‘I cheated on her and beat her up daily’: Thug filmed rape of his partner, 21, and threatened to put video online if she left him – then bragged of the injuries he’d caused by posting them on Facebook
- Atlanta Hammond, 21, subjected to daily physical and mental abuse by partner
- Halil Cetinkayali, 30, banned Atlanta from socialising and forced her to quit job
- He repeatedly attacked the mother of one, from Essex, and he even stabbed her
- On one occasion, he raped her as she slept and recorded it to use as blackmail
A woman has recalled the horrific abuse she was subjected to by her former partner – who boasted of his attacks by putting photos of her injuries on Facebook.
Atlanta Hammond, from Braintree, Essex, says she was subjected to daily physical abuse, banned from socialising and forced to quit her job by her ex-boyfriend.
And when the mother-of-one plucked up the courage to leave him, he threatened to publish a video of himself raping her while she slept and post it online.
The 21-year-old, who has a two-year-old son, says her former partner exerted control over her from the time they met in 2013, when she was just 18.
She said Halil Cetinkayali, 30, made her ‘feel like a princess’ – before things quickly turned sour.
Halil, who Atlanta described as a staunch Muslim, made her quit her job as a carer ‘out of respect for his faith’.
And after Googling friends’ names on the internet one day, she found he was using an alias and was wanted by police.
However, when she confronted him, he turned violent, grabbing her throat and said he would post the footage of the two of them online.
The pair stayed together, with Halil abusing her every day.
She told The Sun: ‘I didn’t have to do anything to get hit. Say the wrong thing, answer back, talk to the wrong person.
