A FATHER assaulted his deaf teenage partner after claiming they were not having enough sex.
At Truro Magistrates’ Court Mohammed Akbar Ali, 26, living at an address in Basset Street, Camborne, pleaded guilty to assaulting Emily Rose George at St Austell on July 6.
Gail Hawkley, for the prosecution, said he and the profoundly deaf 18-year-old victim had a six-month-old child and were living in emergency accommodation at the Queen’s Head Hotel in St Austell at the time of the offence.
After going out together when he drank more than her, he began complaining that they did not have enough sex.
He did not accept her claim that she was tired due to looking after the baby, and told her she was boring.
He pushed her in the face, causing her to scream out for help and fall back on the bed, before pushing him off her.
When he realised she had called the police he climbed out through a window.
In hospital, Ms George had a large lump on her forehead, and grazing, reddening and swelling to her nose.
Ali told the police that after sexual activity Ms Rose had lunged at him, and said he caused her injuries in self-defence.
He claimed she had punched and kicked him.
“Something kicked off, I can’t think quite what,” he said. “I think it was about sex, and she just went for me, I defended myself.”
Ali was given a 24-month community order with requirements for alcohol specified activities and building better relationships.
A restraining order was made to protect the victim and he had to pay her £100 compensation.
