Facebook row assault

A ROW over a Facebook account ended in a Clowne father of two assaulting his estranged wife.

Nicola Cross was visiting Sam Cross on 29th June when an argument blew up, Chesterfield magistrates heard.

“It seems that he wanted her to add him as a friend and she didn’t want to. The argument escalated and he grabbed her upper arm and pushed her into the hallway and then onto a bed,” said Laura Dyke, prosecuting.

Cross, 29, of Southwood Drive told police he didn’t trust her to post only suitable images and he grabbed her phone to see her Facebook profile. He said he held her wrist for a couple of seconds and let go.

Cross admitted assault. Sentence was adjourned for probation service reports.
