Ex-paramedic stabbed girlfriend during row then jumped in to save her

A former ambulance worker stabbed his partner during an argument then switched into 'paramedic mode' and began treating her.

Bleddyn Wyn Harris used a knife to cause the small injury in her chest, after telling her where she would "bleed slowly" and "bleed quickly".

The 40-year-old immediately staunched the flow of blood with pads.

The woman survived but had been to sacred to seek hospital treatment, reports the Daily Post.

Harris used to work for the Welsh Ambulance Service Trust and admitted assault causing actual bodily harm in that incident and two common assaults against his now ex partner – Lauren Owen.

Their relationship began in October 2017, prosecutor Sion ap Mihangel told Mold Crown Court.

They split up before rekindling their relationship before the first official lockdown this year, however, the pair had problems and he assaulted her twice in two months.

On May 30, Ms Owen struggled to sleep with his snoring and slept in their conservatory. The following morning, Harris lost his temper and punched her in the face and the back of the head.

On June 6, he looked through her phone, found messages from friends which sparked another row.

He picked up a cutting knife and knelt on her with his legs straddling either side.

Harris told her where he would cut her to make her "bleed slowly" and where to "bleed quickly".

On June 29, Ms Owen decided to leave the defendant, of Primrose Drive, Newtown.

He Harris dragged her back inside the home, stood back and kicked her "like a footballer" while barefoot, breaking his toes, and used his other foot to kick her.

The prosecutor said: "He began prodding her with a knife. The blade went into her chest. She did not feel pain owing to the pain in her rib (from the kicking).

"The defendant had been a paramedic and administered first aid. He put an ice pack on her face (from the kicking) and got pads to stop the blood."

John Hedgecoe, defending, said the pair had a 'turbulent relationship', but the moment Harris realised she was bleeding he "changed completely and went into paramedic mode".

Mr Hedgecoe told the court the defendant had mental health issues after watching a colleague dying, and treated the man in their own ambulance cab after responding to a call while on the job.

He said: "It was traumatic and a lot of this (mental health issues) has probably stemmed from that time."

Judge His Honour Niclas Parry told Harris he had given Ms Owen a "small wound but nevertheless a gaping wound".

He was jailed for two years for assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and three months each to run consecutively, two counts of common assault.
