Cumbrian man attacked partner as baby slept nearby

A 32-year-old man attacked his partner while their baby lay asleep in the room.

Anthony Blaylock started arguing with his then partner, Jenna Nattrass, before pushing her and lifting her up, spitting at her.

Carlisle magistrates’ court heard how the couple were arguing on December 21 when he was at her home and she asked him to leave.

Prosecutor Jane Mackrill said he refused and they started to argue, before he pushed her and she fell over a pushchair. He then grabbed her arm and lifted her up.

She said Blaylock, of Parkgate Cottages, Brampton, picked the baby off the sofa because the noise and shouting had woken him up. Ms Nattrass took the baby from him but told police “he would never hurt the baby”.

Blaylock, who admitted assault, told the court they were both “in an irate mood” and he thought she was going to hit him.

He admitted he shouldn’t have pushed her or spat at her, he said.

Magistrates gave him a 24-month community supervision order, and ordered him to pay £100 in compensation to his ex-partner. He was fined £50 and told to pay a £60 victim surcharge.
