A MARCH woman was hit over the head with a bottle and then pulled into her flat by her hair during a sustained attack in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Samantha Thompson had arrived home to find 18-year-old Carrie StClair at her High Street flat.
StClair hit Ms Thompson twice over the head with an empty bottle, and then dragged her up 20 steps.
