Young Tonbridge mother Chloe Glew jailed for unprovoked racist attack

A young mother with a bad criminal record has been locked up for a vile racist attack after flouting previous court orders that kept her out of prison.

Chloe Glew was told by a judge: “Sadly, you have been unwilling or unable to take advantage of the help made available to you.

“You have failed to comply with a curfew, failed to attend alcohol treatment appointments, failed to generally engage with probation.”

Judge Adele Williams added that as 20-year-old Glew, of Hamble Road, Tonbridge, had not taken advantage of previous court orders, only a custodial sentence was justified.

She was sentenced to 16 months youth custody - eight months for racially aggravated common assault and eight months consecutive for breaching a suspended sentence.

A criminal behaviour order was made for three years to restrict her movements in future.

Glew had launched the unprovoked attack on a woman, telling her: “I’m going to beat your ------- head in.”

She pulled the victim’s hair and punched and kicked her while on the ground.

Maidstone Crown Court heard the woman was walking along an alleyway in Scott Road in Tonbridge in September when Glew appeared and became violent “for no apparent reason”.

During the assault another woman at first seemed to help the victim, but then attacked her also.

“During the unprovoked attack Miss Glew referred to her twice as a dirty ------,” said prosecutor Ben Irwin.

“The victim said she had called her that before over the telephone.

“The racial abuse may have been the motivation for an assault which was completely unprovoked and out of the blue.

She was left with a cut lip, bruising to her legs and back and torn clothing.

"The police found her in a very distressed state.

“The victim was vulnerable and assaulted in a sustained way. There was extreme violence and racist language.”

Glew, who admitted the offence, had been given 12 months suspended for two years for another assault on a woman in April.

She had 11 previous convictions for 20 offences.

Judge Williams said the racist assault was “totally unacceptable behaviour”.

“Such racist language is not to be tolerated in a civilised society,” she said.

Judge Williams said the probation service’s breach report on Glew, who has post traumatic stress disorder and ADHD, indicated she had no intention of changing her lifestyle.

“It concludes that even your 18-month-old son, who lives with your mother, fails to motivate you to change your behaviour,” she continued.

“You have undoubtedly had a disturbed and disrupted childhood and have been diagnosed as having a emotionally unstable personality disorder.

“You have had many opportunities from the courts with community orders and suspended sentences to see if you can take advantage of the help made available and change your behaviour, but you have been unable to do so.”

Glew posted on her Facebook page on the day of sentence: "At court and not being seen u till 2 how annoying who wants to come see me lol."
