POLICE have welcomed the sentence handed to an "emotionless and evil" brute who viciously attacked his on-off partner and stole an Audi worth £7,500.

Orion Mundy of Manor Crescent, Moredon, was locked up two years and four months in a youth detention centre after pleading guilty to burglary, plus a further nine months for separate drug offences. It took the 21-year-old's sentence to a total of three years and one month in prison.

Detective Constable Jared Yalden, of Wiltshire Police's Fortitude team, said: “This is a positive result, not only for the victim, but also for the public – it shows that Wiltshire Police will do everything possible to bring those responsible for burglaries to justice by ensuring they are put before the courts.

“We will always take reports of burglary extremely seriously.

"The impact that a burglary can have on a victim should never be underestimated. A home should be a safe place and I know this incident continues to really impact on the victim and her family. The homeowner tells me the feelings of violation are overwhelming.

"I hope this court result goes some way in helping the victim feel safe once again in her own home.”
