Police brought a thug to justice after he assaulted his partner in the street.

US national Tayeh pleaded not guilty but was found guilty in his absence. He pleaded guilty to failing to surrender court after he had been confused about the date.

District Judge Naomi Redhouse adjourned the case until February 26 to consider a probation report.

She told Tayeh she needs to know more about his attitude towards women before sentencing.
