A MAN was glassed in the face in an unprovoked attack by complete stranger outside a Dunfermline pub.

Kevin Low was so drunk he claims he cannot remember carrying out the assault and is now facing a jail sentence.

Low, 35, of Croall Place, Kelty, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on April 14, at the Seven Kings, Bridge Street, he assaulted the complainer by striking him on the head with a glass tumbler to his injury.

Depute fiscal Claire Bremner said the victim had been in the smoking area outside the bar with his partner.

Low came into the area and engaged in a conversation with the man before punching him in the face while holding the glass. The victim sustained three cuts to his face.

Defence solicitor Gwen Haggerty said her client could not remember the incident. He was covered in blood when he got home but thought he had been injured by falling over.

Sheriff Alastair Brown said: "This was an entirely unprovoked assault with a glass in licensed premises.”

He warned such an attack could result in a jail term of several years and told Low he should put his affairs in order before coming back to court to be sentenced.

An impact statement from the victim revealed he had been left scarred by the attack and also suffered emotional and psychological trauma as a result of the incident.

Sheriff Brown called for reports and allowed bail to continue until sentencing on December 4.
