A MAN who rubbed broken eggs into the face of a woman in a Lochgelly house has been ordered to undergo six months' supervision on the Caledonian Men's Programme.

Lee Taylor, 32, admitted, at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court, assaulting the woman at a house in Francis Street on January 9 and 14, and also admitted breaching a bail condition by contacting the complainer after he was charged, by exchanging text messages and telephone calls with her.

The Court heard that the woman had needed something to eat after taking insulin but Taylor broke eggs and then smeared them over her face in the Francis Street house.

He also punched the woman while she was sitting on the toilet and dragged her across the floor. A few days later he seized the woman by the throat.

When interviewed by police Taylor said there had been a physical confrontation but added that he had also been a victim.

Taylor was sentenced to six months supervision with a requirement that he attend the Caledonian Men's Programme, which is a course helping men to change their ways after being convicted of domestic abuse.
