The granddaughter of Berkeley Homes founder Tony Pidgley was viciously attacked by convicted thug and drug dealer Antonio Henry in June 2018.
He hurled a chair and an oil radiator at a terrified Ms Pidgley, and slammed a door on her hand as she tried to flee, leaving her with two broken fingers.
Pidgley claimed that Henry ‘wouldn’t leave her alone’ when she broke off their four-month relationship.
On the day of the attack, she heard a smash at her home in Earl’s Court and found Henry standing in her bedroom when she went to investigate.

Tony Pidgley: The boy adopted by travellers who grew up to found the UK’s largest housebuilder
Tony Pidgley has earned close to £115million in the last 16 years as the founder and now chairman of leading housebuilder Berkeley Homes.
However he had a very humble upbringing, having been born in 1947 in Surrey to a single mother.
His early years were full of hardship, and he spent his early life living in a disused railway carriage.

A former Barnado’s boy who was adopted and raised by travellers, Pidgley left school at 15 to start his own haulage business.
During his childhood, he also worked with his adoptive parents cutting down trees and selling the logs.
He sold he haulage firm when he was 19 and co-founded Berkeley Group in 1976, while he was still in his 20s, which he developed into a FTSE 100 high-flyer.
Pidgley’s wealth is widely seen in the City as just rewards for entrepreneurialism and risk-taking, whereas many other chief executives are seen as managers who have hauled in excessive rewards.
