Jay Peeks, 27, waited at his former partner’s flat and then launched the savage attack when she arrived at 4am on May 6.
Manchester Crown Court was told that Peeks, who did not live with his victim but had a key to her flat, had shouted: “Where have you been, you slag?”
He then grabbed scissors from a kitchen draw and cut off a big clump of her hair.
Lindsay Thomas, prosecuting, said: “She was crying hysterically. She tried to get away from him, but he grabbed hold of her and started to tear off her clothes. She pleaded with him to stop. She was naked at that point and sat in a corner crying. She describes herself as being petrified.”
The court heard that Peeks went out of the room and returned with a pair of hair clippers and shaved off part of her eyebrow. He then took photographs of her before she managed to find some other clothes and escape into the street, where she flagged down a taxi.
The next day Peeks sent her the photographs in a series of abusive text messages. When she finally returned home, she found that Peeks had cut up her £1,000 [$1590 USD] handbag, had destroyed a pair of shoes and had left her torn up clothes on the kitchen floor...
Peeks admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm and criminal damage... [The judge] jailed Peeks for 14 months for the assault. She jailed him for two months concurrently for the damage he caused.
