A MAN dragged his girl­friend across the floor and shook her in an at­tack at home, a court heard.

Se­cu­rity guards at­tended af­ter re­ports of a dis­tur­bance at the shared prop­erty on Becks Lane, Mac­cles­field.

They saw Jamie Condliffe, 25, and his girl­friend, who were ag­gres­sive, Mac­cles­field Mag­is­trates heard.

The guards checked CCTV which showed Condliffe at­tack­ing his girl­friend af­ter an ar­gu­ment in a com­mu­nal kitchen.

Pros­e­cut­ing, Deb­bie Byrne, said: “The de­fen­dant dragged her to the floor and shook her. An­other male tried to split them up.

“The de­fen­dant was ar­rested and said he just wanted to get her out of the kitchen.”

Condliffe, of Foun­tain Street, Mac­cles­field, pleaded guilty to as­sault­ing her on Oc­to­ber 7 last year.

De­fend­ing, Stephen Rodgers said: “He and his girl­friend were drunk at the time.

“There’s no sug­ges­tion he struck her and the CCTV shows his girl­friend ar­gu­ing and try­ing to get at him too.”

Condliffe was given a 12 month com­mu­nity or­der, fined £120 and must pay £250 costs and £60 vic­tim sur­charge.
