The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

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.
