AN IPSWICH man who assaulted his partner at their home has been told to keep the peace for a year or he will forfeit the sum of £500.

Bryan Stannard, of Breckon Close, was given a binding over order, which means he must not cause any trouble between himself and his partner during the next 12 months.

Stannard pleaded guilty to common assault at South East Suffolk Magistrates Court.

Gareth Davies, prosecuting, told the court that Stannard had assaulted the woman after a night of drinking at The Cricketers pub in Ipswich on November 11.

He said that he grabbed hold of the victim's clothing around the chest area and also grabbed hold of her face.

Charles Riddleston, mitigating, told the court that Stannard's partner wanted this court case to teach the 40-year-old a lesson.

He said: "The lady in question has said that she doesn't want him to be given a criminal record, but she doesn't want him to get away with it."
