A JEALOUS care worker launched a five-hour assault on his partner after accusing her of cheating on him.

Blessing Masukume, 25, punched and throttled partner Sarah Blackwood, 22, at their flat in Glasgow’s Easterhouse.

During the violent attack, Miss Blackwood feared she was going to die.

Masukume, who works in the care sector, pleaded guilty today at Glasgow Sheriff Court to two assault charges over a period of two years and a breach of bail.

A brutal attack after Miss Blackwood’s father’s birthday party in February 2017 made her believe she was going to die.

Prosecutor Harry Findlay said: “Makusume made allegations about Miss Blackwood’s infidelity which she refuted.

“He punched her on the back and got on top of her and pinned her down when he continued to ask if she had cheated on him.

“Every time she said she had not, Makusume would punch her in the face.”

During the five-hour attack, Makusume would choke her and let go when she started to lose consciousness.

Mr Findlay added: “At one point, she decided to agree with him and say she was cheating to see if he would stop assaulting her, but he continued.

“She thought she was going to die.”

The court also heard the brute would try and stop his partner from going out with friends

Makusume also choked Miss Blackwood until she was close to passing out after she went to a concert with a female friend.

After another assault which required hospital treatment, Miss Blackwood decided the relationship was over and contacted the police.

Sheriff Johanna Johnston QC remanded Makusume in custody and deferred sentence until next month.
