Detective Constable Nicola Austin, from Bedfordshire Police’s Emerald team, said: “Daniel Owens displayed a concerning pattern of behaviour which escalated rapidly over short period of time. Domestic abuse in any form is unacceptable and this kind of behaviour won’t be tolerated in our county.

“We are pleased that Owens will now spend time behind bars, during which we hope he will reflect on his actions.

“We hope this sentencing will encourage other victims of abuse to come forward and want to send a strong message of reassurance to others subjected to abuse that help and support is available. Please speak out, we can help and we are committed to bringing offenders to justice.”

If you are concerned about someone or are being subjected to abuse please call police on 101. If the crime is in progress or in if someone is in danger, always call 999.
