing her to fall over.

Henry, of no fixed abode, then walked away from the group, but police officers later tracked her down after getting a detailed description from the victim.

Prosecutor Alison Saunders said that the victim was left with a lump on her shoulder, severe bruising, whiplash and a possible chipped bone following the assault.

In a statement read to the court, the victim said the assault had left her not able to sleep for three nights because of the pain and as a result she had lost her confidence when walking around Southbourne.

The court heard how Henry was ‘a frequent character around Southbourne’ and that she had a previous assault on her record.

Mitigating, Mark Price said Henry had issues with alcohol and previous offences of criminal damage and battery. He said: “When this offence happened she was faced with a crowd of mothers and pushchairs and couldn’t get past, so she forced her way through forcefully – it wasn’t a reckless assault.”

Mrs Saunders said that Henry was arrested in December but refused to comment in her interview with police.

Magistrates handed Henry a six-week suspended prison sentence after telling her: “This offence was committed in a group of ladies with children around. The abusive language you used was totally unacceptable and resulted in the lady being totally and utterly intimidated.”

The suspended order will last for 18 months on condition that Henry does not commit further offences.

She is indeed a well known "character" in Southbourne. A nasty piece of work who does nothing but hassle local residents and businesses (I don't think there's a shop in Southbourne that she isn't barred from.). Her sentence is a joke. Fishermans Walk will be a much nicer place when her and her drinking buddies are moved on.

Yeah, 100% agree. However, had they done that (let's say they had been ladies walking home from a martial arts class, for example) then it would probably have been framed as a 'gang attack' on a 'vulnerable woman'. Coming to the sentence, I'm staggered that previous offenses are not taken more strongly into account : most people would be happy to give a first offender another chance, we all make mistakes. However, habitual offenders should be removed from society, until they are no longer a problem.

Why should she the sentence be so meagre, she did it she should be punished, a minimum of 6 months inside should calm her attitude in future, I said 6 months. Not out in three either.
Yet more low life walking amongst us.

It is time that the authorities clamped down on street drinking, and the animals such as this who cause pain and anquish to others. This piece of **** should have been sent down. Had the lady or ladies retaliated, this thing would have made the biggest complaint to the police and courts and no doubt have been paid compensation, and a criminal charge against the lady who was intially knocked to the ground. Hopefully there might be another land slide whilst she is having a binge on the cliffs.

i am a right wing voter and all for justice but you do have to scratch beneath the surface of life. What has made this person so socially unacceptable? I wonder if she was abused or mis treated in childhood for example.It may well be that terrible experiences lie behind the current behaviour? Rather than revelling in a desire to kill her which will not happen maybe it would be best to match discipline with supportive action to prevent reoccurrence?

I think it is quite obvious that a suspended prison sentence will not make a difference one way or another.

What does not seem to be recognised is that funding her and allowing her to mix with law abiding people reduces the quality of everyone's life.

So why not lock her up for a few years with no alcohol or drugs and make her pay for her bad behaviour.
