A 22-year-old man has had sentence deferred for a psychiatric report at Jedburgh Sheriff Court after admitting assaulting his partner to danger of life.

Nathan Brown pleaded guilty to carrying out that attack while sitting in the back of a vehicle and pulling the woman’s scarf tightly, compressing her neck and rendering her unable to breathe.

He admitted a charge of assaulting the woman to her injury and danger of life in Jedburgh on December 29.

Sentence was deferred on Brown, formerly of Hawick but now described as a prisoner, until next month.
