A former policeman forced his way into a woman’s flat before punching her son and then stamping on his head as he was on the floor, a court has been told.
Laura Cummings told a hearing at Birmingham Crown Court there was so much blood coming from her son Robert’s head from the alleged attack she thought he was dead.
Former police officer Robin Mullett, aged 40, of Highting Close in Stourport, is accused of wounding with intent and assault by beating.
His sister Nicola, 47, of Brockmoor, Brierley Hill, is accused of assault by beating following the alleged incident on December 22.
The jury heard that the pair had gone to Mrs Cumming’s home in Church Road in Rowley Regis to confront her over noise disturbance. Both deny the charges put against them.
Giving evidence at the third day of trial yesterday, Mrs Cummings said on the morning of December 22 Robin, who formerly served the Wolverhampton area with West Midlands Police, and Nicola Mullett called at the house
She said: “He (Robin) took a step back and just charged through the door.
“Robert came running down the stairs, he (Robin) started punching Robert in the face. Next thing I remember was Robert falling or tumbling down the stairs.”
The trial continues.
