While the police are being tied up with this type of nonsense, someone's house was probably robbed.

Case will never get to court and they will continue to live happily ever after.

I'm sorry, but are you minimizing this woman being assaulted? Wouldn't you want the police to come if you or someone you loved was being beaten with a broom handle?
Maybe think before you add your cynicism to an anonymous comment section.
Our police force isn’t big enough to be stationed at every street corner watching every house for break and enters.

That "man" is not too bright.. Now he is on record for spousal abuse with a weapon, she can choose to bash his head in with a cast iron frying pan or stick a steak knife in his heart and claim self defence, battered spouse syndrome.. Bye, bye tough guy, just returning the "love"!

Could be he took her mode of transportation.

@ROLAND_ROLLY How is assaulting a female is consider a nonsense case? Don't be a hypocrite because it didn't happened to any of your family member. I'm sure if someone was hitting your daughter or sister, you'd be up in arms about justice.

Rolland_Rolly you don't know what you're talking about, stick to baking your cakes and maybe you can eat them too, make yourself expand a little more and squeeze out some more poo.

only cowards beat on women and children, they should receive harsh punishment too. and they should bring in a couple of thugs to show them how it feels to be treated with extreme violence, not being able to defend yourself ,and only suffering the pain of it all.

Frio first and far most it's important to understand that a cast iron pan is for cooking not bashing someone's head in a steak knife is for cutting your steak into smaller chewable pieces and just to let u know no matter what the situation is any kind of abuse does not solve anything but you already know that you must be a sootoday expert or have a degree in assholeanoligy.
