A Sauchie man, who violently attacked his pregnant partner, has appeared back in court.

In the dock at Alloa Sheriff Court was 23-year-old Jack Logan, of Kippen Place, who admitted breaching his community payback order. In May, he was put on the order as well as being given a backdated jail sentence.

He had admitted that on January 29 last year at his home he assaulted his partner, who was then pregnant, seized her by the hair, dragged her by the hair, pulled her from the bed causing her to strike her head, covered her with a duvet and prevented her from summoning assistance, all to her injury.

Depute fiscal Rachel Wallace previously said of the assault: “There had been an argument between them. He became aggressive and grabbed her by the hair. He dragged her around the bed and she banged her head.

“He then put the duvet over her. She was screaming and he eventually got off her. She had a cut to her face and a lump on the side of her head.”

He also admitted that on March 25 this year, he breached bail conditions by contacting his partner.

In May, Logan was put on a community payback order with 180 hours of unpaid work, 30 months of supervision and participation in the Caledonian Programme for domestic offenders.

With the order breached, Sheriff Neil Bowie called for reports and Logan will be sentenced on December 7.
