A SAUCHIE man pleaded guilty to kicking another male on the head six times before stamping on him in a vicious assault.

Perry Fyfe admitted the attack when he appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court last Thursday.

The 24-year-old punched the complainer on the head, tripped him, repeatedly kicked him on the head and body, before seizing him by the clothing, throwing him to the ground and stamping on him.

Lindsay Brooks, depute fiscal, told Alloa Sheriff Court that at around 7.30pm a member of staff at Hallpark homeless accommodation in Sauchie observed Perry kicking a male "multiple times" on CCTV.

The victim was then observed getting up and running towards the accommodation and ran straight past the member of staff and into his room with blood coming from his mouth.

Ms Brooks went on to describe the complainer as a "hostile witness" and although officers attended, he refused to cooperate, but were able to identify the accused by the CCTV footage.

The footage showed Fyfe punching the man on the face, kicking him six times on the head before landing another blow on his body as he tried to get up before stamping on him.

According to the prosecutor, Fyfe told police: "He shouldn't go about battering bairns."

Before hearing mitigation from Kelly Howe, defending, Sheriff David Mackie said background reports will be required and bailed Fyfe, of Quarry Place, Sauchie, until July 11.
