Thug mums, 33 & 29, pelted victim with eggs & tried to pour vinegar in her eyes in vile attack sparked by online row | The Sun
TWO thug mums battered and poured vinegar in a woman's eyes during a "disgraceful" attack sparked by an online row, a court heard.
Vile pals Laura Jones, 33, and Emily Wright, 29, stormed into their victim's home during a horror 6.30am raid in 2020.
Wright hurled eggs at the victim before stamping on her legs as Jones kneed her in the head, pummelled her and tried to drench her face in vinegar.
At one point a picture frame was hurled across the room in Stoke-on-Trent during the frenzied July 24 attack.
The city's Crown Court heard Wright later returned to the address and grabbed the woman's hair, dragged her to the floor and spat in her face.
The attack took place as coronavirus was tearing through Britain.

Ms Powers told the court how the pair then "threatened to 'smash your house up'" before hurling the picture frame at the victim.
It is unclear what was said in the online row.
A victim impact statement heard how the previously "extroverted" victim who loved going out now "lives in constant fear" and has moved house.
Mr Brody, mitigating for Jones, said his client is heavily pregnant and that while she has accepted responsibility for the "immature response", she cannot go to prison.
Mr Watkins, representing Wright, said: "I have nothing further to add."
Judge Julian Taylor handed both women 12-month community orders and restraining orders after both pleaded guilty to affray.
Wright must complete a 20-day rehabilitation activity requirement and Jones 10 days of RAR.
