A WOMAN charged at a stranger and threw a glass at him causing dental injuries.

Blackburn magistrates heard the victim was shocked by the behaviour of Kelly Marie Wrighton who he had never seen before.

Wrighton, 34, of Mitton View, Clitheroe, pleaded guilty to assaulting Sam Thornber causing him actual bodily harm. She was sentenced to 10 weeks in prison suspended for 12 months and given a 12-month community order with 20 days rehabilitation activity.

She was ordered to pay £100 compensation, £100 costs, £128 victim surcharge and given a restraining order for two years which prohibits her from having any contact with Mr Thornber.

Andy Robinson, prosecuting, said Mr Thornber was with his uncle and as they left a Clitheroe club at about 4am a group of women started being abusive towards them.

“He didn’t know why and was totally shocked when one of them came towards him and hit him,” said Mr Robinson.

“He was so shocked he didn’t even know how many times the woman had hit him.”

Mr Robinson said the victim’s uncle provided a clearer report.

He said the woman “charged” towards Mr Thornber waving her arms and then threw a glass which hit his nephew in the face.

Mr Thornber was awaiting NHS treatment to his teeth which will cost £269.

Mr Robinson said Mr Thornber did not know the defendant but requested a restraining order because Clitheroe was a small place and it was possible he could bump into her.

Zabair Afzal, defending, said his client, a mother of three, had pleaded guilty and did not want minimise her role in the incident.
