Forty-nine-year-old Vincent Flemons has been charged with eight offences of domestic abuse towards his boyfriend at his workplace in St Albans.

Flemons, of Clarendon Road, Luton, has been charged with strangulation (using the new non-fatal strangulation legislation) and threats to kill on June 10 in Luton.

He was also charged for battery on August 27, and threats to kill, battery, criminal damage and malicious communication on August 29.

Harassment including texts, emails and phone calls took place between August 1 and 29 August at his workplace in St Albans.

Flemons is due to appear before Stevenage Magistrates’ Court on Monday 3 October.

Detective Inspector Claire Richardson-Wabe from the Domestic Abuse Investigation and Safeguarding Unit said: “We have a dedicated domestic abuse unit with the prime purpose being to safeguard victims, whether it is it between family members, same-sex couples or people with disabilities.

“Everyone is treated as an individual and we hope that men and same-sex couples feel empowered to report any form of domestic abuse.”
