Mother-of-one, 19, left traumatised after she was ‘almost beaten to death’ by a man who attacked her with a Nokia mobile phone after ‘following her home and letting himself into her HOUSE’ following alleged drinks spiking incident
A young woman suffered a broken eye socket and shattered nose after a stranger repeatedly struck her over the head with a mobile phone in the street.
Blaze Jessop, 19, believes her attacker may been following her and spiked her earlier on a night out.
The mother-of-one had been partying with her elder sister in Hull city centre on Friday, November 26, when a number of incidents led them to think they were being watched.
Later at around 2.20am on Saturday, after she and her sister arrived home by taxi, they claim their attacker suddenly appeared in their doorway and said, ‘what now girls’ before they shoved him out.
Miss Jessop said: ‘The man hit me with a Nokia phone and beat me up. I now have a broken eye socket, broken cheek bone, shattered nose, shattered thumb and two black eyes.’

Her sister, who does not want to be named, apparently smacked her head on the street and had concussion.
Miss Jessop’s injuries horrified her mother Carrie, who said she feared her daughters had been ‘almost beaten to death’.
She added: ‘The girls screamed so loud that the neighbours heard them. If they hadn’t then the neighbours wouldn’t have called an ambulance to take them to hospital.
‘My girls are only 5ft 4ins and about eight stone so they are only tiny. He almost beat them to death. They told me that people came out of their homes into the street to try and stop it.
‘My eldest daughter told me today that she knows she can just tell she had been spiked. She said two days later, her pupils are really small and she has been having nose bleeds.’

During their night out, Miss Jessop claims a woman came up to her inside one of the bars and pointed at a group of men, saying, ‘watch out for them – I just get a strange vibe’.
Miss Jessop then began vomiting and was ‘thrown out’ by bouncers. She says this was the first time she had been sick in a long while and thought something was wrong.
The day after the attack, the distraught family were unsure of what had happened so went back to the Old Town bar from the night before seeking answers.
Miss Jessop said: ‘We saw the CCTV evidence from the Saturday night and saw the attacker straight away.’
Her mother added: ‘You could see a man pointing to loads of girls. There seemed to be a group of them but then this one pointed and you could see he spiked their drinks. It’s all on CCTV.’
Humberside Police are currently investigating the claims.
A force spokeswoman said: ‘We are in the early stages of investigating an alleged assault of a woman on Belmont Street in Hull.
