An 18-year-old car-jacker who left a young woman partially blind in one eye following a hammer attack as he tried to steal her Audi has been jailed for nine years. Majid Ali repeatedly struck Blythe Mason-Boyle across the head before taking her Audi A1 from Coventry Road, Sheldon, Birmingham, in March last year. The 24-year-old victim suffered cuts to her face and a fractured eye socket shortly after leaving a gym. West Midlands Police have shared a shocking image of her injuries following the sentencing of Ali. Miss Mason-Boyle now struggles to see clearly through one eye and has received counselling to overcome the trauma of her ordeal. Detectives traced the stolen Audi within 24 hours and Ali was identified as the prime suspect. A warrant was later executed at his home and the hammer was found hidden underneath a sofa bed.
