A woman has admitted to assaulting three members of the emergency services.

Emma Robinson pled guilty to three charges at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week.

The court heard that Robinson had asked police to attend her home in Irvine’s Hunter Drive on November 11, 2018.

While at the property, officers had cause to place the 39-year-old under arrest and requested a van to escort her to the relevant police office.

Robinson, who had meanwhile been placed in a police car, kicked one of the officers on the left leg. She was put in the van and taken to Saltcoats Police Office.

The court also heard that on November 15, officers had again been requested to attend at Robinson’s home.

An ambulance was also contacted to attend to carry out checks on Robinson and it was decided she would be taken to Crosshouse Hospital.

Whilst on route in the ambulance, Robinson became aggressive and attempted to remove the seatbelt.

The ambulance eventually had cause to stop and an ambulance technician went to the back of the vehicle to put the seatbelt back on.

Robinson kicked the woman on the left leg.

On arriving at A&E, Robinson was placed on an ambulance trolley and began hitting out again.

She struck one of the paramedics to the abdomen area.

Police were contacted and arrived shortly after.

Robinson was again placed under arrest but remained in hospital over night for observation.

Sheriff Michael Hanlon adjourned the case until March 12 and called for reports.

Robinson will return for sentencing on that date.
