A KINCARDINE man who carried out an unprovoked attack in the street has been ordered to pay his victim compensation.

John Urbaniak, 54, of Mercer Street, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court last week.

He previously admitted the assault, which took place on July 10, 2018, at Kirk Street, Kincardine.

Depute fiscal Alistair McDermid said the victim was walking to a local pub to watch a football match when Urbaniak attacked him.

He followed the man down the street and confronted him which led to an altercation.

The victim sustained a 3cm cut near an eye and a chipped tooth.

Defence solicitor Elaine Buist said her client had been drinking too much whisky at the time, having been made redundant from his job at Longannet Power Station.

Urbaniak also admitted that on September 10 he breached his bail condition not to approach or contact the victim and in Kirk Street, Kincardine, shouted and swore at him.

Sheriff Craig McSherry imposed a community payback order with 120 hours of unpaid work.

He also ordered Urbaniak to pay his victim £450 compensation.
