At­tacker spared jail af­ter as­sault on part­ner

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A MAN who grabbed his part­ner’s neck dur­ing a vi­cious at­tack on her and a friend has been spared a jail sen­tence.

Den­nis An­drew Car­lon, 33, was found ‘hid­ing in the closet’ at his part­ner’s home be­fore launch­ing the at­tack giv­ing her friend a bloody nose when she stepped in, a court heard.

Car­lon, of Danes Square, Mac­cles­field, smashed a win­dow in a door when he left the house af­ter the at­tack, the hear­ing was told.

A pro­ba­tion re­port was pre­pared on Car­lon who could have been sent to prison. But mag­is­trates at his sen­tenc­ing hear­ing told him to ‘im­prove his at­ti­tude to­wards vi­o­lence’ be­fore giv­ing him a com­mu­nity penalty.

Car­lon ad­mit­ted two charges of as­sault and crim­i­nal dam­age. He was given an 18 month com­mu­nity or­der with 80 hours un­paid work for the as­saults with no sep­a­rate penalty for the crim­i­nal dam­age.

Dr John Tuck, chair of the bench, said: “Vi­o­lence will get you into se­ri­ous trou­ble at some point in your life un­less you take the help we’re of­fer­ing you. We hope your at­ti­tude to­wards vi­o­lence will change.”

Car­lon must pay £80 com­pen­sa­tion for the win­dow, £50 to each vic­tim, £85 court costs and £85 vic­tim sur­charge.
