A THUG beat his girlfriend with a golf club as she tried to stop him attacking her dog.
Mark Slonecki, 35, battered his partner with a weapon during an argument at his home in Ilkeston, Derbs.
The yob left his victim with a cut to her face and bruising across her body after the brutal attack, Derbyshire Live reports.
Slonecki denied causing assault occasioning actual bodily harm but was convicted and jailed for two years at Derby Crown Court.
Judge Robert Egbuna said: “You picked up a golf club, it was a wedge to be precise and you used that weapon to cause significant injuries to her.
You used it with some force on her and you are fortunate that the injuries were not more severe than the ABH for which you were charged.
“You used it with some force on her and you are fortunate that the injuries were not more severe than the ABH for which you were charged.
“This was domestic violence, you picked up a weapon and attacked her in the way that you did".
Prosecutor Jonathon Dee told the court Sloneckie punched his victim as well as “whacking” her with the wedge club.
He said: “He started to hit the dog, he had done that in the past to get a reaction from her and she tried to stop him.
“She describes him whacking her (with the golf club) and then punching her several times."
Slonecki’s lawyer Joe Harvey argued that his client had struggled with anger management on the day.
