A teen thug attacked his pregnant partner and called her a "fat s***" because he ran out of spice.

Bailey Tyson, 19, of Great Thornton Street in Hull assaulted his partner with a metal pole from his wardrobe last year and she was forced to protect herself and her unborn child.

Stephen Littlewood, prosecuting, told Hull Crown Court on Tuesday said Tyson told the woman she should kill herself and her child after realising he had run out of the drug.

The court heard Tyson became "abusive and aggressive" and "punched her".

Judge Mark Bury told the court: "She curled up into a ball to protect her baby. He hit her with a wardrobe pole three times in her arm. He hit her in the back and kicked her in the side."

The woman went to the toilet and took the opportunity to flee, stopping only when she reached the bus station and was able to get Wifi to message her mum who ordered her a taxi home.

She was left with bruising. Tyson called the woman, apologising for what he had done, but thecourt heard the relationship is now at an end.

Tyson has eight previous convictions for 13 offences including dangerous driving for which he received a suspended sentence for in 2019.

He breached this sentence when he carried out the attack on his partner.

Dale Brook, mitigating, said: "He feels very strongly that he doesn't want any further contact with the complainant and the feeling appears to be mutual. Perhaps the most important piece of mitigation is his age and the related immaturity.

"He is a young man who has faced some challenges in his life. He doesn't have qualifications behind him and hasn't shown the skill to get to work and make something of his life. He is a young man and he is idle.

"He has used cannabis and spice and he has some depression and he really needs to make something of his life."

Judge Mark Bury jailed Tyson for 18 months which he will spend in a Young Offenders' Institute.

He told him: "You're immature and that may have been, in part, to blame for the way you reacted and took it out on her when you had no spice left."
