A police spokeswoman said: ‘The court heard how at approximately 7pm, the victims were approached by Lale and another woman and an altercation began.

‘Lale then assaulted the two victims with a smashed glass, causing both of them injuries to their faces.

‘The court heard how Lale smashed a glass drinking jar over the 33-year-old woman's head before punching the 29-year-old man in the face with broken glass in her hand.

‘Both were taken to hospital for treatment and have since recovered from their injuries.’
