A THUG who stamped on a woman’s head until she was unconscious during a street brawl has been spared jail.

Chloe Cotton, of The Square, Abingdon, had already admitted one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

Oxford Crown Court heard at her sentencing hearing yesterday how the 20-year-old, along with a group of women, got into a street fight outside The Foyer in George Street, Banbury, in the early hours of June 5 last year.

In CCTV footage shown to the court, two groups of women appear to face off against each other with food items hurled between them.

Eventually a street brawl breaks out and during the violence the victim is pushed to the floor and repeatedly punched by unidentified assailants.

Cotton is then seen to kick the woman before stamping on her as she lies unconscious on the ground.

Police then swarmed on the area and Cotton was later charged.
