Woman laughed "like a schoolgirl" after arrest for kicking and biting two women
AN 18-YEAR-OLD woman attacked two other women in a Swansea nightclub in a horrifying attack.
Melinda Imge Evans kicked Sarah Fulcher in the face when the pair were in Oceana in Swansea.
She laughed "like a schoolgirl" when she was arrested following the brutal attack, Swansea Magistrates' Court heard.
Evans, who was standing on a lower level than her victim, then kicked her a second time before grabbing her by the ankles and pulling her to the floor.

A group of women then set about her, before Evans, of Briars Court, Blaenymaes, punched and bit Miss Fulcher.
During the attack, she also hurt Rachel Halfpenny, Miss Fulcher's friend.
Miss Halfpenny had lost track of her friends but caught sight of them at around 1am, the court heard. As she walked towards them, she saw five females attacking her friend and went to help. She watched as Evans jumped on her and said she looked like "an animal".
Evans then pushed Miss Halfpenny to the floor, laid on top of her and repeatedly tried to bite her.
In her statement Miss Halfpenny said she could feel Evans bite her lip and she "continued to lunge" at her and kept trying to bite her.
Prosecutor Andrew Smith said: "She was petrified she was going to take a chunk out of her lip."
Miss Halfpenny said that as Evans was pulled off her, her teeth were still embedded in her arm.
Police were called and described both victims as hysterical. The officer said both had visible injuries.
The court was told Evans had been drinking all day.
Rachel Eli-Melech, representing Evans, who admitted two counts of assault, said: "She realises she has a problem with her behaviour after she has consumed alcohol."
Magistrates imposed a four month sentence, suspended for 18 months. She was also ordered to complete an intensive alcohol awareness programme and given a four month curfew.
