A man who attacked two women – biting, punching, slapping and pulling one of the victims - has been jailed for 32 weeks.

Steven Coulman, 35, of Errol Street, Islington pleaded guilty to assault by beating, breach of a non-molestation order and common assault at Cambridge Crown Court last Thursday (November 15). He was jailed for 32 weeks.

In November last year Coulman’s ex-partner was woken up by him standing over her in her living room in Cambridge. Over a two hour period he then punched, slapped, bit and pulled the victim around as well as verbally abusing her.

The victim suffered bites to her head and hand and bruises and bumps to her head.

In May last year, Coulman grabbed another woman in Cambridge by the throat and hit her in the face and the back of the head.
