A WOMAN was thrown over a wall, punched, kicked and stripped during a violent assault.

Suleman Khan, 23, of Dunkirk Terrace, off Parkinson Lane, Halifax, initially denied assault, causing actual bodily harm to ex-partner Amy Booth, but later admitted the offence at his trial.

Jailing him for five months at Bradford Crown Court, Judge Roger Scott said: “You terrorised that woman. She was black and blue.”

Judith Naylor, prosecuting, said Khan and 22-year-old Miss Booth had a “rocky” relationship and had split.

But Miss Booth agreed to meet Khan on March 24 to sort things out.

They had a few drinks together and shared a hotel room in Halifax.

Miss Booth left early the next morning, returning to her parents’ home in Greetland.

“She received a phone call while at home on her mobile from the defendant saying that if she didn’t go and meet him in West Vale he would drag her out of the house,” Mrs Naylor said.

As Miss Booth walked to West Vale Khan pulled up alongside her.

“At that point Khan showed Miss Booth two mobile phones, a cordless home telephone, an ID card and house key he had taken from her family home. She realised that she had left the door open in her haste to get out.

“Khan then approached Miss Booth, took hold of her by her clothing and literally threw her over the wall. She landed in some brambles.

“He then removed her tee shirt and jacket and ripped her bra in two.

“He punched and kicked her head.”

Louise Azmi, for Khan, said: “This offence is out of character. There is no history of violence. He has a stable home.”
