Man found guilty of assaulting woman in Streatham

A man has been convicted of assaulting a woman following an incident at an address in Streatham


Dylan Mills, 37, of Sevenoaks, Kent was found guilty of common assault following the conclusion of a trial at Wimbledon Magistrates’ Court on Monday, 7 March.


He will be sentenced on a date yet to be set.


The court heard Mills became involved in an argument with a woman he was known to on 8 June 2021 at an address on Fishers Close, SW16.


During the argument, Mills pushed his forehead into the woman’s head and then pushed her to the ground. Police were called and Mills was arrested.


The woman, aged in her 30s, was not seriously injured during the incident.


Detective Constable Hannah Barton, of the Central South Command Unit, said: “Tackling violence against women remains a top priority for the Met and I hope that Mills’ conviction sends a strong message that we, along with others across the criminal justice system, will work tirelessly to bring offenders before the courts.


“I would like to praise the woman who Mills assaulted – she has shown immense strength throughout this investigation. No woman should be subjected to violence of any form and I would urge anyone who finds themselves in this position to trust police – we will investigate and you will be provided with the support you need to help you through.”
