Jonathan Wettreich, deputy chief crown prosecutor for CPS Yorkshire and Humberside, said: "Wenbo perpetrated a sustained and deliberate assault on the female victim, late at night, leaving her in great distress.
"We will always pursue domestic abuse cases where our legal tests are met; this type of behaviour will not be tolerated, and the CPS treats such cases with the utmost seriousness.
"He has pleaded guilty and been fined £1,380 and given a community order.
WPBSA chairman Jason Ferguson said: “We were extremely disappointed to learn of this today, and it is obviously a very serious charge to which Liang Wenbo has pleaded guilty.
“It only came to our attention today; we have seen the sentence of the court.
“We need to now consider whether he has in addition fallen foul of our disciplinary process in the area of disrepute.”
