A THUG attacked his girlfriend during a horrific ordeal described as “like a war” leaving the victim permanently disfigured.

John Brewer, 23, is now barred from contacting Jade O’Neill after her turned on her, hitting her with a hoover, dog lead and a mug.

The terrified 24-year-old was left scarred for life following the incident at her home in Possilpark on July 1 this year.

Prosecutor Mark Allan told Glasgow Sheriff Court: “What happened lasted for around an hour and was overheard by neighbours, who later described it to police as ‘sounding like a war’.”

A blood-covered Brewer was found hiding under a child’s bed at the flat.

But, he protested: “I’ve not f****** done anything.

"I want to make sure she is alright.

"She is injured.

"I love you, Jade.”

Brewer was jailed for 18 months after he pleaded guilty to assaulting Ms O’Neill to her severe injury and permanent disfigurement.

Sheriff Martin Jones QC also imposed a two year non-harassment order banning him from contacting the victim.
