A violent drunk who bit a woman’s face and repeatedly punched her has been caged.
Rafal Wylupek burst into the woman’s room at a house in Hoaden Lane, Ash, near Canterbury on February 10.
The 37-year-old admitted assault at Canterbury Crown Court and was jailed for two years and three months.
He had been drinking while watching a film when he entered a bedroom at the house and launched an unprovoked attack on the woman.
The court heard that during the sustained assault, Wylupek bit the woman’s face on numerous occasions and repeatedly punched her.
When the victim cried out in pain, he then grabbed her around the throat and threatened to kill her.
Following the incident, the victim attended hospital where staff alerted officers to injuries which included two black eyes, multiple bite marks to the face and chin and bruising to both arms.
PC Cameron Temple, the investigating officer for the case, said: “Wylupek is guilty of an inexcusable and prolonged assault which was entirely unprovoked.
