My jealous boyfriend beat me and tore out my hair and held me hostage after I went to the cops
WHEN Alice Wilson, 27, met Joseph Emery, she was smitten - but things quickly soured. Over the months to come he manipulated her, abused her colleagues and held her hostage for hours on end where he tore out her hair and beat her. He even sent her haunting messages threatening to stab her cat to death. Eventually, Alice reported him to the police but before they could he he pinned her down and the torrent of abuse began again.
