A WOMAN was attacked viciously by another female at a Cowdenbeath bar.

The victim took an epileptic fit and passed out after the violence.

The assailant, 26-year-old Sarah Louise Davidson, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

Davidson, of Kirkland Gardens, Ballingry, admitted that on June 14, 2019, at the Beath Inn, High Street, Cowdenbeath, she assaulted a woman by seizing her by the hair, pulling her to the ground and punching her repeatedly on the head, all to her injury.

Depute fiscal Freya Anderson-Ward said the woman had been at the bar with a friend and Davidson was also present with no contact taking place between them initially.

However, when the woman went across the road to a cash machine then returned to the pub she was met at the front door by Davidson.

The depute went on: “As she went to open the door, the accused came out and took hold of her by the hair, pulled her to the ground and punched her two or three times. Witnesses were able to separate the accused from the complainer.

“The complainer then had an epileptic fit and passed out. A friend of the woman stayed with her until she recovered then went home with her where the police were contacted.”

The victim had scratches and bruising under an eye.

Defence solicitor Aime Allan said there had been some “animosity” from her client towards the woman, as she thought she had made “unfounded allegations” about her.

Sheriff Alastair Brown imposed a 10-week restriction of liberty order.
