| Last updated
A woman who was attacked by her boyfriend and left in a pool of blood has bravely spoken out about the horrific ordeal.
Louise Reed, was punched, head-butted and thrown around her home by her abusive boyfriend, Robert Jenney, 30, after he flew into a violent rage.
The 27-year-old mum needed hospital treatment after the vicious attack, including having her nosed glued, reports the Sun.
Though her abuse was horrific Louise took to social media to share her story, raise awareness about domestic abuse and shame her ex.
In the lengthy emotional post Louise says: "Being punched, thrown about and head butted in the face and being made to feel like a prisoner in my own home having to climb out of the window whilst pouring with blood to run for help is a memory that will stay with me forever.
"Feeling like such a fucking idiot and fool taken in by what I thought was a kind, sweet, romantic boyfriend who would have done anything for me for then to turn at the slightest argument/disagreement, become controlling, aggressive, unrecognisable. This isn't the man I met when I was 13 years old. I don't know this person anymore and I'm starting to question whether I actually did.
"Thing is with these type of people, they have a certain way of making you believe it's your fault, that you've started the argument, that you've pushed them to do what they've done. They manipulate you into thinking it's all in your head and you're the problem when I'm actual fact, it's all mind games to break you down."
She added in the Facebook post: "I was laid on the floor unconscious in a pool of my own blood whilst he sat in my living room rolling a fag."
Robert was handed a 12-month community order and ordered to pay £75 in compensation and £170 in court costs.
However, Louise told TeesideLive that she believes the sentence was unjust.
She said: "I think the sentence he received is disgusting, he should have been sent to prison.
"He could have killed me.
"I suffer from nightmares and have trouble sleeping, I need to move out of my house and have a fresh start with my daughter, Skyler-Mae.
"I suffer from depression but he is free to get on with his life, it feels like he's been let off."
Robert must also do ten days of rehabilitation activity and was landed with a 12-month restraining order.
A man who was tortured by his girlfriend bravely spoke about his ordeal earlier this year.
Alex Skeel was with his now ex-girlfriend, Jordan Worth, for five years and was starved, stabbed, had his life threatened, was made to sleep on the floor and even had boiling water poured over him - leading to second and third-degree burns.
