A MUM from Chester has admitted pushing a wine glass into another woman’s face after a discussion about benefits became heated.
Anika Fayita Mohamed, 20, of Dorchester Road, Lache, who is pregnant, had denied wounding Sian Wilkie following an incident in Saltney last September but changed her plea.
Mold Crown Court heard how the Miss Wilkie had suffered a nose injury which needed manipulation and possibly further surgery.
Mohamed was sentenced to a 15 month youth custody sentence suspended for 12 months and she was placed on 12 months supervision.
The court heard that she was due to have a baby at any time.
Anne Price, prosecuting, said that Miss Wilkie, 26, had been at her sister’s home in High Street, Saltney, one night in September of last year.
They and a group of friends watched television, drank some wine, and at some point after midnight the defendant turned up.
At about 1.15am, Miss Wilkie was chatting in the kitchen.
There was a debate about people claiming benefits and Mohamed became involved and her voice became raised.
She became angry and approached Miss Wilkie and pushed a wine glass into her face.
“Fortunately the glass did not break,” she said.
The victim’s nose bled heavily, was later manipulated because her nasal bones were displaced. She had also been left with a scar.
Initially interviewed, the defendant denied being present and accused witnesses of “coming up with this story.”
Richard Thomas, defending, said his client accepted full responsibility. She had a four-year-old child, was heavily pregnant and she had never been in trouble before.
