A jealous ex-boyfriend who poured boiling water over his former lover when he found her in bed with another man has been spared jail.
Maciej Kaczmarek, of Bath House, Barking, called police claiming he was “going to kill somebody” after finding ex-girlfriend Sandra Falenzyk asleep in bed with another man at their home.
Ms Falenzyk and the man were woken by Kaczmarek pouring boiling water over them, scorching her upper arm and leg.
The 26-year-old pleaded guilty to the charge of assault by beating at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court last Thursday.
He was handed a 12-month community service order and told to pay a total of £245 in costs and compensation.

“The pair woke up with the defendant pouring boiling water over them as they lay in bed.”
The assault took place at an address in Ilford on May 8.
The male victim did not press charges against Kaczmarek, who had split from his ex-girlfriend some months earlier although the pair were still living together.
Kaczmarek was given full credit for pleading guilty on the first occasion and told to pay £85 court costs, £100 compensation to the victim and a £60 victim surcharge.
