'Dangerous' kidnapper subjected woman to ‘terrifying and sustained’ attack

A ‘DANGEROUS’ Rugby man kidnapped a woman and subjected her to a ‘terrifying and sustained’ attack.

Miroslaw Jasinski, 56, of Spectrum Avenue, has been jailed for six years after pleading guilty to assault, kidnap, making threats to kill and false imprisonment.

Warwick Crown Court heard how Jasinski kidnapped a woman on March 16 this year and subjected her to over two hours of threats and violence.

The victim – a woman in her 40’s – phoned Jasinski to get a lift home from her boyfriend’s house.

Jasinski said he needed to go to his flat to pick something up. While there he launched an unprovoked attack on the woman before tying her to a chair and threatening to drown her.

The attack continued for more than two hours, during which he dragged her by the hair and threw her against a wall.

Jasinski and the victim then left his flat and drove around for half an hour before she managed to escape and raised the alarm.

Jasinski was arrested two days later.

Det Cons Olly George from Warwickshire Police CID said: “Jasinski is a dangerous man who subjected his victim to a terrifying and sustained attack.

“She has shown great bravery in reporting her ordeal and supporting our investigation. I hope she can take some comfort from this outcome.”
