A man who assaulted a woman has been jailed for 29 weeks. Scott John Henry, of Green Street in Saltcoats, appeared at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week and pled guilty to two charges.

His plea of not guilty to a third charge was accepted. On December 20 at an address in Saltcoats, 33, Henry slapped the woman on the head, knocked her glasses from her face, seized hold of her hair and pulled her to the ground, all to her injury.

On the same date at the same address, Henry behaved in a threatening or abusive manner towards the woman, shouted, swore at her, and uttered threatening remarks at her.
