Magistrates said the defendant trespassed into the couple's living room and the attack on the husband was sustained.

Portsmouth magistrates imposed a six-week jail term suspended for a year with 15 days of rehabilitation activities.

A restraining order bans him from contacting the pair for a year.

He must pay £264 compensation for the damage.
