A DOMESTIC abuser grabbed a woman by the throat and was found with a knife in a park.

Michael Wallis attacked the woman at George Williams Mews, Portslade.

He was later found with the knife in Victoria Park, Brighton Magistrates’ Court heard.

The 31-year-old changed his plea to admit assault and possession of an offensive weapon in public.

It was the second time he was found in possession of a blade in public.

Magistrate Rosalind Buchan jailed Wallis for six months.

The court noted it was an “assault in a domestic setting” which “included a grab to the victim’s throat”.

Wallis, of Somerhill Avenue, Hove, was ordered to pay £100 in compensation to the victim, who The Argus is choosing not to name.

He must also pay £85 court costs.
