A young woman who was held against her will for three weeks by her violent partner has spoken of her horror after he hit her with a meat cleaver and choked her until she lost consciousness.

Chloe Fewster, 20, from Hull, was subject to a large police hunt at the start of the year after her controlling boyfriend took her from her family home on Christmas Day last year.

He kept her locked away for three weeks, until she managed to escape him.

As her ex-partner was jailed this week for assaulting her, Chloe has spoken out to warn other women about her abusive ex, who she thought would end up killing her.

‘I went through three weeks of constant daily physical abuse,’ explained Chloe. ‘At times I thought he was going to kill me.’

Last week MacGilvray (pictured), 25, was jailed for three years at Bradford Crown Court, after admitting actual bodily harm and criminal damage against Chloe.

Chloe got together with Allan MacGilvray in October 2020, after meeting him through friends. MacGilvray was at the time under investigation for rape and assault, but Chloe was unaware of that. 

‘I got on really well with Allan, we messaged on Facebook and he took me out for drinks,’ she said. ‘I was working in retail, but he didn’t have a job.’

‘He split with me briefly and I thought there was another girl involved but looking back, I think he was locked up by the police during that time.’

The couple got together a second time but their relationship became increasingly volatile.

And on Christmas Day 2020, MacGilvray, 25, turned up at her family home and dragged her away. 

‘He was furious because I hadn’t answered his calls, because I was in the shower,’ Chloe explained. ‘He demanded I went out of the house to speak to him.

‘He was nice with me until he got me on my own outside and then he dragged me off against my will.’

MacGilvray took Chloe to an address in Scunthorpe, leaving her family with no idea where she was. 

‘He had a knife in his pocket and every time I tried to escape, he’d threaten me and hold the knife to my throat,’ said Chloe. ‘He beat me black and blue. He had a meat cleaver and slashed at my head, face and ears. The cuts were so painful.

‘He put a pillow over my face and strangled me from behind like a choke-hold and made me pass out.

‘He told me if I tried to leave he would kill me. He kept the door locked and he didn’t even let me go the toilet on my own. He had smashed my phone, so I had no contact at all with the world.’

Chloe’s family reported her missing, sparking a huge police hunt, but MacGilvray kept moving her around so that he could not be traced. He also went onto her social media pretending to be her and insisting she was fine. 

The search was briefly called off but instigated again when her family realised she was being controlled.

She added: ‘Once when we had nowhere to stay, he went to a homeless charity but when they started asking questions he grew uneasy and walked out of the hostel.’

Meanwhile her desperate family were putting out appeals for information on social media about her and fearing she was dead. Chloe’s mother, Kerry, was contacted by other women who claimed also to have suffered violence at MacGilvray’s hands.

Three weeks on, Chloe was eventually able to escape when MacGilvray fell asleep, and she ran to the city centre in Lincoln.

‘The police found me and realised that I was missing and injured,’ Chloe explained. ‘I’d lost a lot of weight, I was covered with bruises and cuts.’

Chloe was too scared to go home until MacGilvray was arrested two days later. She wrote a diary of what she had suffered over her three weeks of hell, which was then passed to the police.

Last week MacGilvray, 25, was jailed for three years at Bradford Crown Court, after admitting actual bodily harm and criminal damage against Chloe.

He was also convicted of assaulting a second woman between November 15 and 17 last year but cleared of rape. The court heard he had a history of violence against women.

Chloe now says she feels angry and cheated that MacGilvray has got off so lightly.

She commented: ‘I will carry the scars, both physical and mental, for the rest of my life yet he will serve just one year for what he did to me.’
