Man jailed at Barrow court for attack on pregnant woman

A MAN who assaulted the mother of his unborn child in their flat has been jailed for 90 days.

Michael Peter Marwood was given the sentence when he appeared before Furness Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday March 4. The 24-year-old, of no fixed abode, admitted assaulting Ashleigh Irwin on December 29.

District judge Gerald Chalk told him: “It was a breach of trust and a sustained assault.”

Marwood also admitted criminal damage and possession of cannabis.

Mrs Lisa Hine, prosecuting, said Miss Irwin was pregnant with Marwood’s child and they have been in an “on-and-off” relationship for around 10 years. Marwood kicked Miss Irwin’s leg and slapped the top of her head and banged a broom on the toilet door after she fled inside.

Mr Trystan Roberts, defending, said Marwood, who has previously been sectioned for mental health reasons, accepted his behaviour was inappropriate.
