Bond for attack on lesbian lover

A WOMAN who beat up her lesbian lover in a fit of jealousy was placed on an 18-month good behaviour bond in Lismore Local Court on Monday.

The woman pleaded guilty to a charge of common assault.

On October 1 this year, the 30-year-old Goonellabah woman was sleeping on the lounge in the couple's home when her lover returned from visiting her sister about 7.15pm.

Her girlfriend knocked for an hour on the back door of the house until the woman woke and let her lover inside.

Once inside the woman started yelling abuse at her lover in a jealous rage, which escalated with the woman throwing things at her lover.

When she was told to 'shut up' the woman's anger erupted further with her pushing her lover over, lying on top of her and punching her about the arms and body.

The physical abuse continued until her lover's sister and brother-in-law entered the house and intervened.

Police were called to the scene and, after they arrived, the woman began yelling abuse at the officers.

She then set loose two German shepherd dogs from the backyard of the property, which prevented police from entering the house.

After the dogs were secured in the backyard, the woman was arrested by police and charged.
