A Corby woman has been spared from prison after an attack which left her victim needing a trip to the town's urgent care centre.

Siobhan Brown, 24, was found guilty of assault occasioning actual bodily harm having denied the crime after the incident on February 3 last year.

Police said she had an argument at a house with the victim, who was known to her, and grabbed her hair before pulling her to the ground and smashing her head against the floor.

It left her victim with a gash to her head and she went to the urgent care centre to be seen by medical staff, police said.

Three days later, on February 6, she was involved in another incident with a woman in her 60s who was also known to her.

Brown, of Alberta Close, was in Tesco in Butland Road when she pushed her multiple times, leaving her with minor back pain.

She later denied assault by beating but was also found guilty of that offence by magistrates in Northampton.

Last month Brown was sentenced to 26 weeks in prison, suspended for 18 months, and was told she must take part in rehabilitation activities and carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.

She must also pay her victims compensation totalling £550 as well as prosecution costs of £300 and a surcharge to fund victim services of £122

A restraining order was made banning her from contacting her victims or visiting two named streets in Corby.
