A tattooed thug who broke his girlfriend's neck and jaw in an attack so violent it left her children unable to recognise her has been jailed.
Ricky Wilding repeatedly smashed the victim's head against a television stand and stamped on her before fleeing on his motorbike and leading police on a wild chase.
He also texted the woman after he had left, calling her obscene names and claiming she had deserved it.
The 22-year-old, from Swindon, Wiltshire, was caged for six years and eight months following the sickening attack on the mum-of-two in July.
James Tucker, prosecuting, said Wilding, himself a father with another child on the way, had joined his then girlfriend, her son and sister as they walked home one evening.
He then demanded to see her phone, scrolling through messages.
As they got to the house, his girlfriend had attempted to pull shut the door chain to prevent Wilding from getting inside.
Mr Tucker said: "He smashed the door in.
"Before she could close it he effectively ran at the door and kicked it, proceeding to beat her violently to the extent that she lost consciousness and doesn't recall anything of the prolonged assault until she woke up in hospital."
Wilding was said to have pulled his girlfriend's sister's hair, before beginning his assault on the mother of his child.
He grabbed her arm, threw her against the wall and dragged her by the hair as her child cowered nearby.
He then repeatedly hit her head against a television stand before stamping on her face while she lay unconscious on the floor.
Her jaw was broken in two places and he had partially broken one of the vertebrae in her neck.
Wilding then fled on his motorbike and was pursued by police in a chase that saw him mount the pavement and drive so dangerously that officers called off the pursuit for fear members of the public would be injured.
In a victim personal statement, the young woman said the attack had left her unable to smile without it causing her pain and that her own children had not recognised her.
She asked Wilding: "How could you do such a horrendous attack on the mother of your children to the point where you made them scared of me?"
Swindon Crown Court heard Wilding had a record of abusing partners.
One, who had been peppered with calls from an imprisoned Wilding despite a restraining order banning him from contacting her, said: "I don't believe he will ever change and will always be a serious risk to women."
That former partner, who had met Wilding in a hotel earlier this year in contravention of a restraining order, had been pushed to the floor by him in the car park of a local retail park in February.
Rob Ross, defending, said his client had been abused as a child and had essentially left home at 15.
Wilding, who worked as a mobile hairdresser, recognised he had a problem and had researched prisons where he could do courses aimed at domestic abusers.
Mr Ross agreed his client would be a risk to women were he not to complete rehabilitative work.
Sentencing him on Thursday, Recorder Richard Shepherd said: "It is clear that you are a bully. It is clear that you are controlling. And it is clear that you are a very violent man."
"It is pleaded on your behalf that you are a young man and it's right to point out that you are 22-years-old.
"But you are not 17, you are not 18, you are not 19. You are 22. You are behaving like a man, you will be treated like a man."
Wilding was handed six years and eight months imprisonment for the GBH offence, with three months for common assault, 12 months for dangerous driving, one for using violence to secure entry to a property, four months each for four breaches of a restraining order and two months for battery on his former girlfriend.
All sentences will be served concurrently. He had pleaded guilty to all counts.
The defendant, who looked towards his victim's family as he was taken down, will also be subject to a 12-month driving ban upon release from prison.
