Bradford man, 30, jailed for seven-and-a-half years for repeatedly stabbing vulnerable woman

A MAN who repeatedly stabbed a vulnerable woman while subjecting her to a night of terrifying violence has been jailed for seven and a half years.
Daniel Davies, 30, was fuelled by alcohol and cannabis when he detained his victim at his home and kicked and punched her, Bradford Crown Court heard.
He then fetched a large knife and stabbed her several times in the leg.
Judge Jonathan Rose told Davies, of High Street, Wibsey, Bradford, it was a miracle her injuries were not more serious.
Davies pleaded guilty to causing the woman grievous bodily harm with intent.
He attacked her only a fortnight after being sentenced to a community order, on September 2 last year, for battery on another woman.
Davies's barrister, Rebecca Young, conceded the stabbing incident was "a series and nasty assault".
"The defendant is not equipped with skills that allow him to deal with highly emotionally charged situations," she said.
"He regrets his actions and he is shocked and ashamed."
Davies was depressed at the time after his father's death and was using alcohol and cannabis as a coping mechanism.
Miss Young said Davies was highly motivated to change, but she conceded of the offence: "It was nasty, serious and frightening and will have had an emotional impact on her."
Davies, who was held in custody, was engaging with the prison service to address his problems, she told the court.
Judge Rose said: "It was a sustained and repeated assault on a vulnerable woman, culminating in a stabbing."
Davies had a poor record that included convictions for possession of offensive weapons, threatening behaviour, damage and breach of a non-molestation order.
The judge said he showed a worrying propensity to use violence against women.
His victim was subjected to "a night of great violence" at his home that left her in terror.
