Man jailed after assault and dangerous driving

A Ramsgate man has been jailed for two counts of wounding and two counts of assault, as well as for dangerous driving.

Kevin Jones, 29, carried out assaults on two women with a kitchen knife after an argument at a residential property.

Both women suffered cuts to their arms.

Jones was sentenced at Canterbury Crown Court

Mr Jones took a car without permission, where he mounted a pavement and crashed into house, before reversing into a wall.

A neighbour attempted to restrain Jones but was hurt in the process.

Jones then punched a paramedic attending the scene in the face.

 

Police have said Jones is aggressive and temperamental

Investigating officer PC Benjamin Clacy said: “Jones has shown he is an aggressive and temperamental individual who put many lives at risk during his rampage.

“He could have caused serious injuries to several people who were in the house he collided with.

“He even attacked a paramedic who was trying to prevent further harm.

“I hope this sentence reassures the public that we will not tolerate such acts of violence and will do everything within our power to ensure incidents like this are fully investigated and that the perpetrators are convicted.”

Mr Jones pleaded guilty to three offences and was sentenced to 40 months in prison.

He has also been banned from driving.
