'I have become a scared mammy' - Woman pretended she was dead after attack by knife-wielding ex

A woman had to pretend she was dead after her former boyfriend came to her home with a rope and a knife and told her he was going to kill her.

However, when Roulston got into the house he completely changed and viciously attacked the woman.

The court was told the terrifying ordeal happened in front of the two-year-old boy.

She fled to a nearby creche facility and contacted gardaí who rushed to the scene.

Officers then managed to burst into the property and found Roulston standing on the stairs with a rope around his neck and he appeared drowsy having taken some tablets.

She regularly takes painkillers and fears what the tablets are doing to her internal organs.

"I live in such fear that I take my youngest child with me everywhere I go, even to the bathroom. I cannot be in large groups.

Roulston apologised for the attack and claimed he didn't remember what had happened during the incident as he was on sleeping tablets for anxiety.
