A Colne man has been jailed after he launched a vicious attack on two women who were attending a family party at a house in the town.

Dilnawaz Hussain struck one of his victims with a monkey wrench, then punched and kicked the other woman to the ground.

When she was on the floor, he picked up a sound bar and used that as a weapon to hit her. Hussain was wearing a balaclava when he forced his way through a gate into the rear yard of the house in Colne, near his own home.

At Preston Crown Court last week, Hussain was jailed for 11 years and 10 months. The judge deemed Hussain as a dangerous offender and imposed a five-year extended licence period.

DC Natalie Swindells of Burnley CID, said: “This was a violent assault in which Hussain was armed with a weapon. It was unprovoked and two innocent women suffered injuries.

“We will not tolerate violence and will thoroughly investigate assaults so that violent offenders face justice.”
