A WOMAN was violently attacked by her partner in abuse that went on for well over a year.

The culprit was 46-year-old Steven Dick who bashed her head against a wall in one of the incidents, causing a bad cut.

Dick, of Union Street, Lochgelly, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for sentencing.

He admitted that between April 1, 2021 and August 19, 2022, at an address in Cowdenbeath, he engaged in an abusive course of behaviour towards his partner by making derogatory remarks, kicking her, throwing a shoe at her which struck her on the head, shouted and swore, seized her by the hair and repeatedly struck her head against a wall, all to her injury.

Depute fiscal Laura McManus said in April 2021 there was an argument between the couple and Dick kicked his partner on the leg, causing bruising.

In November that year, during another row, he threw a trainer which hit his partner on the head, again causing bruising.

Then in August 2022, there was another argument which led to Dick grabbing the woman by the hair and banging her head against a wall, causing a significant cut.

Dick left and went to another house covered in blood and said he had “bashed her head off a wall” added the depute.

The court heard he has previous convictions for similar crimes.

Sheriff Craig McSherry imposed a community payback order with 12 months of supervision and participation in the Caledonian Programme for domestic offenders.

He also put Dick on a restriction of liberty order for five months and imposed a two-year non-harassment order.
