A MARCH dad, who locked his partner out of their house after claiming he came home to find their baby's nappy needed changing, has been ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.

Darius Sciglinskas had earlier admitted a charge of assault; the woman has suffered a scratch and some bruising.

During the incident at Grounds Avenue in March, the locked out woman had smashed a window to climb back into the property, Fenland magistrates were told.

The assault came to light six days after the incident, when police were called to another row between the couple, said solicitor David Chapple.

"She made some upsetting remarks about my client's parents; he did not want a confrontation in front of their child," explained Mr Chapple.

"He wanted to get the woman out of the house, which developed into some pushing and shoving."

Sciglinskas, 29, now of Southwell Road, Wisbech, was also ordered to pay £85 court costs.
