A WOMAN sustained a fractured cheekbone after being repeatedly punched on the head during an assault outside a Rosyth bar.

The offence was carried out by Kevin Webb, who is already on a community payback order for assaulting another woman.

The incident occurred as he left CJs pool hall at around 11.45pm.

Webb, 22, of Torridon Drive, Rosyth, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He previously admitted that on January 26 at Queensferry Road, he assaulted a female by repeatedly punching her on the head to her injury.

Depute fiscal Dev Kapadia said the victim was drunk and made a comment to Webb’s partner in a car park outside the bar.

“The accused punched her two to three times to the head with clenched fists, causing her to fall to the ground,” he added.

A witness took a photograph of the car Webb got into and this later helped police to track him down.

When the victim went to hospital it was found she had a hairline fracture to the cheekbone.

Defence solicitor Roshni Joshi said the woman was “being a bit of a general nuisance to people” and had called her client’s partner “a bitch”.

Webb, a shop worker, has a previous conviction for domestic assault.

Sheriff James MacDonald told Webb: “This is your second conviction for violence perpetrated against women. The woman here was a complete stranger.”

The sheriff imposed a community payback order with 24 months’ supervision and 210 hours of unpaid work. He also ordered Webb to pay £1,000 compensation.
