A thug broke down in tears as he was jailed for punching a woman. The horrific attack left her with a broken jaw and scarred for life – after he had been thrown out of a Northern Quarter bar.
Zikel Bobmanuel, 27, begged for mercy, telling the court about his budding music career and how he had spent £500 of his own money making a documentary about helping Manchester’s homeless.
The judge blasted his unprovoked attack on an ‘innocent’ young mum and jailed him for 22 months.
Bobmanuel became involved in a bust-up outside Walrus bar at 1am after he had been thrown out of the Northern Quarter nightspot in July last year the trial heard.
CCTV shown in court saw how it took several people to restrain him outside the venue.
He is said to have flown into a rage when he saw his victim, who he knew from school, and who had also been inside the bar, pointing at him.
The father punched the woman in the face, knocking her to the floor and causing bleeding from her mouth and it took multiple people and bouncers to pull him away from her.
