Ok, so to be fair it is quite late, just thought that some of the night worker bods might be about... going to say it anway...

We've spend a really lovely day with friends and their gorgeous little girl. Came home about 2.00am , and unusally for me, I was wide awake while boyf, was v tired. So got into bed think I'd probably fall asleep any minute.

till I was completely awoken by the sound of a woman having seven shades of sh*t beaten out of her by 'Damien'. whether she hadn't done anything, as she repeatedly screamed at him, or not, I don't think it's ever right for a man to use physical violence like that. I looked out the window and saw him thump her *so* hard across the back.

So I called 999.

I really hope I did the right thing. the police came while I was still on the phone explaining the location which was damn impressive, but I just hope that it has done some good and not made things worse for her. I'm worried I stuck my nose in and.... oh god. Certainly no nearer sleep than I was, now I'm wide awake. She really sounded like she meant it when she screamed for someone to help her and there wasn't a lot else that I could do.

Hey Scamper - You did right. One of my pet peeves is a guy hitting a female or child. Did your boyf sleep through this? Have a good evening.

No, he was woken by it too. i think most of the neighbourhood must have been.

Hi Scampermouse,
I've done the same thing before. Woke up to hear some girl screaming and the guy yelling "I'm gonna f**king kill you".
Called the police and to be fair they did come very quickly as you say. Of course as soon as they got there he was all apologetic. I think you did the right thing. Massive amounts of domestic violence is under-reported and apparantly 1 in 4 women will experience it at some point in her life. On average a woman will experience this kind of violence 35 times before she goes to the police. It's her choice, but at least you may have given her a choice x
(Can you tell I have a ciminology exam next week?!)
