Man, 32, in threat to cut partner’s throat
An Aberdeen man who threatened to strike his partner with a hammer and “slit her throat” has been jailed for two years.
Harry Morrison, 32, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court yesterday after his arrest for attacking Kerry Anne Wilson.
Police were called to their Grandholm Court address on August 21.
Morrison admitted assaulting Ms Wilson by “repeatedly seizing her by the body, pushing her on the body and causing her to fall to the ground, seizing her by the hair and repeatedly kicking her on the body”.
He also pleaded guilty to covering her mouth with one hand and “restricting her breathing”.
The court heard Morrison threatened to slit the woman’s throat and hit her with a hammer if she tried to leave during the ordeal.
Defence agent Ian Woodward-Nutt said Morrison had a drinking problem and had consumed an “excessive amount” that night.
He added: “My client regrets and is ashamed of his conduct.”
Sheriff William Summers told the court that Morrison had similar offences on his record as he jailed him for 24 months.
