A man who attacked his partner and her two-year-old daughter has been jailed.

Brett Wooding, 33, pushed, punched and bit the victim at her home on 2 February because she wouldn't give him any money to go out.

He became frustrated and grabbed her face as her two-year-old daughter watched on crying. He then grabbed the child by her arms and threw her out of the way.

The victim tried to call police, but Wooding snatched the phone. He then punched her in the face, bit her and put his hands around her neck.

An upstairs neighbour came to help when they heard the victim scream and police were called.
