A Camborne woman smashed a glass over another woman's head in a drunken brawl. 

Nicole Kathleen Caddy, 32, of Weeth Road, was on a night out with a group of friends on Saturday January 26, the day before her birthday. 

She started drinking in the afternoon, and later on in the day visited a pub where she ended up launching an assault on another woman.

The whole incident was caught on a four minute long video shown to magistrates, and chair John Aldred described it as a "sustained" and "completely unprovoked" attack. 

Her victim suffered minor cuts and scratches and said that she has suffered headaches and has been too scared to leave her house since the incident, although Caddy claims that the victim came to her address making threats the following week. 

Caddy had no recollection of the assault in the pub, and declined to answer any questions in a police interview. 

Defence solicitor Elliot Moore said that Caddy was unable to say what the motivation was behind the attack or what had triggered it, but magistrates believed she did show remorse when appearing in court yesterday (Monday April 15). 

Mr Moore also stated that she was having personal problems at the time, living with her mother and struggling to find accommodation for herself and three children.

Another factor in her defence was the death of a family member, and the anxiety and depression she suffers from and takes medication for. 

Magistrates accepted that the attack was not premeditated, and that it was the result of Caddy being drunk. 

She pleaded guilty and was sentenced to a 12 month community order with a ten day rehabilitation requirement. 

As part of the order, she is subject to a curfew with electronic monitoring between 7pm and 7am for six months. 

Caddy was also ordered to pay £100 in compensation to the victim and a victim surcharge of £85 at the rate of £10 per week.
