A MAN tried to rip his two-year-old son from the arms of his partner.

But when the woman refused to let go of the youngster, Herbert Dudek then bit her ear and hand to try and force her to release her grip.

Dudek had earlier hit her in their home on Regent Road, Blackpool, the town’s magistrates court heard.

Factory worker Dudek admitted two charges of assaulting his partner and one of resisting arrest.

The bench sent him for sentence at Preston Crown Court.

He was bailed until he appears at the higher court on December 20. He will have to keep a curfew, live at an address on King Street and have no contact with his victim in the meantime.

Pam Smith, prosecuting, said an argument started after the victim returned home late after she went out to celebrate her birth-day as Dudek look after the child.

They rowed and that continued the following day when Dudek started to drink alcohol and smoke cannabis.

She suffered one assault and then fled outside with the child in her arms.

He chased her down the street and eye-witnesses saw him push her to the ground and try to pull the boy from her.

Witnesses told him to halt and he ran off down the street.

Police later traced him back to the flat on Regent Road where they had to force the door.

When an officer tried to arrest him the lunged at the constable in an attempt to bite him, the court was told.

Hugh Pond, defending, said that Dudek and his partner had come to England in 2010.

He said: “The catalyst to this sorry incident was when his partner came home late from her night out. My client does not drink very often at all and combined with the cannabis matters worsened. He apologises unreservedly for what he did.”
