A drunken woman-beater who rammed a metal pole into his girlfriend’s face, poked her eye and punched her during a fit of jealous rage has avoided being jailed.

Bully Jamie Allison had been in a relationship with his victim for around 15 months when he went to her house in Rotherham on June 1 and began interrogating her about her movements earlier that day, Sheffield Crown Court heard.

The boozed up 32-year-old poked his partner in the eye causing her vision to blur before he grabbed a metal pole from her bed frame and rammed it into her chin.

Prosecutor Martin Robertshaw told the court Allison then pushed his girlfriend into the bathroom and, despite her pleas for him to stop, he lost all control and continued to push the metal pole into her face.

His victim’s chin began to bleed and she fell to the floor landing on her left wrist. As she then made her way down the stairs, Allison pushed her causing to fall on her backside and cause pain to her back.

Moments later, as they were both in the bedroom, Allison hit his partner across her face with the back of his hand connecting with her eye. He then knocked her against the wardrobe causing her to hit her head and eye.

Allison refused to leave the house and his partner eventually called her father who went on to call the police – but Allison was no longer at the property.

He was arrested though when he returned to his girlfriend’s home two weeks later. His partner also handed over a recording of a conversation between the pair during which Allison told her to change her statement.

Mr Robertshaw said Allison apologised for what he had done and that he would not do it again if she changed her statement.

The court heard Allison, of Fox Terrace, Ealand, Lincolnshire, had been convicted of assaulting another woman and threatening to “smash her head in” last year.

Despite this, the Recorder Anthony Hawks decided the best option for society would be to suspend any prison sentence so Allison can work on his relationships and drinking.

He said: “You are a violent drunk bully. Quite rightly you have ended up in custody because of your behaviour.”

The Recorder added that his behaviour against his latest victim was “true to form”.

He said: “What is required here from society’s point of view is you stop behaving this way in relationships. It seems to be the best way to achieve that is for you to be living in the community and the probation can do something about your drinking and your ability to have a relationship without violence.”

Allison admitted two counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm, three counts of assault by beating, one charge of criminal damage and one count of perverting the course of justice.

In committing the latest offences he was also in breach of a community order imposed last year for the assault on another woman.

This community order was revoked and he was made the subject of an 18-month prison sentence, suspended for two years. He will also be on an alcohol treatment programme for six months and was banned from having any contact with his victim via a restraining order for five years.

The Recorder Hawks told Allison: “Watch your step.”
