Offender attacked his ex-partner then reported himself to police after Larbert incident
Appearing at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Thursday, Stuart Todd (40) admitted assaulting his ex-partner, grabbing her throat and repeatedly striking her on the head to her injury, in George Street, Larbert on May 22.
Defence solicitor Stephen Biggam said it was Todd himself who called police to report the assault.
The court heard Todd had a previous domestic offence conviction, but it was some time ago.
Sheriff Simon Collins QC deferred sentence on Todd, of Barrhead, until August 5 for a Caledonian domestic abuse programme assessment.
