The trouble started when Leona Lyon (22) arrived at her ex partner’s house to collect clothes from the woman, and became annoyed at the fact there was another female in the premises.

Appearing at Falkirk Sheriff Court, Lyon had admitted threatening behaviour and the assault she committed in Wall Street, Camelon on September 19 last year.

She also pleaded guilty to breaching her bail conditions by contacting her former partner in Wall Street on October 25, 2020.

Lyon appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court yesterday after admitting an assault which left her aunt unconscious

Rachel Wallace, procurator fiscal depute, said: “It was 4.15pm and the witness was within her home address when the accused arrived outside the property, kicking at her front door.

“The accused was coming to collect clothes and was unhappy the witness had another female in the property. The accused started shouting at her from outside. A relation of the accused arrived and told her to calm down.

“She told her ‘you need to calm down or the police are going to be phoned’.”

Lyon swore at her aunt and asked her who she thought she was talking to.

“The accused then lunged at her,” said the procurator fiscal depute. “The woman attempted to avoid her by stepping back. However, she fell and hit her head on the ground.

“She was unconscious at this point, lying on the road.”

Police were contacted and Lyon later handed herself in at Falkirk Police Station.

Several months later Lyon breached her bail conditions not to contact her former partner.

The procurator fiscal depute said: “It was 1am and police attended at the woman’s home following reports there was a person breaching their bail conditions. Officers entered the address and found the accused attempting to hide within a bedroom cupboard.

Sheriff Christopher Shead warned Lyon, 21 Fairlie Street, Camelon, she was was on the “threshold of custody” because of her continued offending and non compliance with court orders.

Lyon was placed on a restriction of liberty order to stay in her home between 7pm and 7am for the next five months.
