Jealous thug stabbed his ex-partner in the arm at her South Yorkshire home
A jealous thug stabbed his ex-partner in the arm after he had seen she had been in contact with another male on Facebook.
Akos Marton, aged 26, of Sheffield Road, Barnsley, had visited his ex-partner’s home to give money to their daughter for her birthday before he attacked the complainant, according to a Sheffield Crown Court hearing on February 1.
Nick Adlington, prosecuting, said: “There were no issues until 10pm when he asked to see her Facebook account.
"She refused so he slapped her to the face and asked for the tablet.”
Marton saw his ex-partner had been in contact with another male and she told him to go before he went into the kitchen and returned with a vegetable knife with an 8cm to 10cm blade, according to Mr Adlington.
Mr Adlington added: “He pointed this towards her and stabbed her in her right upper-arm.”
The complainant fled the house, according to Mr Adlington, and went to her brother’s home and arranged for her cousin to look after her children.
Marton pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm after the incident on August 15, 2020.
The court heard the complainant suffered a puncture wound to her right arm whch needed hospital treatment and she suffered a superficial wound to her right calf.
Vanessa Saxton, defending, said Marton had been working at a car-wash and at a takeaway restaurant to support his family.
Ms Saxton added Marton has indicated that this is the first time he has been accused of a crime.
She said Marton said he is “very, very very sorry”.
Ms Saxton also claimed Marton’s partner has told him she wants him to return home and she is finding it difficult to manage the children without his assistance.
Judge Michael Slater told Marton: “I cannot sentence you today because I need to know what the views of your partner are about you returning to the family home.”
He adjourned the case for sentencing on February 4 to consider the position of the defendant’s ex-partner after Mr Adlington had requested that a restraining order be put in place.
