A teenager who attacked his girlfriend in a McDonald’s in Mansfield has been jailed for 22 weeks.

Zack Hurt (19) then attacked her in her home a month later while out on bail.

Hurt, of no fixed address, admitted two charges of assault at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court.

The court was told that the pair had got into a heated argument in the restaurant on Westgate over phone messages, and he threw a lip salve at her, striking her on the forehead

He was arrested and bailed, but was under strict orders not to contact his partner.

However, at 3.15am on 24th June he went to her flat on Layton Burroughs while drunk and demanded to be let in, even trying to climb the drain pipes. She eventually let him in.

They got into another argument after he went into the bedroom where their baby boy was sleeping, looking for a lighter.

He grabbed her and slammed her head into the wall, before grabbing her by the throat. His friend who came with him then tried to get him off her.

Defending, David Grant said: “ He accepts he has got himself into an impossible position. His family have told him that this relationship has to come to an end, and he accepts his behaviour has put him over the custody threshold.”

He was ordered to pay £150 criminal courts charge and an £80 surcharge.
