Blackburn woman attacked boyfriend

First published in News

A WOMAN attacked her boyfriend after she claimed he had been texting girls asking for sex and when he said he didn't love her, a court heard.

Rebecca Tootle, 20, had grabbed Matthew Moran's arm, began to punch and kick him and tried to knee him in the groin.

She then ‘unleashed’ a string of expletives before going into her grandmother's house in Accrington.

Burnley Crown Court was told how the victim, who had then been in a relationship with the defendant for just three weeks, was left concerned and shaken by what happened and went to the the police, but did not co-operate with the prosecution.

Jobless Tootle, who has two offences on her record and struck while subject to a conditional discharge, wants to work for the RSPCA. She admitted assault by beating.

The defendant, of Spring View, Blackburn, was given a community order with a 31-day curfew, between 9pm and 6am and was ordered to pay a £60 victim surcharge, by Judge Jonathan Gibson.

Mercedeh Jabbari, prosecuting, said: "The defendant was arrested, taken to the police station and interviewed. She made admissions to having hit and punched Mr Moran and stated she had a reason for doing so because he had been texting some girls, she says, asking them for sex."

Mark Lamberty, for Tootle, said: "I accept it's an unpleasant offence and it went on for some time."

The barrister continued: "She is certainly in need of some support. She is depressed about appearing before the court. She is interested in training to work with animals, perhaps for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals."

Rebecca has well-muscled arms and might make effective use of the sword. Matthew is lucky to have escaped with a kick or two and some verbal insult.

Typical wants to work for the RSPCA and having no consideration for fellow human mankind.
Aren't they all like that these fake animal lovers. House a dog but ignore the homeless. Recent city survey confirmed the majority separated couples would prefer living with a dog.
Welcome to the modern world.

If this had been the other way around the corrupt organisation Women's Aid would be asking why he wasnt sent down and DV only happens to Women. Thats a fact.

Andy,
I know of a case that should be taught to all small boys, just after they reach puberty and it's all about women..
John (real name), was a drunken abuser of his wife.
He was, in the bar, a real man's man..
but at home, his drunken abusive ways, went too far...
And so, one night, after a beating from him, she took up a carving knife, then sliced off his entire manhood!
He screamed: She left..
Throwing the offending article out of the car window, as she went,
and that is true story of, John Wayne Bobbit.

I have two children, both married girls, each of them knowing of that case..
Their husbands, by dint of my past, consider me, a scary man..
but I say to them; I don't sleep with them, you do..
Need I go on?

Having had the privilege of dealing with Ms Pollard...sorry Tootle, in the past it's hardly surprising her boyfriend was looking for sex elsewhere. I would imagine the experience of coitus with Ms Pollard, sorry Tootle, would be akin to chucking a carrot beneath a motorway bridge whilst getting an earful off Fergie following a particularly harrowing first half.
