Jamie Simpson, 30, was locked up for 51 months by the Isle of Wight Crown Court and was forbidden to contact his victim Yavana Dix for life, 21 years after he was found guilty of hitting her with a glass bottle
A “violent” attacker has been jailed or more than four years after beating a young mother in the street with a glass bottle and leaving her with a horrific head wound.
Jamie Simpson was awake with victim Yavana Dix when he hit the bottle on the head during a heated discussion and left her with a large scar on her face.
The 30-year-old threatened to knock her out before launching the nighttime attack on the 21-year-old mother when she went out, a court heard.
Miss Dix, who has a two-year-old son and works as a caregiver for people with disabilities, fell to the floor after the bottle hit her head and Simpson fled before the police arrived.
She was taken to a nearby home after the attack in the Isle of Wight Lake District.
Her family revealed that they had made an improvised bandage to dress the cut while they waited for her to be taken to St. Mary’s Hospital on the island by ambulance, where she received six stitches over her eye.
Daniel Sawyer, the prosecutor, told the Isle of Wight Crown Court: “They were both in the same social circle and knew each other. Around 11 p.m., when people started to leave, Mr. Simpson suddenly turned against her and argued.
“He told her he was going to take her out, she left to smoke, but Mr. Simpson followed. The argument continued, Mrs. Dix threw her drink at him, so he hit her with a bottle.
“She fell to the floor and he immediately apologized. He offered to help her, but the police were called and Mr. Simpson ran before they arrived.
21-year-old Yavana Dix needed stitches over her eye after she was hit on the head with a glass bottle by Simpson, who was imprisoned in the Isle of Wight Crown Court for more than four years after the attack in December 2019.
Simpson was subject to a community order at the time of the December 2019 attack. Simpson had previously attacked Ms. Dix and her father

“As a result of this incident, Ms. Dix feels vulnerable, when she goes out, she insists on knowing exactly who will be there, and is wary of strangers, especially when it comes to alcohol.
“She had a big scar on her face that made her feel confident and it works like a constant memory. It is something that will affect her for the rest of her life. ‘
Simpson, who lives on the Isle of Wight, has admitted to causing serious bodily harm unintentionally.
The court heard that at the time of the attack in December last year he was subject to a community order after admitting that he attacked his ex-partner and her father four months earlier.
Conviction, Judge Susan Evans said, “You ran away and left Mrs. Dix in a shocking state.
“It seems that violence against women is nothing new to you. If you drink, you become violent. ‘
She imprisoned Simpson for 51 months and gave him a permanent restraining order banning him from contacting Ms. Dix. He was ordered to pay a £ 120 fee.
