A mother has shared horrific images of the head injuries she suffered after she was attacked in a pub toilet by a jealous girlfriend.
Anne-Marie Szwed had her head smashed on a sink five times by a woman in apparent revenge for attracting her boyfriend’s attention during a night out in Coventry.
The mother-of-one needed a gaping wound in her scalp held together by paramedics as she was taken to hospital.
The sickening assault happened after the attacker watched her boyfriend look at Ms Szwed as she walked to the toilet at The Oak Inn in the city centre.
The former confidence coach says she is so traumatised she fears leaving the house.
Ms Szwed shared images on her Facebook page of the blood splattered public bathroom and a close up of her head split open shortly after the attack.
She wrote: ‘To the girl who thinks this is ok, shame on you.
‘Just because your disgusting boyfriend watched me walk to the toilet I deserve to have my head smashed off the sink five times?
‘I don’t know you nor him, but this shows me what you’re made of and it disgusts me.’

Speaking today she said: ‘It’s been a really shocking and life altering time for me so I’m still trying to process it.
‘It took two medics to hold my head together to stop the blood whilst they gave anaesthetic and stitched me up.
‘Part of my previous job was to be a confidence coach, now I can’t leave the house. I can’t work and my mental health has suffered.’
Ms Szwed said around 20 police officers attended the scene along with an ambulance.
But she claims West Midlands Police have not contacted her since the incident and she has been having to chase them up for updates.
She said: ‘It’s very disappointing from the police as they were straight to site along with an ambulance.
‘It was mentioned this could be GBH or premeditated attempted murder but it doesn’t seem like it’s being taken seriously.
‘As far as I know, the police know who she is but she’s yet to be arrested and they haven’t contacted me since the night since either.’

‘Absolutely disgusting, sick and unwell behaviour. We all at sometime in our lives felt a tinge of jealousy, but to do this!’
Shelby Young wrote: ‘Girl obviously has trust issues and needs to get herself sorted.
