Justin/Charlotte Blundell

Justin/Charlotte Blundell, a violent male who identifies as a transgender woman, was convicted of assault (as Justin Blundell) at Newcastle Crown Court in 2016 and sentenced to 22 months in HMP Durham, a category B male prison.

The assault was a brutal domestic violence assault where Blundell inflicted eight stab wounds to partner Robert Storeylane’s knees, as well as slashes to his leg before pouring bleach over his head and trying to set light to it. Mr Storeylane was only able to escape because Blundell slipped on the bleach and was knocked unconscious. The court issued a restraining order to protect Mr Storeylane for life.

Blundell, 26, was then further convicted at North Tyneside Magistrates’ Court in 2019 of two counts of harassment after breaching the restraining order, attempted criminal damage of a police vehicle and failing to surrender. Blundell, who is reportedly ‘in the process of transitioning’ alleged that the police “didn’t use words like she, or her – they were saying ”he” or ”Justin” and ”you are dressed like a man – so you will be arrested like a man”. Northumbria Police declined to comment. Blundell appeared by videolink from HMP Durham (so had presumably been recalled to finish the previous sentence in prison or offended again) but was given an 18 month community order, rather than additional prison time, for the most recent offences.

Blundell has a long violent criminal history and had apparently also been out on licence from a prison sentence for robbery when committing the stabbing/bleach attack in 2016.

Not to be confused with Charlene Blundell, a violent trans-identified male who set fire to a man’s flat because he refused to pay for the defendant’s gender reassignment surgery.
