Woman slashed love rival to face with stiletto-shaped perfume over love triangle

A woman who slashed her love rival across the face with a stiletto-shaped perfume bottle has been spared jail.

Jessica Baker, 20, launched a violent attack against her boyfriend's ex-partner Amelia Duckworth after they got into a row on social media.

The mum of one yelled “I’m going to do you in” and struck her rival with a Carolina Herrera glass perfume bottle in a park in Poundbury, Dorset.

She is said to have concealed the item behind her back before she hit her twice across the bloodied head.

Miss Duckworth’s cousin Georgia Hooper took photos of the moment Baker launched her attack, reports the Mirror.

She needed stitches for a gash between her eyes and her scalp was glued in hospital.

Rob Griffiths, prosecuting, told Bournemouth Crown Court how Baker met the victim on the green of King Charles’ model village Poundbury, Dorset, on August 24 last year, intending to harm her.

He said: “A witness saw her ‘walking with a purpose’. She had a phone in her hand and was staring at the phone, ‘gobbing off, effing and blinding’.

Ms Duckworth said to the defendant "if you have something to say, just say it then" and she responded "I’m going to do you in".

In a victim impact statement, Ms Duckworth said she had been left traumatised and afraid to go out.

Rebecca Fairbairn, defending, said “genuinely remorseful” Baker pleaded guilty at the first opportunity.

Baker admitted actual bodily harm and possession of an ­offensive weapon.

She was sentenced to 12 months in prison, suspended for two years, on the condition of a two-month curfew between 9pm and 7am.

Baker must also pay a £156 victim surcharge and was subjected to a two-year restraining order.
