Langwith Junction man is jailed for attacking sisters

A Langwith Junction man has been locked up for attacking his ex-partner and her sister and damaging property.

A four-year relationship between Shaun Stubbs and Samantha Hamilton ended in May and troubled flared on 3rd July after the pair argued over the phone.

Ms Hamilton returned home after midnight with her new boyfriend, Kyle Troth, and her sister, Louise Hamilton - and Stubbs then turned up at the address.

“Samantha heard him shouting for her to tell Kyle to come outside. He then came up the stairs and she tried to push him out of the house,” Bill Taylor, prosecuting, told Chesterfield magistrates last Wednesday.

Louise Hamilton intervened and, during a struggle in the front garden, Stubbs punched her in the face and threw Samantha Hamilton to the ground.

Stubbs (23) then kicked and dented a side panel in Mr Troth’s Ford Fiesta. “He stood on the bonnet and roof, jumped up and down and the windscreen cracked,” said Mr Taylor.

The court heard that he was on bail not to contact Samantha Hamilton at the time following an incident on 6th June, when he damaged her front door.

Stubbs, unemployed, of Ridgeway, Langwith Junction, admitted two charges of assault and two of damage at Chesterfield and was locked up for 18 weeks. He had previous convictions for violence and disorder.

His solicitor, Kevin Tomlinson, said: “There was a confrontation and he pushed Samantha Hamilton and she fell over. Her sister got involved and he punched her on the head.

“He recognised the car of her new boyfriend and he reacted bitterly to that by jumping on it and damaging it.”

Mr Tomlinson said Stubbs had spent some time at his ex-partner’s address following separation and he kicked her door after she refused to let him in.

He added that Stubbs, a former supermarket warehouse worker, had spent 30 days in custody on remand prior to the hearing.
