Heiress to £310m Berkeley Homes property empire hunted by cops 'for assaulting two officers' days after her ex was jailed for attack

COPS are now hunting for property heiress Chloe Pidgley after she allegedly assaulted two officers days after her ex was jailed for attacking her.

Chloe, 26, was punched and kicked in the face by Antonio Henry and threatened with an acid attack when she dumped him after four months.

The 29-year-old slammed a door on her hand, leaving her with two broken fingers, and hurled a chair at her, Isleworth Crown Court heard.


Henry, from Ealing, was sentenced after admitting to assault occasioning actual body harm and criminal damage.

Police yesterday issued an arrest warrant for Pidgley after it was alleged she'd attacked two cops just four days after her boyfriend was jailed for beating her up at her home in Earl's Court, West London.

Pidgley had failed to show up at Westminster Magistrates' Court over allegedly assaulting PCs Calum Jackson and Jake Harris.

She has not yet entered a plea over the charges, and none of the details of the alleged assault were heard in court.


The Evening Standard reports the granddaughter of Berkeley Homes founder Tony Pidgley had confronted Henry about messages he had sent to her and her family five days before the attack.

She said she heard a "smash" and found Henry in her room, before he launched an assault on her.

She told the newspaper "I could have been killed", adding: "I couldn’t move or breath. Even with blood everywhere he still wouldn’t stop.

“At one point I stopped screaming and tried to plead with him.

"I couldn’t even fight back because it seemed there was no point, so I stayed lying in the foetal position.

"I feel so much safer now. I’m so happy. I just feel like it’s a fresh start."


Ms Pidgley, who was in court to see Henry sentenced, broke down in tears as the judge passed the sentence of 21 months.

Henry has a long history of convictions dating back to 2003 mainly for offences of violence including assault causing actual bodily harm.

His record also includes offences of battery, harassment, threatening words and behaviour and conspiracy to supply class A drugs.

A restraining order preventing him from contacting Ms Pidgley was also issued.

Her mother, Denize Hewitt, had revealed that her receptionist daughter called for help mid-attack, telling The Sun: "She screamed down the phone.

"I dialled 999. I thought she would be dead."

A Met spokesman had said at the time: "Police were called at 20:05hrs on Monday, 18 June to a residential address in Warwick Road, Kensington and Chelsea, following reports of a female resident having been assaulted.

"Officers attended with LAS [London Ambulance Service] colleagues.

"The victim had been at home at the time; after hearing a smash, she went to her bedroom and discovered a 29-year-old male, who was known to her, had broken into the premises.

"The male then attacked the victim before fleeing the scene.

"The victim was conveyed to a central London hospital where her injuries were deemed not life-threatening or life-changing."

Tony Pidgley is the founder of the famous property developer Berkeley Homes and thought to be worth a staggering £310million.

Both Chloe and her model sister, Chantelle, reportedly received a "coming of age" sum of £1million each.
