A man has been given an 18-year prison sentence for the attempted murder of a woman he attacked with a shock absorber in Shrewsbury

Javed Qureshi, aged 30, of Ellesmere Road in Shrewsbury appeared at Stafford Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday 5 June) where he was sentenced for attempted murder.

The court heard how on October 31, 2023 officers responded to a call from a member of the public after they were approached by women with serious injuries to her head and arm in Shrewsbury.

When officers arrived at the scene they quickly located Qureshi at his home address nearby, where he had started a fire causing extensive damage to his home, and endangering the lives of other people in the neighbouring properties.

Qureshi was swiftly arrested and later charged with attempted murder and aggravated arson.

He was found guilty of both charges at Stafford Crown Court on April 26, 2024 following a week-long trial.

The victim sustained several cuts to her head, a fractured skull, a bleed to the brain and a broken elbow during the attack.

Qureshi was yesterday given an 18-year sentence for attempted murder and four years for aggravated arson. Both sentences are to run concurrently.
