Man ordered to stay away from partner after assault

Either he was mad when she wouldn’t have sex or he objected to her “partying lifestyle” — either way, a man who assaulted his partner has been ordered to stay away from her.

In this particular case, the Brandon Sun isn’t naming the offender to protect the identity of the victim of the domestic assault.

The man pleaded guilty on Monday to the assault and to theft for taking the victim’s cellphone.

Crown attorney Grant Hughes said that the woman was beaten by her partner on June 10.

The couple was lying in bed when the man wanted to have sex with the victim. When she said no, the man took out his iPod and said he would have girls send him pictures.

An argument began and the man walked around the bed, grabbed the woman by the hair, and repeatedly kicked, elbowed and punched her.

When she stood up to leave the room, he threw deodorant at her, then threw her out of the room and locked the door.

Two days later, the woman awoke to find her partner unplugging her cellphone.

She didn’t think much of it initially, but when she questioned the man about it later, he admitted that he’d walked two blocks and thrown the $600 device away.

The offences came to light when both went to the Brandon police station on June 12.

The 20-year-old offender has an entirely different explanation for the assault. Defence lawyer Ryan Fawcett said the man claims he assaulted his partner over her “partying lifestyle.”

Judge Donovan Dvorak imposed a one-year conditional discharge that includes an order to take anger management and domestic violence counselling, and an order to pay for the phone. The man also can’t have contact with the victim.
