A DRUNK man who attacked his partner in a ‘serious and sustained’ assault has been warned all options are open for his sentencing.

Miles Hamilton, of Byfield Rise, subjected Ophelia Blakeway to the attack after he returned from a Christmas party about 2am on December 13, Worcester Magistrates Court heard last Friday (January 16).

Miss Blakeway, who has been with the 23-year-old for three years, was reluctant to let him in at first so he started kicking the door before she finally allowed him inside.

While sitting on the sofa Hamilton slapped his partner so she rang a friend and went upstairs but he followed her, pushed her onto the bed and pinned her down with his knee, the court was also told.

Hamilton then grabbed her round the throat and hit her around the head and body before police arrived about 3am.

District Judge Nigel Cadbury said: “This was a serious assault and a sustained assault that went on for some time and injuries were caused.

“This also took place when you were drunk late at night and in the presence of a child, they are all aggravating features which means the court will be looking at all options.

“This does not rule out the court looking at a prison sentence.”

Hamilton will be sentenced at the same court on January 30.
