Our expert says:
It is so tragic that any woman feels compelled to accept such disgusting and dangerous treatment from anyone. If he has assaulted her at work there will be witnesses, so he could be arrested if only she would lat charges. And if she had somewhere safe to stay, she could get a court order forbidding him from appropaching or even contacting her. groups like POWA which specialise in helping abused women should be able to help with more specific advice, including on the issue of safety. Indeed, there is a risk that a rat like that could kill or seriously harm her if she tried to use the law to safeguard herself - but from the sound of that, he is regularly risking her life anyway, so there may be less to potentially lose than one miight think.
