Vomit attack man told to behave
Aberdeen Sheriff Court
Sentence on Russell was deferred for good behaviour
A man has admitted assaulting a woman by pouring a basin of vomit over her head in Aberdeen.

Father-of-three James Russell, 40, carried out the attack following an alcohol-fuelled argument at a house.

The victim was holding the basin when Russell took it from her and tipped its contents over her head, Aberdeen Sheriff Court was told.

Sheriff Kenneth Stewart deferred sentence on Russell for six months to allow him to be of good behaviour.

Senior fiscal depute Jim Craigen said: "Before this incident took place a fair amount of alcohol had been taken."

Russell claimed it was in the heat of the moment and that he regretted the incident, which took place on 27 May.

He will return to court on 2 March next year for sentence.
