Vi­cious as­saults

The Galloway News - - INTIMATIONS -

An 18th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion came to an abrupt end in Dal­beat­tie when two sis­ters were as­saulted and left un­con­scious and a man was punched on the head.

And it led to the ap­pear­ance in court of 25-year-old Nathan Car­son on three charges of as­sault at the town’s High Street last Septem­ber.

Car­son, of Port Street, Dal­beat­tie, ad­mit­ted re­peat­edly punch­ing and kick­ing one of the sis­ters on the head and body ren­der­ing her un­con­scious.

While she was ly­ing on the ground he re­peat­edly punched her on the head and body to her per­ma­nent dis­fig­ure­ment.

Car­son also ad­mit­ted re­peat­edly punch­ing the other sister on the head and push­ing her on the body caus­ing her to fall onto the ground and strike her head ren­der­ing her un­con­scious too.

And he pleaded guilty to as­sault­ing the man by punch­ing him on the head.

The court was told that the birth­day party was held in the town hall and fol­low­ing that it was de­cided to re­turn to a house – but the key had been for­got­ten and at­tempts were made to climb in a win­dow.

Then a neigh­bour heard a dis­tur­bance and called the po­lice and they found the as­saults had taken place.
