A VIOLENT man who left his girlfriend with a fractured arm and nose in two separate attacks had previously left a former partner with a broken eye socket, a court heard.

Ryan Michael Moors, 26, was given a suspended sentence in August 2018 for inflicting grievous bodily harm.

He was back before Bournemouth Crown Court yesterday for two assaults committed on a young woman he was in a relationship with last year.

Moors, of Grove Road, Wimborne, pleaded guilty to charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and inflicting grievous bodily harm, as well as breaching the suspended sentence.

Judge Brian Forster QC jailed the defendant for three years and issued an indefinite restraining order.

Prosecuting, Keith Hadrill told the court Moors punched and kicked the woman on the evening of June 14, 2020, after a row broke out at her home.

Mr Hadrill said the defendant seemed to have lost his temper when he returned to the address and discovered she was still up.

This led to him attacking her and during this assault she fell to the ground.

The woman had broken her arm but did not get hospital treatment until the following day. Hospital staff were concerned as to how she got the injuries but she said she had tripped on a games console and fallen over.

Around a month later she made a complaint to police and also disclosed another assault which had taken place earlier in the year.

Mr Hadrill said this attack occurred after the woman had run the defendant a bath.

Moors complained it was too hot and when his girlfriend advised him to put cold water in it to cool it down, he became aggravated and punched her in the face.

She went to hospital after this assault but was told she would have to let the nose fracture heal by itself.

Moors was arrested and charged in mid-July of last year.

Mitigating, Rose Burns said the relationship was “volatile” but her client knows he “cannot go on behaving like this”.

Moors told the judge he was sorry for all the pain he had caused and he was doing everything he could to change his life.

Ms Burns said the defendant has ADHD and autism, adding that he acts in an impulsive way and is not able to deal with certain situations.

In passing sentence, Judge Forster QC said:

“The offences were committed on a young woman who relied upon him and trusted him.”

He warned the defendant that he must learn from the situations he has been in because if he comes before the court again for a serious offence, there is a possiblity that a judge will deem him to be a dangerous offender and impose an extended sentence.
