Jilted woman stabbed bloke in head while he was having sex with love rival

A jealous woman who stabbed a bloke in the head after he rejected her before sleeping with a love rival has managed to dodge jail.

Alisha Oakley almost knifed Reece Tyler in the brain after she picked up the weapon and attacked him from behind while he was having sex with another female at a party.

Mr Tyler and Oakley were both enjoying a boozy bash alongside mutual friends, when Oakley, who was 19 at the time, tried to kiss him.

But Tyler rejected her advances and then slept with another woman in a room nearby, which sparked Oakley to charge at him with a knife.

Last Wednesday (June 1), Canterbury Crown Court heard how the now 23-year-old was suffering from a psychotic episode at the time of the incident.

In a statement read to the court, Mr Tyler said: “All that happened is I rejected her and (I worry) if I reject another girl I could be stabbed.

“I’m lucky to be alive. The assault could have left me with brain damage or, at worst, I could have died.

“I walk past girls in the street and I’m worried about what they would do. I have lost my faith in people. This assault has affected me as I can’t trust another girl again.”

The court heard psychiatric evidence that Oakley, who also has links to Margate, has since been diagnosed with emotional instability disorder.

Probation reports deemed her “low risk” of reoffending, but a “medium risk” to future partners.

Oakley, who was 19 at the time of the stabbing in October 2018, was handed a suspended prison sentence – having previously pleaded guilty to Section 18 wounding with intent.

Supported by family in the public gallery, Oakley, who now lives in Darwen near Blackburn, Lancashire, was ordered to complete six months of drug rehabilitation requirements.

Speaking after the hearing Mr Tyler, who was not present in court, said: “Doctors told me the wound was just two centimetres from my brain. I’m lucky to be here, it is a crazy thing that happened to me.

“In this case, the punishment doesn’t feel firm enough – it doesn’t feel like justice has been served.

“The trauma has caused me a lot of anxiety around women, it has affected my relationship with my daughter because I can’t play with her like I used to and it has affected my work.

“I believe the courts have been too lenient.”
