A MODEL who had three glasses thrown at her – including one at her face – says she feels “sick” that her attacker has avoided jail.

Katrina Foster was attacked at a Newport pub last December by her ex-partner’s new girlfriend, Emma Davies, and hasn’t been able to work since.

Emma Davies, of Lord Street, in Newport, was given a suspended sentence at Cardiff Crown Court on Friday, August 11, after previously pleading guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm.

Miss Foster said that, as a result of the attack on December 4 at the Atlantica pub, she had “severe” cuts to her left temple, needing 48 stitches.

The mum-of-two also had to have an operation to remove glass from her skull.

The 32-year-old said: “I have had to see a neurologist because my long term memory is affected.

“My daughter still has nightmares, and I do too.

“I am looking over my shoulder all the time now, it has been a nightmare.”

Miss Foster, from the Ringland area of Newport, said she has been suffering from anxiety and depression since and has been referred to a psychiatrist.

She said she is now too scared to go to a public toilet and that, on occasions, she has wet herself because of this fear.

“I have not been able to work since the attack – my work is modelling,” Miss Foster continued. “I loved modelling, I really miss doing it. I am hoping I will be able to do it again one day.”

Miss Foster said it was an “absolute joke” that Davies received a 12 month sentence suspended for 12 months.

“I feel sick to be honest, it is not justifiable,” she said. “I was hoping she would go to prison and have her life affected like I have.

“She has attacked me a couple of times before and I worry she is going to do something.

“She will not leave me alone - she is jealous because my ex-partner still wants me.

“I want an apology from her, she is not remorseful at all.”

Davies received a 12 month sentence suspended for 12 months with an unpaid community work commitment of 180 hours and a 10-day rehabilitation activity requirement.

A restraining order was placed on Davies, banned her from contacting Miss Foster directly, indirectly or via a third party for a period of five years.

She has been ordered to pay compensation of £750 as well as £250 towards costs and victim surcharge of £140, totalling £1,140.
