London man used watch as knuckle duster in assault on woman in Northampton
Martin McDonagh was arrested last night and pleaded guilty to ABH this morning
A London man used his watch as a knuckle duster to beat a woman in town centre yesterday morning (June 23).
Martin McDonagh, of Sutherland Road, Walthamstow, was arrested last night following reports of an incident of domestic violence in Abington Street.
The 20-year-old carried out a sustained assault on a woman while reportedly using his watch over his knuckles as a weapon.
When police arrived on the scene near Horsemarket at 2am on June 23, McDonagh reportedly attempted to then sprint at the victim before he was restrained.
At Northampton Magistrates' Court this morning (June 24), McDonagh pleaded guilty to assault by ABH.
The bench remanded him into custody ahead of a sentencing hearing on July 23 at Northampton Crown Court.
