Stewart attacked the woman at an address in Bowhouse Road, Grangemouth

Sentence had been deferred on Stewart for the purposes of obtaining a criminal justice social work report, but, unfortunately one was not available.

The court heard this was through no fault on Stewart’s part – it had just been “a bit of an oversight”.

Sheriff Eric Brown deferred sentence on Stewart, Struan, 40 Cannop Crescent, Stoneyburn, until October 7 for the criminal justice social work report and a restriction of liberty order assessment.
