A mum-of-two has been left ‘scarred for life’ after suffering a ‘beast-like’ attack by a man and woman in a bar in a Greater Manchester town during a night out.
Jade Kremner, 33, said she ‘thought she was going to die’ as she was punched, kicked and strangled during the terrifying eight-minute ordeal.
She was rushed to hospital after being jumped from behind in a bar in Oldham in the early hours of Sunday morning (February 11) and has been left with a bump on her head, a 10cm gash on her thigh and swelling of her throat.
Jade said her young twin daughters are now afraid to leave their home after she told them what had happened to their mum. Police say an investigation has been launched but no arrests have been made so far.
What happened to Jade Kremner during her night out in Oldham?
Jade said she was in JLR bar and restaurant in Royton, Oldham, on Saturday (February 11) when a woman came up to her and asked if she was okay.
She claims the woman then put her arm around her shoulder and grabbed Jade by the ‘root of her hair’ then dragged her to the floor. The woman attacked her for a further eight minutes by biting her fingers and ripping her hair out, she alleges.
And Jade said her sister was also attacked and punched in the side and back of the head by a man as she attempted to break the pair apart. Jade said the man then punched her in the head and she has been left with injuries including swelling to her neck from being strangled. She also has numerous cuts on her bum and thighs and medics also found two shards of glass in her foot.
As she recovers from her injuries at home, Jade said: “My windpipe was shutting and closing and that’s when I thought ‘Jesus, I need to try and escape.’
“But I couldn’t escape because she was physically on top of me. I thought I was going to physically die because I was struggling for my breath.
“It’s just horrific because of the scars and the wounds that she has left on my body. It could have been my arteries and I could have been dead.”
What happened after Jade was attacked in the bar?
The single mum immediately left the bar and reported the attack to police, who told her she needed immediate medical attention. When she arrived home, she was sent to A&E in an ambulance where doctors gave her a full body X-Ray, a CT scan and a tetanus jab.
Jade, from Delph in Saddleworth, said: “Even the doctor said he can’t believe this has happened to me. He said he lives in the area himself and goes out there but he said he always avoids JRL because of violent individuals.
“Although the care was brilliant from the nurses, I didn’t physically get seen until I had been there for six hours. At this point, all the wounds where I had been attacked and were open, were not starting to close and heal.
“I was really, really tired and my whole body was going really, really cold. But they did keep checking on me, especially with my BMI. Even the nurses said that what has happened is absolutely vile - I could have been dead.”
Jade has had to tell her identical twin daughters Ocean and Rosabella, seven, about the attack which has made them ‘completely frightened’ of leaving the house.
She said: “They are completely frightened of going out of the house. They keep telling me that they don’t want to go to school next Monday after half term because they don’t want anyone to hurt me. It’s left a massive impact on me and my children.”
Jade added: “They are even saying now at the age of seven, that when they become older that they won’t go out on a night out.
“They already are saying they don’t want to go out clubbing and want to stay in with me because they are scared of people hurting others. They are so, so worried.”
What have police and the bar said?
A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said: “We can confirm GMP were made aware of an incident on Market Street, Royton at around 2am on Sunday 12 February 2023.
“An investigation is now underway into wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm. No arrests have been made at this time.”
JLR Royton has been contacted for a comment.
