AN ATTACKER has been banned from going to a Herefordshire farm for two years after a string of offences.

Jerzy Kobialka entered guilty pleas to two counts of assault by beating, one count of assaulting a person thereby occasioning them actual bodily harm, and one count of failing to provide a sample for analysis when he appeared before magistrates in Hereford last month.

The court heard from prosecutor Lauren Millichip that the 55-year-old had attacked a woman three times between November 30 and Christmas Day last year.

Kobialka, of Thunderbolt Way, Tipton, was handed a 12-month community order and a two-year restraining order banning him from contacting the woman or going to a farm near Ross-on-Wye. 


As part of his community order, he must abstain from drinking alcohol and comply with instructions of a responsible probation officer, attending up to 20 days of rehabilitation activities.

He was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £400 and a £114 victim surcharge. No order for compensation was made.

For the offence of failing to provide a sample of breath when asked to by a police officer, he was disqualified from driving for 30 months.
