Christo­pher Wil­son, of Bruce Dewar Meuse, Dum­fries, pleaded guilty to the charge of as­sault to in­jury and rob­bery and made the sub­ject of a non­ha­rass­ment or­der for one year.

The court heard that Wil­son, 34, pushed the man onto a sofa, strug­gled with him and re­peat­edly punched him on the head be­fore tak­ing a mo­bile phone from him on July 1.

The court heard that Wil­son had com­mit­ted the of­fence while on bail which had been granted in April this year.

Sher­iff Colm Dempsey made Wil­son the sub­ject of the or­der which pre­vents him from con­tact­ing the man in any way for 12 months.
