Angel Paris Jordan, of Myddleton Street, Carlisle, admitted assaulting Matthew Doyle when she appeared at the city’s magistrates’ court yesterday.

Magistrates were told how Jordan, 27, who previously denied the attack, had been to visit Mr Doyle, who lives in a caravan, last December. She needed someone to talk to as she had just split up from her partner.

The pair were about to have sex when they were interrupted by a phone call from Jordan’s mother who said she was coming to pick her up. Jordan began to get dressed and it was then that Mr Doyle realised a £5 note had gone missing.

He accused Jordan of taking the money and she insisted he search her for it, which he did.

An argument ensued until Mr Doyle asked Jordan to leave, which she did. He then left to go to the shops.

A short time later Jordan called him to say she had left something in his caravan and Mr Doyle returned, and another row erupted.

Jordan grabbed Mr Doyle’s hair and punched him in his left eye.

By this time Jordan’s mother had arrived outside and tried to calm the situation down.

Jordan then began shouting that Mr Doyle had raped her and the police were called. She later admitted that hadn’t happened.

She was arrested and in interview claimed Mr Doyle had touched her without her consent.

But an officer spoke to her later about the allegation and she admitted she had given consent for Mr Doyle to search her for the missing £5.

In a later interview Jordan admitted she “may have slapped” Mr Doyle.

However, she claimed in a further interview that Mr Doyle had lunged at her and tried to strangle her and her reaction was proportionate.

After she was asked in the interview if she had been in a relationship with Mr Doyle she denied it, saying; “he was a customer, that’s all”, the court heard.

When asked if she had anything to say Jordan, who was not represented by a defence solicitor, told magistrates: “It seems ridiculous to me – I just want to get it over with.”

She was fined £50 and ordered to pay £100 costs and £50 compensation to Mr Doyle.
