A 30-year-old Irvine man bit and injured a woman at an address in Ardrossan.

Scott Miller appeared at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week and pled guilty to one charge of assault to injury.

His plea of not guilty to a second charge was accepted by the prosecutor.

Miller, of Cochrane Street in Irvine, assaulted the woman on April 8 of this year.

He repeatedly seized her by the face and bit her on the head to her injury.

Sentence was deferred for reports until June 27.

Miller’s bail was continued until then.
