A man suspected of breaking his ex-partner’s jaw tried to give himself up to police – but changed his mind when they took too long to arrive. Benjamin Partridge, 35, went to his brother-in-law Andreas Thomas’s house in Kings Norton, Birmingham last Tuesday and was apparently ready to hand himself in. But after waiting 45 minutes for police to arrive, he gave up and left, taking two cans of cider from the fridge with him.Police frantically searched the area but could not find him. Mr Thomas, 47, said he even left his front door unlocked so police didn’t have to kick it in.
