59-year-old delivery driver, Hussein Alinzi, assaulted his 15-year-old daughter with an iron bar on the morning of her GCSE exam.
He dropped her off at school early and found the gates locked.
Alinzi confronted his daughter, accusing her of planning to secretly meet a boy as she was wearing makeup.
Alinzi’s arrest followed the assault, and he later admitted to the charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, despite initially providing a no-comment interview.
The court proceedings revealed that the violent attack transpired outside Whalley Range High School in Manchester on June 22, 2022.
The prosecutor, Wayne Jackson, revealed the details of the attack:
“The defendant drove her to school and arrived at the gates at 7:30 am, only to find they were closed.
“The defendant then began to shout at his daughter and accused her of wanting to come to school early, so she could meet a boy.
“He then shouted at her for wearing makeup when in fact her mother asked her to cover up her facial bruises with makeup following previous incidents.
“He then pulled out a metal bar, measuring 30 cm in length, from underneath the car seat and struck his daughter a number of times to the arm and head whilst continuing to shout at her.
There was also evidence of him biting her on her left temple.
“After briefly losing consciousness, she came around and attended school to sit her English exam.
“However, she felt dizzy and nauseous, was removed from the GCSE English exam she was taking and was taken to A&E.”
Through the prosecutor, it was revealed that the daughter’s makeup was an attempt to conceal bruises from previous assaults by her father.
