A pizza takeaway worker assaulted his heavily pregnant girlfriend when she accused him of seeing another woman, a court heard.
Daniel Brown pushed his 37-week pregnant partner into the cot where their baby was sleeping after turning up drunk in the early hours of the morning, Lynn magistrates were told.
He then grabbed her phone and stamped on it as she tried to contact police for help.
Brown, 21, who lives above the pizza restaurant where he works in London Road, Lynn, appeared before the court on Friday and admitted assault and causing criminal damage on August 26.
Jane Foster, prosecuting, said the couple had been in a relationship for about 3½ years, and had a 13-month-old son together.
She said on August 25 the victim told Brown to leave after finding out he had been seeing someone else.
He turned up drunk at 4am the following morning and an argument erupted.
Mrs Foster said: “During the argument the defendant received a call on his mobile. The complainant answered it and a female was on the end of the phone, which only added fuel to the argument.”
The court heard Brown then pushed his girlfriend against the cot, where their son was sleeping, before smashing her mobile phone on the floor.
In police interview, Brown denied everything. He said he had gone to his partner’s flat and fallen asleep, and she woke him by pouring water over him. He also told officers the unborn baby was not his.
Mrs Foster said there was a history of domestic violence, with Brown being convicted of damaging his partner’s front door earlier this year.
George Sorrell, for Brown, said: “He didn’t mean to push her. It was a reckless thing and largely because he had been drinking.”
The case was adjourned until October 4 for a pre-sentence report to be prepared with all sentencing options kept open – including custody.
Brown was released on conditional bail until then.
