A TEENAGE girl was given an 18-month supervision order after she drunkenly assaulted a friend.
Demi Allan, of Southmead, Amble, pleaded guilty to assault, criminal damage and threatening to damage property when she appeared before Alnwick magistrates.
The 18-year-old had turned up at Jodie Knox’s house with her boyfriend and was accused of taking a bank card from the victim’s purse.
Allan, who had been drinking, responded by restraining her and kicking her in the stomach.
She later punched her in the side of the head before she was pulled off by a male friend.
When he pulled her away, she threw a piece of a vacuum cleaner across the room at him. It missed but caused a two to three inch hole in the wall.
The victim began to call the police and Allan threatened to ‘put her windows out’.
According to the victim, the assault took place in front of her 18-month-old child, although Allan denies this, saying the child was in the kitchen at the time of the physical assault.
The court heard Allan accepts that she has issues with alcohol and that she voluntarily engaged with Escape, the drug and alcohol support group, and counselling through her GP.
As well as the community order, Allan must stick to a curfew of 7pm to 5am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for six weeks. She was also ordered to pay £100 in compensation for the injuries and the damage to the wall.
