A WREXHAM woman dragged her mother upstairs by her hair during a prolonged attack on family members, a court heard.

Callum Hughes also threw a boot at her father, Peter Hughes, during the violent episode which took place at the family home in Bersham. Afterwards her mum, Pauline Hughes, was left fearing that her hair will never grow back as a result of scarring.

At the time Hughes, who is transgender, was serving a community order imposed for assaulting her mother and a police officer in February.

Prosecutor James Neary told Wrexham Magistrates Court that after Hughes first became aggressive her mother, fearing the worse, left the house. But she was later pushed and hit on the side of the face with an open palm.

"Her mum locked herself in the bedroom for her safety, but the defendant kicked the door and threw a boot at her father which hit him on the head," outlined Mr Neary.

Hughes' violent rage continued and in all she hit her mother six times about her head as well as dragging her upstairs.

A neighbour, who called the police, had his phone snatched off him and thrown to the ground.

Pauline Hughes said in a statement that she didn't think her hair would ever grow back because of the visible scar that had been left.

Callum Hughes, 20, of Foxwood Drive, Wrexham admitted assaulting Pauline Hughes as well as a charge of assault by beating Peter Hughes. She also pleaded guilty to criminal damage to a phone belonging to Bernard Quinn, with all the offences committed on May 14.

Emma Simoes, defending, said Hughes was upset and remorseful.

"She is not proud of her actions," she said.

Wrexham magistrates ruled they did not have sufficient powers to sentence Hughes and adjourned the case for a pre-sentence report to Mold Crown Court on June 21. Hughes was granted conditional bail in the meantime.
