A man accused of repeatedly stamping on his pregnant partner’s stomach while assaulting her has been remanded in custody.
Prosecutors allege that Graeme Dickson, 24, of Campbell’s Close, Ogilvies Road in Dundee, assaulted Charley Lawson, then pregnant, on August 8 this year at Specklewood Court.
It is alleged he grabbed her by the neck, threw her to the ground and chased after her, caught hold of her, struggled with her and caused her to fall to the floor again before then repeatedly stamping on her abdomen, all to her injury.
Dickson is further accused of, on the same date at the same location, behaving in a threatening or abusive manner, repeatedly shouting and swearing, throwing items about the house and threatening violence to Ms Lawson.
It is then alleged he seized her mobile from her hand and wilfully or recklessly threw it against a wall, damaging both the phone and the wall.
Dickson made no plea during his brief, private appearance on petition and was remanded in custody by Sheriff Alastair Carmichael while the case was continued for further examination.
