A man pulled out some of his partner’s hair in a row over his lost headphones.
Christopher Maylett, of Walpole Road in Crosland Moor, admitting assaulting Rosie Holland as he tried to grab her mobile phone away from her.
She was on the phone to her mother at the time, who called police after hearing the whole incident.
Maylett, 24, was banned from seeing the mum-of-two when he pleaded guilty to charges of assault and criminal damage.
Alex Bozman, prosecuting, said that Maylett had gone to the house to see his daughter.
He told magistrates: “She was putting her children to bed and he wanted to know where his headphones were.
“Her priority was getting the children off to sleep but he kept asking her about the headphones.
“Then he switched off the lights, sat on the floor and said he was not going to move until he got them.
“She rang her mum to say what was going on and he’s grabbed the phone and the complainant by her hair.
“Some of her hair fell out.”
Maylett took the phone from Miss Holland and threatened to hit her over the head.
As she tried to take her mobile back he grabbed her arm and squeezed it.
He then punched holes in the bedroom and kitchen doors as he headed downstairs.
Magistrates heard that Miss Holland’s mother and a neighbour dialled 999 after hearing the commotion.
Zahid Majeed, mitigating, said that the argument became heated after she made a comment about Maylett not being about to see the children.
Magistrates sentenced him to a community order with 20 days of rehabilitation activities.
Maylett also has to pay £85 costs and £85 victim surcharge.
Magistrates made a restraining order banning him from contacting his now ex or going to her home for a year.
