A MAN touched a woman’s buttocks in a Dunfermline nightclub and then headbutted her boyfriend.

Thomas McPhee, 28, of Crook Moss, Crook of Devon, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on August 26 last year, at Lourenzo’s, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner and touched a female on the buttocks over her clothing.

He also admitted he assaulted a man by headbutting him to his injury.

Depute fiscal Dev Kapadia said: “It’s not suggested by the defence that the touch was accidental. The incident with the female happened then her boyfriend intervened and was assaulted.”

Sheriff Keith O’Mahoney called for reports and McPhee will be sentenced on September 25.

It will be decided then whether McPhee will be placed on the sex offenders' register.
