Harrowing 999 recording captures thug savagely beating his ex-girlfriend

A shocking 999 call captured the terrifying moment a thug broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home before beating her semi-conscious and stabbing her with a knife.

In the recording Aaron Marsden Booth, 27, can be heard breaking through the front door of his ex-partner’s home as she screams in terror and begs for help from police.

The unnamed victim asks the operator: "Can I have the police please, my boyfriend is breaking in. He is kicking my door down can you hurry up?"

In the background, there is a loud bang as the door is smashed in before the woman lets out a "blood-curdling scream" and pleads: "Please, don't hurt me."

Booth can be heard telling her: "What I'm going to do...I'm going to f***ing kill you." before the phone line cuts dead.

The abusive yob then battered the beauty salon worker semi-conscious in her own home before she was able to flee from the property in Glossop, Derbys.

Booth then stabbed his victim in the street in front of police officers who were arriving at the scene before holding the blade to her throat.

Officers, armed only armed only with batons and capture spray, pleaded with him to not harm her further and he eventually walked away and returned to her address.

He then forced armed police into a three-hour standoff as his ex girlfriend was rushed to hospital following the shocking incident in February this year.

Booth went on to plead guilty to wounding with intent and was jailed for 14 years as his victim, now 31, bravely watched on from the public gallery at Derby Crown Court.

Shocking injury pictures released by Derbyshire Police after the case also show the victim, who the force have not named, with horrific facial bruising and swelling.

Judge Richard Mansell QC praised her in helping bring Booth to justice and ensuring that others would not become a victim at his hands.

He told her: “You have been brave in the extreme. You have not just protected yourself; you have protected other women.”

The victim said Booth was "charming" when they first met in 2017 and, despite warnings from pals about his previous behaviour, began a relationship with him the following year.

She came to realise why her friends were concerned as his abusive behaviour came to the fore in May 2018 when he began drinking to excess and taking drugs.

Sentencing, Judge Mansell added: “When at home, you would bully and degrade her by spitting, flicking cigarettes or throwing household items at her, as well as calling her names.

“You pursued her by turning up at her home and the beauty salon where she worked and contacting her friends, but then left her alone for about a month.

“However, you met up with her in July 2018 and persuaded her that you would change and so she agreed to start seeing you again.

“Very soon you reverted to the same kind of behaviour.”

In the September of that year Booth threatened to kill his victim before wrapping both his hands around her neck as if to strangle her.

His victim tried repeatedly to break of their relationship. But each time Booth would bombard her with calls and texts and force her, through emotional blackmail, to retract her complaints made against him.

After being charged with attempted murder, Booth went on to plead guilty to a section 18 assault – wounding with intent.

He must serve at least nine years in prison before he can apply for parole and once freed must serve six years on licence.

He was also handed an indefinite restraining order which prohibits Booth from contacting his victim.
