Lady, 52, ‘punched a bride-to-be and her sister-in-law as their hen get together night time out

A woman punched a bride-to-be before attacking her sister-in-law at a hen party night out that descended into a city centre brawl, a court heard. 

Brigitta Pasztor and sister-in-law Katalin claim Ngozi Godwell, 52, launched an unprovoked attack on them as they were hailing a cab following a night out.

Godwell claims she was the victim of a ‘racist’ attack from the wedding revellers. 

Pasztor told a jury at Oxford Crown Court that they tried to walk away and get a taxi from elsewhere – but Godwell began swinging punches, striking them both.

The pair escaped the alleged attack after an unidentified man intervened and flagged down a passing police van.

Brigitta, wearing a crown and a veil, had been celebrating her hen party at Thirst bar in Oxford at 3.30am on April 13.

She told Oxford Crown Court: ‘She hit me in my forehead. She was following and just shouting.

‘She was approaching [my sister-in-law]and said ‘you don’t know who I am. I am going to find you and I am going to slap you’.

‘[It was in a] really aggressive way, loud.’

Godwell, of no fixed abode, denies two counts of assault by beating and one of breaching a previously imposed criminal behaviour order.

The court went on to see bodycam footage of Godwell’s arrest just moments after the alleged incident and heard from PC Laura Goodban who was with her at the time.

PC Goodban told the court that Godwell had said ‘you are all racist. Those white girls have not been arrested. They kicked me’.

The trial, which is expected to last two days, continues.
