A pub landlord has posted horrific domestic abuse footage through Facebook which shows him dragging his wife by her hair.
The callous North London man, known to be 42-year-old Tim Sheahan, showed no remorse for this terrible act of domestic violence, adding the chilling caption: ‘Wife sorted lol’.
The shocking series of events began to unfold at around 11.21 am on the 18th June at Sheahan’s pub,The Field Bar in Neasden. Prior to the assault, Sheahan had been drinking when he got into an altercation with one of his punters.
Footage shows Sheahan charging behind the bar after becoming embroiled in a brawl.
Sheahan then switches his anger to Jurgita Janusauskiene, his wife and a member of staff, grabbing her roughly by the hair as she clings helplessly to the beer pumps.
After violently pulling her around to the other side of the bar, Jurgita is left crouched on the floor, alone and visibly shaken.
You can watch the full disturbing footage below:
A spokesman from the Met Police has made the following statement:
Police are investigating an allegation of assault at licensed premises in Neasden Lane, on the morning of Sunday, 18 June.
A 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault and taken to a north London police station.
He was released under investigation pending further enquiries.
The incident is believed to be domestic-related.
The video has since been taken down from the bar’s Facebook page. However, the anger that these few grainy moments of footage have stirred up continue to reverberate.
This incident is made ever more prescient in the wake of the Queen’s speech, which sets out a draft bill establishing a domestic violence and abuse commissioner, whilst making sure that domestic abuse is defined in law. This bill will hopefully help to ensure the rights of those suffering from domestic abuse.
Around two million people across England and Wales suffer from domestic abuseeach year. To see such an assault being treated in a mocking manner by the perpetrator is nothing short of repulsive.
Our thoughts are with Jurgita Janusauskiene at this difficult time, as well as with the many other individuals across the world who are at this very moment experiencing violence at the hands of their partner.
