A MAN had to be tested for HIV after he was bitten by a woman he called a “druggie prostitute” following a row over her out-of-control dogs.

Christopher Weston faced an agonising two-and-a-half month wait for results of medical tests after he was attacked and bitten by his neighbour Nazreen Carter.

Carter, aged 31, of Brookthorpe Close, Warndon, Worcester, also punched the man’s mum, Diane Weston. Carter wept in Worcester Magistrates Court when she admitted two assaults, breach of bail and breach of a conditional discharge.

Matt Dodson, prosecuting, said Carter’s dogs ran on to the Weston’s property on the day of the attack. Christopher Weston said, “get those dogs away from my house or I will kill them,” to which Carter replied, “what’s it got to do with you?” Carter, who has 36 previous convictions, punched Diane Weston in the head, then lunged at her son who received three 1cm cuts under his right eye.

Mr Dodson said: “She again lunged for him, he restrained her and she bent down and bit him to the forearm. A paramedic disclosed he believed she had hepatitis C and there may have been a possible transfer of bodily fluids. He had to attend Worcestershire Royal Hospital and began a course of antiviral injections.” He was tested for HIV and hepatitis C, the results of which came back negative.

Susie Duncan, defending, said: “Carter was called a druggie and a prostitute and that got her very upset. She has been a drug user for many years but that’s very much under control and she has been providing negative samples.” Carter denied she was a prostitute and she had never had hepatitis C. She received minor injuries during the incident, had the mental age of a teenager, had bi-polar schizophrenia and a personality disorder.

She was given a 15-week prison sentence, suspended for two years and placed under supervision for 12 months. She had to pay £100 compensation to Diane Weston, £250 to Christopher Weston and £50 costs. Carter was also banned from going on their land.
