A PREGNANT teenager who launched a ‘shocking’ attack on a woman in a busy McDonalds restaurant has been warned she faces giving birth in jail.

Natalie Marie Harvey, 19, who is now 29 weeks pregnant, pulled Ann-Marie Gornall to the floor and kicked her repeatedly, in the afternoon incident, eight months ago.

She told her victim: “You’re going to get stabbed up”, and “Why have you got me done? You are going to get me sent down for this”, after Ms Gornall had reported her for a previous assault.

Burnley Crown Court heard how one horrified diner shouted to Harvey: “This is a public place.” He told police the assault was completely unprovoked, malicious, and shocking.

Staff and customers went to assist Ms Gornall, who did not suffer any visible injuries. Harvey made no comment when questioned by police.

Harvey was last November given a supervision order by magistrates for the earlier battery offence and resisting a police officer. It was imposed four days after she was given an interim anti-social behaviour order, which banned her from a large part of Burnley town centre after a catalogue of abuse against shoppers and workers.

She appeared for sentence over the McDonalds incident after earlier admitting witness intimidation.

Harvey, who was previously living in Burnley, has recently moved to Preston to start a new life with her partner Wayne Kinvig, a serial conman. He has been jailed for charity scams after getting cash out of unsuspecting victims by claiming he was collecting for a sick little brother.

Harvey’s barrister told the court she didn’t want to have her baby in Styal Prison, but Judge Simon Newell told Harvey all sentencing options were open. He warned her: “You may still have your baby in Styal.”

Harvey was bailed until June 6 for psychological profiling. She has 26 offences on her record.
