Emma Price, prosecuting, said the couple began arguing and the defendant accused his partner of cheating. Mrs Price added Wood threw his partner to the floor and kneeled on her and punched her.

The complainant fled, according to Mrs Price, and when she returned she found a TV, a window and a mobile phone had been damaged. Wood, who has no previous convictions, pleaded guilty to assault by beating and to causing damage. Magistrates adjourned the case until August 23 for sentencing.
