A THUG who assaulted his ex-lover was later found with a £4,500 drugs haul.

Ashkan Jooyandeh, 27, pounced on Catriona Orr at an Airbnb in Hyndland on December 5 2020.

Jooyandeh struck after Miss Orr attacked his friend Elaine Brooks.

Officers later found Jooyandeh's stash of cocaine and cannabis at the property.

Jooyandeh claimed he was holding it for someone else and he was the victim.

Jooyandeh pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to the assault to Miss Orr's injury.

He also admitted being concerned in the supply of cannabis and cocaine.

The court heard Miss Orr argued with Miss Brooks on social media before she attended the property and demanded entry.

Prosecutor Carrie Stevens said Miss Brooks attacked Miss Orr before Jooyandeh stepped in.

Miss Stevens added: "He grabbed Miss Orr by the hair and pushed her to the ground.

"He then kicked and punched her on the head and body."

Jooyandeh then filmed with his mobile phone before she grabbed his head and attacked Miss Brooks again.

Jooyandeh then attacked Miss Orr for a second time and spat on her.

A 999 call was made and Miss Orr fled the scene.

Police officers arrived and found the drugs and paraphinalia in the property.

Jooyandeh said: "I'm being threatened, I'm the victim."

Miss Stevens added: "The cannabis is valued between £2,500 and 3,500 and the cocaine is valued between £400 and £1000 depending on the purity."

Usman Hussain, defending, told the court Jooyandeh allowed Miss Orr into the property as she was making noise outside and he made a mistake.

The lawyer added: "Jooyandeh said he was coerced and threatened and that's why he was the victim.

"This had gone on for several months as he was intimidated after refusing to comply to those telling him to look after the drugs.

"They went a step further and assaulted him and there were threats made against his family."

Sentence was deferred for next month for background reports by Sheriff John McCormick who continued Jooyandeh's remand in custody meantime.
