An Ipswich man who punched his partner in the eye and threw a deodorant can at her while she was holding their seven-month-old baby has been given a suspended prison sentence.

Shaif Ahmed lost his temper when his partner snapped at him and told him to be quiet after he got up to get ready for work, Ipswich Crown Court heard.

He kicked her while she was on the bed next to their son and then punched the back of her head, said Emma Nash, prosecuting.
