A MAN who assaulted his girlfriend has been called a 'danger to women in relationships with him' by a judge who jailed him for two years.

David Brock, 33, of no fixed abode, appeared for sentencing at Mold Crown Court on January 11 after he pleaded guilty to two counts of causing Sara George actual bodily harm in February last year.

The court heard that Brock subjected her to a sustained attack after the pair had been drinking in her kitchen, before turning violent after reacting badly to messages sent to Ms George.

He accused her of meeting another man, smashed a TV screen with a perfume bottle and proceeded to punch, drag and spit at her across two floors of her house, while making threats to kill.

She tried to escape to a friend's house but Brock found her and continued the assault before he was eventually arrested.

He was bailed under the condition to not contact her which he broke on the same day when, after she agreed to return a jacket to him via his grandmother's address in Connah's Quay, he bit her nose and lips, which the victim said she felt 'pop'.

Judge Niclas Parry, said he acknowledged Brock's early guilty plea but highlighted the fact he was on licence before the first ABH offence and on bail for the second count.

Judge Parry said: "You are a danger to women and women in a relationship with you.

"This is your third conviction for abusing women in a relationship with you.

"You caused her to be so frightened that she fled into the street and hide in a bush; even then you found her and carried on.

"You pestered her when you met, you beat her, you bit her nose and cut her lip.

"All are agreed that the first assault is of the highest cup because of the strangulation and the force involved.

"Your previous convictions are an aggravating feature and the fact that you are on licence and you spat at your victim."

Brock was jailed for 18 months for count one and six months for count two, to be served consecutively, while no further penalty for a charge of destroying property.

A restraining order was set in place banning Brock from being anywhere near, or contacting, Ms George.
