A Harefield man has pleaded guilty to assault causing actual bodily harm (ABH) after allegedly forcing his way into a house.
Thomas Jordan, 27, of Bankside Close, pleaded guilty to ABH at court last week for kicking his way into a home in Harefield last year.
Police were called at around 1.30am, on November 9, to reports of a disturbance at Morse Close.
Jordan had forced his way into the property through the front door and went on to assault a man inside.
According to police, the man's foot was injured as he was standing behind the door when Jordan forced his way in.
Jordan then rushed into the kitchen where he grabbed a knife from a drawer. He then threatened the injured man with it by holding it to his throat, police said, before hitting him over the head.
Jordan then fled the house and police were called.
Officers arrived and searched the area but there was no trace of him. He was arrested later that day in connection with the incident and charged with wounding on November 10.
The injured man was taken to the Royal Free Hospital where he was treated for head and foot injuries and has since made a good recovery.
DC Mark Henry said: "The prosecution case against Jordan has been so strong and overwhelming that he was given no other option than to plead guilty to the attack.
“There is no place in Hillingdon for violent offenders like Jordan.
"Every victim receives the highest level of support, respect and understanding and we urge anyone who has been effected by any type of abuse to contact us immediately."
All three people involved in the incident were known to each other.
Jordan entered his guilty plea at Isleworth Crown Court on June 2.
He has been remanded into custody and will be sentenced on June 30 at the same court.
