A man who held his former girlfriend hostage and abused her for two days has been locked up for more than two years.
Tyler Leisk, 20, attacked his former partner with a boxing glove, poured boiling water over her arm and choked her during a horrific orgy of violence.
During the prolonged assault, his victim “thought she was going to die” multiple times.
Last month, Leisk admitted threatening to kill his former partner, pulling her along the ground by her hair and pouring boiling water over her body, to her severe injury and permanent disfigurement.
Leisk and the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had been in an off-on relationship for about a year at the time of the incident.
Aberdeen Sheriff Court was told the “prolonged and sustained” attack had been prompted by his belief she was sleeping with another man.
It took place “in every room” of a city-centre flat and lasted from 8pm on March 20 last year to 4pm on March 22.
Fiscal depute Gavin Letford previously told the court that “clumps of hair” fell from the victim’s head as she was dragged from room to room and that at one point Leisk had pulled on a boxing glove.
“On several occasions I thought I was going to die,” the woman added in her witness report.
Eventually, on March 22, Leisk left the flat and his victim found a spare key which she used to make her escape.
After briefly hiding in a nearby garden, she ran towards Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, taking a complicated route in case her attacker was following.
Police subsequently went to his flat on March 23 and noted “signs of a disturbance”, together with “clumps of hair and blood”.
On March 25, the 20-year-old was traced elsewhere in the city and taken into custody.
Sentence on Leisk was deferred until yesterday in order to obtain further social reports.
Sheriff Morag McLaughlin ordered that the 20-year-old be sent to the young offenders institution at Polmont for 26 months.
He will be supervised by the authorities for a further year following his release.
