A DEAF Huddersfield man said to have tried to throttle his partner at London’s Kings Cross Station must wait to be told his fate.
City of London Magistrates adjourned sentencing of Dean Stanton, 20, of Bent Street, Newsome, until May 18.
The court was told a Police Community Support Officer was forced to break-up a violent domestic dispute involving Stanton and his pregnant partner, Siobhan Keogh, at the station on November 19 last year.
Stanton was convicted of assaulting Miss Keogh.
Prosecutor Mrs Varinder Hayre told the court it was 5pm when Miss Keogh rushed up to the PCSO and gestured with her hands that she had been attacked.
“She indicated she had been grabbed by the throat and that she was pregnant and pointed at the defendant.”
Stanton walked off, ignoring the PCSO, and Miss Keogh chased him into the underground station.
Mrs Hayre said: “The victim tried to stop the defendant and he used his hand to grab her throat and pushed her to the ground.
“The PCSO tried to stop him, but he walked away.”
Police were called and Stanton was arrested, but could not be interviewed because of a lack of a sign-language interpreter.
He was re-arrested in Huddersfield on March 26 and charged.
Stanton, who has two recent police cautions, the last being a similar incident involving the same victim, was bailed until May 18 for sentencing.
