Man, 27, tried 'to Facetime dad of girlfriend' as he tortured her, court hears


He put out cigarettes in her face, cut her with a knife, stabbed her in the shoulder with a screwdriver, repeatedly punched her and spat at her, Liverpool Crown court was told. Dunn was said to have held a knife to her feet and threatened to cut off her toes.

The court heard that, at one point during the ordeal, Dunn attempted to FaceTime the woman’s father as he “wanted him to see” the injuries. Her father did not answer the call.

At around 12.45pm she was able to escape. CCTV footage played for the court showed him chasing the woman down the street on Sidney Place in Edge Hill, about a mile away.

She was able to hide from her abuser in a bin, while he shouted for her. She attended Aintree Hospital later that day. She suffered 23 separate injuries.

Her jaw was broken in two places, she suffered bruising to the heart and cigarette burns to the lips, her right temple and behind her left ear as well as a fracture to her left knuckle.

Dunn went on the run before being arrested on March 16. The pair are still in a relationship, the court heard. 

Dunn has seven previous convictions for nine offences including two for domestic incidents.

Brendan Carville, defending, said: “They both had a cocktail of cocaine and drink, then he behaved in the disgusting way he behaved towards her. He is deeply ashamed – he is ashamed of her injuries, sustained at his hands.”
