TWENTY-three-year-old Bryony Wolstenholme showed no remorse after she attacked a woman in the street - she simply carried on walking with friends and went to the pub.
On Wednesday Fenland magistrates watched a video of the assault. They saw Wolstenholme punch Zoe Hubbard several times as she cowered on the pavement.
Wolstenholme, who was with two other people, also kicked her victim, before being involved in a scuffle as she was pulled off by a friend.
According to prosecutor Craig McDougall, Ms Hubbard did not know Wolstenholme. But, he said, in the past she had been the girlfriend of Wolstenholme's current boyfriend, a relationship that ended more than a year ago.
Both Wolstenholme and Ms Hubbard had been in the George pub at Chatteris before the incident at about 11pm on July 14, said Mr McDougall. Ms Hubbard left on her own, and as she walked home she heard a voice shouting her name, and discovered Wolstenholme had been stalking her.
Ms Hubbard speeded up but was pulled to the ground and attacked. "She was left sitting on the floor crying. She was extremely upset," he said.
"The three young ladies then went on to the pub; no remorse was shown whatsoever."
Ms Hubbard suffered various injuries including bruises to her forehead, eye and cheek. She was bruised on her arm and back, and had a bump on the back of her head.
Wolstenholme, of Dagless Way, March, admitted assault and was given conditional bail until August 16, when the court will consider a report.
