Sam Broadhurst

Sam Broadhurst, a violent male transvestite, was convicted of causing grievous bodily harm, sexual assault, wounding with intent and theft at Bolton Crown Court in January 2017.

Broadhurst, 25, was jailed for over nine years and will be under an extended three years licence on his release and must notify the police of his address for life.

Broadhurst had broken into the victim’s home then sexually assaulted and stabbed the man while wearing his female partner’s underwear and clothing he had taken from the bedroom. The victim suffered 19 stab wounds to his face, arm, legs, hands and neck but managed to escape with his life by jumping out of a first floor window, despite being injured.

In his victim impact statement he said “I live in fear of the man returning to try to kill me. I’m petrified he might be released and come after me again.”

The judge told Broadhurst “You have a despicable anti-social behaviour trait which is made worse by drink and drugs and causes you to become unpredictable, volatile and violent. You pose a significant risk of causing serious harm to members of the public by commission of further offences.”
