A woman who acted as if she was "possessed" used her teeth as a weapon when she bit her ex-partner's mum's breast as part of a horrifying attack.
Lanie-Amelia Schofield, now of Heanor Walk in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, struck when her victim went to the site of the attack after the assailant threw her ex's belongings into the street.
Nottingham Magistrates’ Court heard the victim was concerned about Schofield, who had been drinking and is diabetic, when she found her crying with her back against the tree before the horror attack began.

Prosecuting, Annelli Pritchard said Schofield launched the attack after her victim attempted to help her on Chatsworth Street, Sutton, around 11:30pm on April 13 of this year.
Ms Pritchard told the court the defendant tried to punch the victim's face three or four times before sinking her teeth into the top of the victim's left breast when she tried to restrain her.
In a statement, the victim said: "I felt like my skin was being ripped off me."
She also said she felt a "burning, throbbing sensation" and heard a sound "like gristle being torn".
The woman turned Schofield to the side, and, as they fell to the floor, she felt a "ripping sensation", the court heard.
"I have never seen her like this," Schofield’s victim said.
"I tried to reason with her. I remember thinking it was like she was possessed."
Ms Pritchard added: "It’s a really unpleasant use of teeth as a weapon. It must have been a horrifying incident."
The victim said in her statement that she was left with scars from the bitemark which had a "huge impact on her mental health and confidence."
Schofield, who now lives in Mansfield, admitted assault.
But Donna Pursglove, mitigating, said: "That behaviour is nothing like the young lady who sits before you today."
She added that Schofield was "horrified by what happened that evening" and that the defendant was extremely drunk throughout the incident and "her recollections aren't very clear".
Schofield, who has no previous convictions, was described by Ms Pursglove as "quite timid" and "highly remorseful", and added that she has autistic traits and a diagnosis of a personality disorder.
The victim, who was ordered to pay £500 in compensation and handed a 24-month restraining order, works full-time as an administrator and is five months pregnant.
She has since sought private therapy and counselling.
