Thug admits campaign of domestic bullying
A MAN turned up at a party to demand his partner change clothes during a campaign of bullying, a court was told.
Dylan Scott, 25, grabbed Katie Pike, 21, and carried her over his shoulders at one point during their four-month relationship.
Fiscal depute Marie Irvine told Dundee Sheriff Court yesterday: ‘She found the accused very controlling. Due to concerns about his behaviour she agreed to leave [the party]. The accused ran up behind her, lifted her onto his shoulders and carried her back into the flat against her will.
‘He put her down and dragged her by the arms. He kicked her. She punched him on the face. He responded by punching her.’
Scott continued bombarding her with calls and followed her as she walked to a police station in Dundee. Passers-by intervened when he grabbed her around the neck to try to stop her from reporting him.
Solicitor Paul Parker- Smith, defending, said: ‘He is of the view that it is wrong to use violence against females.’
Scott has four previous convictions for domestic offences. He admitted engaging in a course of controlling and coercive behaviour against Ms Pike between 1 March and 13 July this year.
Sheriff Alastair Carmichael remanded Scott in custody and deferred sentence for reports.
