Sheffield thug repeatedly 'stomped' on girlfriend's head
A Sheffield thug who "stomped" repeatedly on his vulnerable girlfriend's head while she begged him to stop has been ordered to get drug treatment.
Kane Parker's partner rang 999 at 8am, on Sunday March 1, and officers apprehended him near her Stanwell Close home, said prosecutor Richard Sheldon.
"She was begging him to stop and she had a pre-existing head injury," he told Sheffield Crown Court, on Friday. "She was a vulnerable victim."
"She didn't want the defendant to be punished for what he had done."
She was left with "lumps and bumps" and a suspected broken finger.
Parker told police she "demonstrated violence to him."
The court heard he has previous convictions for assault occasioning actual bodily harm, following a fight at Owlerton Greyhound Stadium, in 2015, for which he received 21 months in a Young Offenders Institution, as well as battery in 2018 and assaulting an emergency worker in 2019.
Tim Gaubert, mitigating, said Parker had "a troubled upbringing" and has "ongoing mental health problems."
"He has expressed proper and genuine remorse. He has served four months on remand and this has caused him to think very carefully about where his life goes from here.”
Mr Gaubert said Parker has issues with anger management, drink and drugs. He said the couple had argued after drinking and taking drugs.
Parker, 24, of Linden Road, Ecclesfield, pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm, on May 22.
Judge Sarah Wright sentenced him to 12 months, suspended for two years, with 30 days of rehabilitation and nine months of drug treatment.
