WHEN he discovered his former partner dressed in her nightie with a man in the house, Dominic Dabrowski assaulted both of them.
The 32-year-old, who lives on Killigrew Street, Falmouth, pleaded guilty at Truro Magistrates’ Court to assaulting Rosalind Lucas, his former partner, and Robert Hill, at Penryn on October 6.
Ron Butler, prosecuting, said although the relationship had broken down last year, six weeks ago Dabrowski started visiting Ms Lucas at her home. There was hope of rekindling their relationship but then, because of problems, Ms Lucas asked him to stop seeing her.
On October 5, Mr Hill visited her home, sleeping on her sofa for the night. She was asleep in her bedroom the following morning at 11am when Dabrowski leaned through her window and wanted to speak to her.
She told him to go and thought he had left, but half an hour later when Mr Hill was leaving, she heard him shouting: “Get off, get off” outside. She found him on the ground with Dabrowski raining blows on his head, shouting: “I am going to kill you.”
Ms Lucas got between them and sent Mr Hill inside to call the police. Dabrowski screamed and pushed her, causing her to fall against a wall and cut her hand. He accused her of being in the house with the other man while wearing only her night dress, saying: “If he can have you, can I have you?”
Mr Hill’s glasses were broken, costing £100, and he had a scratch on his nose.
Dabrowski had previous convictions.
The case was adjourned to October 30 for a probation report. Dabrowski was granted bail on condition he lives in Falmouth, does not contact the two victims, and does not enter Lower Market Street, Penryn.
