A man was arrested on a charge of an assault after beating up his girlfriend because she chatted with other men on Facebook, police in the United Kingdom said.

Now, 22-year-old Stan Smith of Biggleswade, has been sentenced to serve three and a half years in jail after pleading guilty to assault.

According to the police investigation, Smith was in a short relationship with the woman. Their relationship came to an end, following incidents of violence by him towards her.

At the time the relationship ended, Smith was in prison, but when he was released, he met the woman at the home of friends.

At some point, Smith became angry after viewing the woman’s Facebook account, seeing that she chatted with other men while he was in prison.

He grabbed her by the hair and assaulted her. He placed his hands around her throat and began to strangle her. As she struggled to breathe, she heard him say “Goodbye.”

Smith then bit her on her hand, breaking the skin over her knuckle. Smith then pulled a knife from his pocket and held it at her chest.

The woman managed to run out of the house and hide.
