Brockton Superior Court: Bridgewater man convicted for threatening to kill girlfriend

A Bridgewater man was convicted this week of assaulting and threatening to kill his girlfriend last year.

The Plymouth County DA’s office said that 29-year-old Damion Striver was convicted Tuesday on charges including threats to kill and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after pleading guilty in Brockton Superior Court.

Striver’s girlfriend told police that back in January of 2011 he called her and said he was going to kill her, and then came over to her apartment and let himself in with his key. He then pulled all the shades and curtains in the house, got a knife and began sharpening it, and pointed it at the victim when she attempted to leave. Striver then put on a pair of wader hip-boots–according to the victim, he had repeatedly said that when he kills her, he’ll wear those boots to keep the blood off of him. The victim was able to escape and Striver was later arrested.

Striver later violated a restraining order by writing to her and threatening to hurt her if she didn’t drop the order and the charges.

Striver was sentenced to 5-7 years in jail, followed by 5 years of supervised probation.
