Man attacked by husband over ‘affair’
A LITHUANIAN delivery driver attacked a man with pepper spray and a table leg because he thought his wife was having an affair with him, a court was told.
Anton Borisov, aged 31, broke into Vytautas Saulenas’ home in Long Ashton using a metal crowbar before squirting pepper spray in his face and beating him with a table leg.
Borisov was given a 10-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, by magistrates at North Somerset Courthouse on June 19.
The court was told the Lithuanian had gone to Mr Saulenas’ house because he was convinced his wife had been having an affair with him after checking the home computer’s history.
Mike Hartnell, prosecuting, said Borisov knocked down the door in Westward Gardens with a crowbar after there was no answer. He then searched through paperwork until Mr Saulenas returned home and confronted him.
The pair grappled before Borisov used the pepper spray and a table leg to hit Mr Saulenas.
Owen Strickland, defending, said Borisov and his wife, who is also a delivery driver, had come to Britain six years ago.

Mr Strickland said: “Borisov thought his wife was having an affair with the gentlemen involved. In the spur of the moment he went over there.
“He is very, very sorry for this. He and his wife are now back together again and in fact were back together the very next day.
“It was out-of-character and he is sorry but it was a serious incident.”
Borisov, of Phipps Street, Bristol, admitted charges of using violence to break into Mr Saulenas’ house and using the pepper spray as a weapon.
He was ordered to carry out 40 hours unpaid work over the next 12 months, to pay �100 compensation to Mr Saulenas and �85 costs, in addition to his suspended sentence.
