A WOMAN who was attacked in her Rosyth home by her partner took her young child and ran to a neighbour’s house for help.

The woman was grabbed by the hair, kicked and struck during the incident and was pushed against a wardrobe, banging her head.

The attacker was 36-year-old Piotr Boreczek, now of Main Street, Kelty.

After a trial at Dunfermline Sheriff Court, he was found guilty of a charge that on July 27, 2020 at Hudson Road, Rosyth, he assaulted Monika Duczkowska by pulling her by the hair and striking her repeatedly on the head and body and striking her head against a wardrobe, all to her injury.

Ms Duczkowska told the court her then partner had become angry during a row about hiring a nanny.

After managing to break free from the assault, she ran downstairs, picked up her young son and went to a neighbour’s home.

The neighbour, 68-year-old Evelyn Cowan, told the court Ms Duczkowska was “very upset, crying and had her wee boy in her arms”.

Boreczek did not give evidence at the trial.

Sheriff Charles Macnair called for reports and Boreczek will be sentenced on March 31.
