- An Adelaide mother exposes her ex-partner’s abuse
- Cloey Noonan’s abuse was caught on CCTV
- Brendan Williams tried to strangle her
- Vision showed him trying to break her arm
An abused mother under 24-hour surveillance in her own home by her controlling partner used the cameras he installed to bring him to justice.
Footage shows Cloey Noonan’s brutal boyfriend, Brendan Williams, in fits of rage trying to break her arm and strangle her with jumper cables in their Adelaide home.
In a tirade, he even threatened to use a speargun on her and “cut her to bits like Berley on a boat.”
But Ms Noonan found the courage to take the shocking CCTV evidence to police and it landed Williams in jail after pleading guilty to 15 charges, including two counts of unlawful asphyxia.
He was sentenced to up to five years in prison in March this year, but could be released as early as August if there is an opportunity for parole.

The disturbing footage showed Williams pushing and yelling at Ms Noonan, flipping a bed upside down and smashing a fan to the ground in a terrifying fit of rage.
In one horrible clip, a shirtless Williams bends her arm back to try to break it while holding her baby with her other arm.
She said the “torture” she endured during their time together resulted in her suffering from PTSD and anxiety.
The pair got together in 2012 after Williams lost his two-year-old son BJ Williams, who was killed by another man.
Ms Noonan said their relationship was fine until they moved in together with their two children.
“He just started saying I was a lying, cheating son of a bitch. I became isolated from friends, I actually didn’t have any friends anymore, I wasn’t allowed to go to work anymore,’ says the mother A current situation.
“It just got worse and worse, (the) argument, going through my phone… he’s tried to break my arm, he’s threatened to shoot me with a fishing harpoon gun and hack me to pieces like a burley on a boat.’
Ms Noonan said he tried to strangle her with jumper cables and claimed her son witnessed the horror attack unfold as he sat in his highchair.

She said the CCTV footage capturing the violent confrontations and altercations was set up by Williams so she could keep an eye on the children.
But then Ms. Noonan said the appointment became a control mechanism for her – so she decided she had to do something to stop the behavior.
“I was sitting on the floor in my bedroom crying and then I thought, ‘I can’t do this anymore, I have to go and I have to go for good,'” the mother said.
She accessed the footage and sent it to an email that “nobody knew about,” where she eventually forwarded the vision to police after she left Williams.
Mrs. Noonan cried as she looked at herself in the footage.
The case against her former partner was a good one because of the evidence and Williams pleaded guilty to 15 charges.
These include eight counts of aggravated assault, two counts of unlawful asphyxia and one count of damaging property.

He was sentenced to a maximum of five years in prison last March.
But Ms Noonan’s vindication seemed short-lived after it was revealed in August that he could walk free after serving just two years and nine months behind bars.
She said the court system was a “joke” but was glad she revealed what she went through with Williams.
The mother said she was proud of showing her children that the abuse was not okay.
Ms Noonan has given police permission to use the video for training purposes for officers to ‘see what’s really happening’.
