At­tacker mopped up his part­ner’s blood with top

South Wales Evening Post - - NEWS -

PON­TYPRIDD A man punched his girl­friend then tried to mop up her blood with his top as she screamed for help. Corey Mcdon­ald, aged 23, un­leashed a vi­cious at­tack upon his for­mer part­ner Lucinda Way near his home in Tre­for­est, Pon­typridd, on Au­gust 4. The cou­ple had been at a party in Barry the night be­fore but the de­fen­dant left af­ter he be­came ag­gres­sive with some­one. But when Ms Way found him the next day he told her to get out of a car be­fore de­liv­er­ing a flurry of blows to her face. Af­ter the as­sault Mcdon­ald took his top off and started mop­ping up blood on the floor as Ms Way got to her knees. In his po­lice in­ter­view Mcdon­ald de­nied as­sault­ing Ms Way but claimed both of them were in­tox­i­cated and there had been some “push­ing and shov­ing”. He later pleaded guilty to as­sault oc­ca­sion­ing ac­tual bod­ily harm. Mcdon­ald, of Ruler Way, was jailed for a year at Cardiff Crown Court yes­ter­day and was made sub­ject to a re­strain­ing or­der pre­vent­ing him from con­tact­ing Ms Way.
