NASSAU-A man struck his wife after she hit him in the face with her bloodied sanitary pad, a court heard.
His angry wife threw the soiled pad after she confronted him about another woman who had recently moved into their neighborhood.
But police charged the husband with assault after his wife filed a complaint.
The man’s name has been withheld to protect his privacy.
He pleaded guilty to the assault charge when he appeared before a magistrate today.
He told the court, “I love her. I’m going to make it up to her.”
The magistrate asked him why he hit his wife.
The man replied, “She hit me in the face with a pad.”
The astonished magistrate asked, “With blood on it?”
The man said, “Yes.”
The magistrate asked the wife what possessed her to use the soiled pad as a weapon.
She explained, “A Haitian woman just moved in our area and he told me to be careful of her.
“But 10 minutes later I saw them talking.”
The man maintained that the conversation was innocent.
He said, “I didn’t do anything wrong. I’m going to make it up to her; I love her.”
Although the husband admitted the charge, the magistrate did not record a conviction.
