A Ste­wart­field man was placed on a su­per­vi­sion or­der af­ter ad­mit­ting charges of do­mes­tic abuse.

Marc Keenan will be on the or­der for two years af­ter he ad­mit­ted charges re­lat­ing to two ex-part­ners.

Keenan, of Swaledale, was also or­dered to do 160 hours of un­paid work and was served with a non-ha­rass­ment or­der in re­spect of one of the women.

The 33-year-old ap­peared at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court last week and ad­mit­ted as­sault­ing a woman at a flat in Glas­gow’s Har­bour Ter­race on May 18.

The court heard how he grabbed the woman by the hair, shoved her on to a bed, pinned her down and struck her re­peat­edly on the head with his hand. Keenan also ad­mit­ted threat­en­ing or abu­sive be­hav­iour to­wards an­other woman at sev­eral ad­dresses – in­clud­ing Drum­mond Way, New­ton Mearns –on var­i­ous oc­ca­sions be­tween May 2011 and Oc­to­ber 2013.

The charge stated he shouted abuse and threats, grabbed his vic­tim’s phone and looked at it with­out per­mis­sion.

He also punched and kicked walls, and dam­aged elec­tri­cal and house­hold items by throw­ing them about.

Sher­iff Dou­glas Brown told Keenan he must at­tend a pro­gramme for do­mes­tic abuse of­fend­ers as part of his com­mu­nity pay­back or­der.

Sher­iff Brown also im­posed a non­ha­rass­ment or­der ban­ning him from any con­tact with his first vic­tim for three years.
