Single mum battered ex-lover because he ‘wouldn’t let her see her son on her birthday’

A SINGLE mum battered her ex-lover after he allegedly wouldn’t let her see her son on her birthday.

Paris Beaumont dragged Andrew Kendall in the street like a “rag doll” after spotting him walking past her home, a court heard.

The 24-year-old slapped and kicked him after he dropped off their eight-year-old at primary school.

Beaumont stormed half-dressed out of her house in Wythenshawe, Manchester, and ran across the carriageway shouting: ”I want to see my kid – it’s my birthday!.”

Mr Kendall rang 999 saying: ”Something needs to happen because I’m going to lose my head with her. She’s not my ex she’s just my baby’s mum.

”She just started grabbing me – my face, my neck, my coat, everything. My kids are s**t scared. This is what she’s like she does it every single day she gives my fiance abuse when she goes to collect the kids from school, this keeps happening.”

Cops charged Beaumont with two separate assaults on Mr Kendall two weeks apart in October and November last year.

At Manchester Magistrates’ Court she was convicted of both charges of assault by beating.

During the trial Mr Kendall’s 999 call was played, in which Beaumont could be heard screaming in the background.

The pair are thought to have had their child – who was living with Mr Kendall amid an injunction over allegations of another assault – following a one night stand.


Denying wrongdoing over the school run assault Beaumont said: “I had been half-dressed making a brew when I saw Andrew and said ‘I want to see my son as it was my birthday’.

“But he said ‘definitely not after what happened the other week’ and said the police were looking for me.

”He said ‘I have f***ing had enough of this’ and I said ‘you’ve had enough? I’ve had enough! I just want to see my kid’ and then the police were on the phone.

“I said have got nothing to hide and I went back into the house crying thinking I want to see my kid.

”I was frustrated I was getting a bit angry I just wanted answers and saying ‘why are you making everything hard?’ I didn’t even touch his phone. I was frustrated because it is my son.

But prosecutor David Morgan: “Her conduct at the police station gives a much better impression of how she reacts when she doesn’t get what she wants. That is a true reflection of how she reacts when she doesn’t get what she wants.”

Finding Beaumont guilty JPs said: “Andrew Kendall was reliable and credible and whilst obviously nervous he was clear. We listened to the 999 call in which we could hear you screaming in the background.

Police described the behaviour in the police station, spitting, kicking doors, and screaming loudly.

“We did feel that you underplayed your behaviour and your perception of the events wasn’t supported by the evidence.”

Beaumont will be sentenced next month.
