Woman punched councillor
Warrant issued in fraud case
THE former leader of Aberdeen City Council has welcomed the end of an investigation into an assault on him.
As reported in later editions of yesterday’s Evening Express, Sally Farrer, pictured, punched councillor John Stewart on the head twice at the city’s Kirkgate bar.
The 37-year-old admitted the attack at Aberdeen Justice of the Peace Court and was fined £160 and banned from the pub for three months. Cllr Stewart said he was pleased the matter was over.
Farrer, whose address was given in court papers as 4 Bob Cooney Court, Aberdeen, attacked Cllr Stewart on March 3. POLICE were today hunting a man who allegedly tried to fraudulently buy cars.
David Charleson is alleged to have tried to buy a grey Audi A4 and a blue Citroen C15 fraudulently.
On October 16 at Selbie Drive, Inverurie, it is alleged he gave Colin Morrison a cheque for the Audi. It was alleged Charleson reported the cheque as being stolen.
On September 5, at Sclattie Crescent, Bucksburn, he is alleged to have pretended to Leslie Alexander he had enough finance to buy the Citroen, before Mr Alexander released ownership of the car.
Charleson, who was listed as having an unknown address, failed to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
