Roderick Bambury, 41, of Lansdowne Court, admitted that on June 17 last year, at a grass area at Lansdowne Court, while acting with another, he assaulted David Boruchi by repeatedly striking him on the head and body with his hands.
He also admitted that on the same date, outside Lansdowne Court and while acting with another, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner likely to cause fear or alarm, shouted and swore and threatened Mr Boruchi with violence and challenged him to fight.
Bambury also admitted that on the same date in Coupar Angus Road and at Liff Road, he possessed a wooden pole.
Fiscal depute Laura Bruce told the court the accused and friends had been drinking alcohol and words were exchanged.
She said CCTV showed the accused seizing Mr Boruchi and striking him on the head and body.
She added: “None of his friends reacted and the accused and his former co-accused moved away.
“The accused then returned with a wooden pole.”
Solicitor Larry Flynn told the court the assault amounted to a slap on the head and a slap on the body.
Sheriff George Way said he would defer sentence for good behaviour to the same date as his former co-accused, telling him to be of good behaviour until he returned for sentence on September 20.
