An 18-year-old man who assaulted his former partner four times in one day was last week told by a judge he had a serious problem managing his anger.
Khan Andre Riddle, a shop assistant, appeared in the Gore District Court before Judge Christopher Somerville on four charges of assaulting a female on May 1.
He was sentenced to six months community detention and 12 months intensive supervision.
Judge Somerville said he had a serious problem managing his anger.
"What you did on this one night demonstrates you can get enraged and do things you can't control."
He had attacked the girl's neck twice and this was "really serious violence".
Riddle's lawyer, Paul Gray, said the offending had cost Riddle his relationship, which he regretted, and he wished he could turn back the clock.
He was a regular user of synthetic drug K2 at the time, which may have contributed towards his offending, he said.
The female suffered no physical injuries, he said.
