Teen Jailed After Shaving Ex's Hair In Revenge Attack

Monday November 18 2013


Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court


A TEENAGER has been jailed for 16 weeks for shaving his ex-girlfriend's hair - after she told him she had been unfaithful.

Samuel Kennedy, 18, who had broken up with Courtney Dyson about two weeks earlier, decided to embarrass and humiliate her because he wanted revenge, Barnsley Magistrates' Court was told.

After using electric haircutters on Miss Dyson at his home, Kennedy told her: "That's what you deserve. Get out of my house."

Jayne Ormrod, prosecuting, said Kennedy asked Miss Dyson to his home to talk things over after the split. Miss Dyson went because she thought Kennedy might 'do something silly'.

She said Kennedy, of Brookfield, Oxspring, picked up Miss Dyson's handbag and took it upstairs. She followed him to his bedroom.

Mrs Ormrod said: "Miss Dyson sat on a bed. Mr Kennedy got on top of her. As he straddled he, he picked up some electric hair cutters and partially shaved her head.

"He later said he did not want to hurt her. He said he wanted revenge, to embarrass her and to make her look stupid."

Mrs Ormrod added that a 'distressed' Miss Dyson had had to spend more than £200 on a wig following the attack.

Eric Bray, defending, said Kennedy had been 'deeply upset' when Miss Dyson told him she had been unfaithful more than once.

Mr Bray said: "This was astonishing behaviour by Mr Kennedy. It should not have happened.

"At one point during the encounter, Miss Dyson said 'goodbye' and Mr Kennedy straddled her on the bed with his knees either side of her body.

"He reached for the cutters, shaved off part of her hair and that was the end of it. He wanted to humiliate and shame her but went the wrong way about it."

Kennedy, who admitted assault, was banned from contacting Miss Dyson for two years.

I am astonished by the comments on here.

@Good Lad - This is 2013 you know. How backward are you? You seem to have a very misogynistic attitude towards women.

Good job he didn't get let off or all the close shave jokes would have been released. Oh.........

What a stupid thing to send someone to jail for! There are people that do ''propper crimes'' and don't get sent to jail.

It is less about cutting the hair and more about the force that he would have had to use in order to keep her pinned, girls are pretty protective over their hair! He was sent to jail for assault, not giving her a "haircut"

Also Mae brussell/Mrs mail. You can spot her posts a mile off. Hates Barnsley people and men and has a fixation with telling everyone to suck their morhers pussy. Likes jogging and turns nasty quite quickly.

It does seem a little strange that someone goes to prison for shaving someone's hair that'll grow back in a few weeks and someone gets a simple fine for kicking someone in the face. Invest in Barnsley, We're not stupid... it just looks like we are.

No wonder I left Barnsley.
