Jamie Collins' rampage began when he accused his partner of cheating on him on June 25, 2023.

He then attacked her in the early hours of the morning.

He hit her round the face two times, pushed her onto the floor where she hit her head on a radiator, and punched her in the back of her head several times in a property on Coventry Road, Peterborough. 

Collins left her inside, went out to a car belonging to the victim's ex-husband, and shamed the windscreen of it.

His rampage continued when he kicked a paint can which sprayed on a neighbour's car. 

The Peterborough man quickly fled the scene, but returned at around 5am to continue his rampage. 

He used a brick to smash windows on a car that belonged to the victim's friend. Collins climbed onto the bonnet, shattered the windscreen with his foot, and shouted to the car owner's partner, "Let me in I'm going to kill him", before he ripped off a window wiper.

The Peterborough criminal then smashed another car's windows while shouting racial abuse, before he left the scene once again at 6.15am.

Collins walked into a shop on Lincoln Road, Peterborough, and stole a bottle of whisky from a store assistant behind the till. 

Not long after the theft, Collins was arrested and was found guilty of assault by beating, criminal damage, racially/religiously aggravated criminal damage and theft at a hearing earlier this month.

At Cambridge Crown Court on January 17, Collins was sentenced to three years and one month for the offences, which included a grievous bodily harm charge from 2020. 

DC Stephanie Day described Collins' behaviour as "despicable" and said: “I hope the conclusion of the court process will be of some comfort to the victim as she attempts to rebuild her life and find the happiness she deserves elsewhere.
