Molly Russell, spared jail yet again for violently attacking a man and scaring him for life.

A violent regular pub-goer who rammed a glass into a man’s eye was spared jail and told to ‘grow up’ by a judge.

Molly Russell, 22, began smashing glasses at The Albany pub in London’s West End after staff told her it was closing time on September 23 last year.

When customer Brendon Taylor tried to calm her down, she started to assault him with the empty glass, leaving him ‘drenched in his own blood’, Southwark crown court heard yesterday.

In a statement, Mr Taylor, who was left badly scarred, said: ‘It has been very difficult to move forward from this ordeal as I’m reminded every time I look in the mirror.’

Russell, who made headlines in 2016 for ‘donkey-kicking’ a police officer, sobbed in the dock. Handing her a 20-month sentence suspended for two years, Judge Michael Gledhill QC said: ‘When are you ever going to learn?

‘You are a thoroughly unpleasant and violent young woman. It’s about time you grew up.’

Russell, of Camden, north-west London, admitted unlawful wounding. She must do 118 hours of unpaid work.
