A COWDENBEATH woman was assaulted by her son, who was unhappy about the temperature of a bath she had run for him.

The incident led to 21-year-old Grant Lawrie, of Hillview, Cowdenbeath, appearing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on February 20, he assaulted his mum, grabbed her arm, forced her arm onto her face, kicked her on the body, pushed her onto a couch and threw a phone which hit her on the head, to her injury.

Depute fiscal Dev Kapadia said: “His mum had run a bath for him and he was unhappy about the temperature.

Lawrie shouted, swore and became aggressive and said the house was a “s***-hole”.

After he was asked to leave, Lawrie grabbed his mum by her arm, pulling it and it struck her face.

A neighbour, hearing the commotion, phoned the police.

Lawrie then kicked his mother on the waist and she fell onto the couch. He then threw a mobile phone which struck her, causing a lump over her eye.

She told police he had been “pure raging” and was “foaming at the mouth”, added the depute.

The mum had been “screaming with fear” during the incident. She also called the police and when officers arrived, she was “hysterical”.

Defence solicitor Elaine Buist said her client was now back living at home.

Sheriff James Macdonald called for reports and deferred sentence until May 13.
