Woman pins housemate and punches him in face for complaining over noisy party

An angry woman "barged" her way into her housemate's room and punched him in the face after he complained about a noisy party.

She left him with a bloody nose after being upset he told the landlord about the wild antics.

Jodie Sainsbury, 30, pinned the man down on a bed, assaulted him and "trashed" his room because she was furious that he had reported her to their landlord, writes HullLive.

He was awoken by loud banging and kicking at the door and heard a woman's voice shouting "Why have you complained to the landlord?"

Hull Crown Court heard how the victim was awoken by loud banging and kicking at the door and heard a woman's voice shouting "Why have you complained to the landlord?"

Jeremy Evans, prosecuting, said that a man living in a Hull communal house complained to his landlord about a party the night before that had caused a disturbance.

One of the people he had complained about was Sainsbury who came into his room with another woman, who watched whilst Sainsbury pinned him to the bed.

Sainsbury punched the man in the face, leaving him with swelling and bruises below the eye.

His headphones and mobile phone were damaged when his room was "trashed".

Sainsbury, of Valiant Drive, Hull, admitted assault causing actual bodily harm and criminal damage on August 3.

"This was not pre-planned or premeditated, it was a spontaneous and short-lived assault," said Mr Evans.

"As a result of the injuries, there were no lasting effects. There was some psychological harm. Clearly, he has been left in fear."

Several days after the assault, Sainsbury was aggressive towards the man again, leading him to become "depressed and frightened."

Nigel Clive, mitigating, said that the crime was impulsive and spontaneous and there was a limited impact on the victim.

"The defendant showed remorse in her interview, breaking down and becoming emotional before making her confession," said Mr Clive.

"She hasn't seen the complainant since. She doesn't go to that part of the city."

Sainsbury had previously been homeless but was now working very hard at a cake factory five or six days a week.

Recorder Richard Thyne told Sainsbury: "You were one of those people he complained about. Rather than apologise, it's clear from his evidence that you broke the door into his room, barged in and trashed the room, breaking headphones and assaulting him.

"You have put the blame on him and don't seem to show empathy or take any responsibility yourself."

Sainsbury was given 80 hours' unpaid work, 15 days' rehabilitation and a two-year restraining order.
