A horrible father threatened to cut the unborn kid from his pregnant ex in a jealous rage.
After subjecting his child’s mother to severe attacks during their vicious four-year relationship, Ian Hindmarsh left her with suicidal thoughts, a court heard.
In a four-year abusive relationship in which he spat at her, punched her, and pulled her by the hair, a father threatened to cut out his ex-unborn girlfriend’s kid in a jealous rage, a court heard.
During their relationship, Ian Raymond Hindmarsh, of Billingham, Stockton-on-Tees, subjected his partner to a series of violent assaults.
Prosecutor Alan Davison told Teesside Magistrates’ Court that the couple had been together since January 2016 and that the attacks began the same year they met.
In July 2016, it was reported that he accused his partner of being pregnant with someone else’s child and threatened to cut the baby out of her stomach during an altercation.
Hindmarsh pleaded guilty to harassment on one count.
According to the court, the 32-year-old accused the woman of having feelings for his brother, forced her into the sofa, and viciously strangled her from behind.
According to Teesside Live, Mr Davison claims Hindmarsh leapt on top of her and put his teeth on her nose out of “frustration.”
“She awoke the next morning, looked in the mirror, and saw a mark on her cheek,” he explained.
“At the time, they stayed together on the condition that Mr Hindmarsh attend anger management sessions.”
During another dispute, he leaped on top of her and put his hands around her throat, according to the prosecution.
He said Hindmarsh spat at her, struck her across the face, and threw a glass of water over her after telling her he wanted to end the relationship.
Mr Davison claimed he also hurled her phone, picked up and tossed his Xbox console, and grabbed her by the hair.
On another occasion, the defendant smacked her in the face with a plastic cup filled with juice, rushed out of the house, and threatened her with violence.
“The incidences caused her mental illness,” Mr Davison said, “and she said she began writing letters to her children wanting to commit herself.”
Hindmarsh, of Billingham’s Stanhope Road, admitted to one count of harassment.
“This was a tumultuous relationship, so it wouldn’t surprise you to hear it was a terrible relationship, I’m told,” defense attorney Matthew Ager told the court.
“To be fair, Mr Hindmarsh has been really helpful. The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
