Man admits assault that caused ‘severe injury’

A THIRTY year old man has pleaded guilty to severely injuring another man by assaulting him at an address in Lerwick last year.

Darren Pollock, of Clana Road, Inverness, admitted at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Tuesday to assaulting the man at the town’s West Baila on 25 September. He punched him repeatedly on the head and face, struck him with an iPad and struck him with a lamp to his severe injury.

Although he is yet to hear a narration of events, Sheriff Philip Mann said that it was “on the face of it a serious offence” and, while he had no idea what kind of sentence he’d be looking at, custody was a possibility. 

Sheriff Mann deferred sentence until 18 July for a criminal justice social inquiry report to be prepared.
