A THUG who pushed a woman before punching her boyfriend after the pair saw him urinating in the street has been jailed.

Kophie Fisher-Fitzgerald was already subject to a suspended sentence for an earlier punch-up in a nightclub when he committed the fresh violent offences.

The 27-year-old of Blue Mountains, Wallingford, had already admitted one count of assault, one of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and one of breaching a suspended sentence order.

He appeared at Oxford Crown Court for sentencing on Thursday.

Outlining the case prosecutor Alexandra Bull said the violence took place at about 10.30pm on August 31 last year in Wallingford.

Fisher-Fitzgerald was seen by his two victims urinating in the front door of Coral bookmakers and having an argument with a woman.

When one of the passers-by went to intervene Fisher-Fitzgerald pushed her, causing her to fall to the floor.

That woman's boyfriend then put himself between them and Fisher-Fitzgerald punched the man, causing him to fall to the floor.

He then ran off from the scene and an ambulance arrived.

Both were injured and the man who was punched, the court heard, was left no longer able to breathe through one nostril.

After his arrest it also revealed that Fisher-Fitzgerald was subject to a previously imposed suspended sentence handed to him for another episode of violence.

During that incident he punched his victim once to the face after a night out in Oxford in the early hours of August 28 2017.

He had been out at Atik in Oxford ahead of the Bank Holiday Monday morning attack at about 1am.

The court heard that the victim had sought out the attacker due to an earlier incident and it was when he approached Fisher-Fitzgerald at the bar that he lashed out and struck him with the single blow.

Sumita Mahtab-Shaikh, defending at Thursday's sentencing hearing, said her client was a qualified carpenter and had no drugs or alcohol problems.

She added that the violence involved a single punch and was an 'instinctive' action on the part of her client.

Speaking of the suspended sentence she said that Fisher-Fitzgerald had completed all of the unpaid work element of the order.

Sentencing, Judge Ian Pringle QC said that 'it would have been pointed out to you that if you get into any further trouble it is likely that [the suspended sentence] would be implemented.'

Fisher-Fitzgerald was jailed for a total of 15 months.

That sentence was made up of six months for the assault occasioning actual bodily harm, a conditional discharge for the assault on the woman, as well as nine months from the original suspended sentence.

He must also pay a statutory victim surcharge.
