A MAN left his neighbour with two black eyes after walking into his home and attacking him.

Dean Thomson, 29, repeatedly punched the student in the early hours of New Year's Day 2022.

The young man had returned to his Dennistoun home at around 1am and kicked a bag of rubbish on the landing of the close. This resulted in Thomson’s young son crying.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court last week, prosecutor Derek Buchanan said: “The complainer and his friends then went into the complainer’s flat.

“Thereafter, the accused went into the complainer’s home and punched him a number of times in the face.

“The accused’s mother was there, and she tried to pull the accused away. He returned to his own flat.”

The court heard that the victim didn’t call the police at the time but woke up the following morning with injuries.

Mr Buchanan added: “He had two black eyes, a cut lip, and a pool of blood in his left eye. He attended hospital for assessment.

“It was confirmed the pool of blood was not serious. Thereafter, the police traced the accused at his home on January 9. He was cautioned and charged and made no reply.”

Thomson’s lawyer explained that her client’s neighbour causes “disruption”.

The defence solicitor said: “He resides at the property with a number of flatmates and they’re students. There’s a lot of disruption and noise.

“The complainer kicked the bag, and my client’s two-year-old son was in the house and was crying. It was a wholly inappropriate way to react.

“He simply let his emotions and anger get the better of him. He understands he can’t conduct himself in this way and is extremely embarrassed.”

Sheriff Patricia Pryce replied: “The social work report makes that very clear but it’s a nasty assault.”

Thomson’s lawyer added: “He is someone who doesn’t appear before the court and does well for himself. He never wishes to appear again.

“He is apologetic for his actions and is suitable for a community-based disposal.”

Sheriff Pryce told Thomson: “This was quite a serious assault. You left this young man with two black eyes.

“However, against that, you have the background of someone who keeps out of trouble. I'm prepared to deal with this by alternative to custody.”

Thomson, of Dennistoun, was ordered to carry out 150 hours of unpaid work.
