A man who smashed a glass into the face of a 79-year-old has been ordered to pay compensation.
Kenneth Thomson, 59, was ordered by Dundee Sheriff Court to pay £1,000 compensation to Henry Heenan.
The court heard Mr Heenan was left with permanent scarring on his face after Thomson launched the attack, at the Dolphin Bar, Fintry Road. Thomson had asked the pensioner if he could borrow money, which resulted in an argument and a struggle between the two of them.
Mr Heenan fell to the floor and sat there for a brief period, unable to get up, before returning to a table.
Thomson then grabbed Mr Heenan’s pint, poured it over him, and then smashed the empty glass into his face.
He was left with permanent scarring as a result of the incident.
Thomson, of Castlecary Gardens, admitted assaulting Henry Heenan, 79, by striking him on the head with a glass, to his severe injury and permanent disfigurement, at the Dolphin Bar on December 14 last year. Solicitor advocate Kris Gilmartin, defending, said: “Since this offence he has barely left the house. He truly regrets his involvement here.”
On top of the compensation order, Thomson was also fined £650 and placed on a four month curfew, restricting him to his home address between 7pm and 7am daily.
