Martins Bukovskis, 26, attacked the woman following a party at his home address in Gladstone Street, Peterborough, on January 27.

The court heard how Bukovskis repeatedly punched the victim and dragged her around “like she was a toy” after he had consumed alcohol and smoked cannabis. The woman, who is in her 20s, received a broken rib, internal bleeding, a fractured eye socket and wrist as a result of the unprovoked attack.

Bukovskis pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis and GBH. Yesterday (March 21) at Peterborough Crown Court he was as sentenced to six years in prison.

PC Amy Davison said: “This was a cowardly unprovoked attack on a victim who could not defend herself.

“Combatting domestic abuse is a priority in the county. As well as the physical injuries, the victim was left incredibly traumatised by the attack. I hope the sentence handed out provides her with some closure.”
