A 25-year-old man has admitted hitting a former partner’s buttocks with a dog lead.

Dylan Scott also punched her arm to her injury.

That attack was carried out at his home in Burnfoot Road, Hawick, on December 7 last year.

Sheriff Peter Paterson told him: “This is a serious matter.”

Sentence was deferred at Jedburgh Sheriff Court for background reports.
