A WOMAN fled her home on Christmas Day, fearing for her safety.
Her husband, who had been out drinking while she made Christmas dinner, threw £1 coins at her back and then kicked his shoe off, which hit her in the face.
Ahmed Samy Mohamed, 32, was made the subject of a two year restraining order yesterday not to contact his wife, Anne Samy, or go within 100 metres of Deeside Community Hospital where she works as a staff nurse.
Flintshire Magistrates Court in Mold also banned him from contacting the hospital.
Magistrates also made a two year community order under which he must carry out 80 hours of unpaid work, follow five sessions of an alcohol programme run by the probation service, and was placed on supervision.
He was ordered to pay compensation of £150 to the landlords of the house where the couple were then living at Bridge Cottages, Ewloe, after he caused damage to the door.
Mohamed, who was also ordered to pay costs of £145, is now living at Somerset House in Chester. The court heard the couple were now divorcing.
Mohamed admitted assault, criminal damage, harassment and a public order offence.
Matthew Ellis, prosecuting, said Mohamed’s wife and a friend Pamela Jones were at home making Christmas dinner and he went out for a drink.
He returned home drunk and had brought a male guest with him.
All four had Christmas dinner and the male guest suggested they should do the washing up.
Mohamed refused and later asked his wife for money and when she refused he kicked the kitchen unit in temper.
He then threw a pocket full of £1 coins at her, striking her to the back, as she carried drinks for their guests, who then consoled her.
The guests left and it was then he kicked off his shoes and one of them hit her in the face.
She feared for her safety and fled from the house. The police arrived to find him intoxicated and he said he had also taken tablets and was taken to hospital.
When he returned and could not get in he kicked the door repeatedly and was involved in a scuffle with the landlord who lived next door.
Mr Ellis said Mohamed had been repeatedly contacting the Deeside Community Hospital, sometimes three or four times a night.
His wife had lost a stone in weight and it was getting to the stage where she was frightened of going to work.
Mohamed would visit the hospital and she had become a nervous wreck who suffered from sleep deprivation.
In a victim impact statement she said if Mohamed did not get his own way he would wake her up and stop her sleeping, believing his behaviour was normal.
Phillip Lloyd Jones, defending, said Mohamed had pleaded guilty and accepted trying to break into the house later in order to go to bed. The reason for trying to contact her was to apologise for what he had done.
His client, a man of previous good character, now accepted the marriage was over. Mohamed did not oppose the restraining order.
He was currently working in Chester and was hoping for a better paid job in a hotel.
