AN IRVINE man has admitted assaulting three different people.

Darren Holmes, of Killoch Way, carried out the attacks on New Year’s Eve in St Marnock Place, Kilmarnock.

The 31-year-old admitted repeatedly punching and kicking a man on the head and body before assaulting another man by kicking him on the head and body.

Holmes also attempted to bite a police officer along with admitting shouting, swearing and uttering threats.

When appearing at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week, Holmes pled guilty.

His case has been adjourned until later this month in order to gather social work reports.
