Dad assaulted Grantham woman after row about baby

Have your say

A FATHER, who left his 10-month-old child lying in his own urine, admitted assaulting his wife when she tried to throw him out of their house.

Elliot Stevenson, 26, of East Street, Rippingale, who is a recovering alcoholic, had been drinking while his wife was taking her daughters to school and he was babysitting.

Daniel Paulson, prosecuting, said: “She found their 10-month-old son without a nappy, he was lying in wet bed sheets. She believed Stevenson was in drink and she told him to leave the address. There was an altercation and she was assaulted by Stevenson.”

He admitted pushing and holding down his wife after she confronted him. She managed to leave the house and find a neighbour in the street to help her.

Mrs Simpson, defending, said: “A report from social services states his partner does wish for the relationship to be reconciled.”

Stevenson has since contacted Addaction to get help with his drinking problem.

The case was adjourned while a full report was written. Stevenson was released on conditional bail until August 29.
