Woman jailed after 'hot iron' attack on lover's genitals

JAILED: Kenya Alozie

A WOMAN has been jailed for attacking her lover’s genitals with a hot iron and a broken bottle in the middle of the night.

Kenya Alozie, 31, of no fixed abode, was sentenced to nine years in prison at Woolwich Crown Court after she was found guilty of GBH with intent.

Alozie, a student, attacked her victim, a man in his 30s, on May 15 as they were having sex at a house in Plumstead, south London.

Police said she had prepared for the attack by having a hot iron and broken bottle to hand, using them to burn his legs and genitals before crashing the bottle into him.

The victim sustained several serious injuries including deep cuts and burns. He has since been forced to undergo surgery.
The former Coventry University student had come to the UK to study from Nigeria and was here on a student visa - which was due to expire at the end of May - with plans to return to her family, police said.

Alozie attempted to flee the country following the attack, but was arrested on board a plane at Heathrow Airport on May 24.

She was charged with GBH with intent on May 25.

Police were unable to confirm what had motivated Alozie to carry out the serious attack.

Detective Constable Duncan Clark from Greenwich police, said: "Alozie committed a calculated and pre-planned attack.

"She ensured she had a broken bottle to hand and a hot iron to strike the victim and seriously harm him.

"The sentence imposed clearly reflects the seriousness of this extremely violent attack."
