Assaulted his fiancée

A MAN from Lerwick will learn his fate later this month after he admitted assaulting his partner a day after getting engaged to her at Christmas.

Marcin Olejniczak, of Hill Grind, pled guilty at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Thursday to seizing his partner on her body at his address and punching her to her injury on 26 December.

On the same day, the 38 year old assaulted another woman at the same address by pushing her on the body, causing her to strike her head against a doorframe and fall to the floor, and striking her with his hand to her injury.

Defence agent Tommy Allan said Olejniczak’s partner, who became his fiancée on Christmas Day, stood by him despite the assaults.

He added that his client had a background of alcohol problems, but progress had been made with his drinking.

Sheriff James Scott deferred sentence until 18 January for a social work inquiry report to be prepared.
