Supervised term for Wick man

A WICK man, who assaulted a fellow bar customer will be supervised by a social worker for a year.
The sentence was imposed on Andrew Bruce at Wick Sheriff Court yesterday.
Bruce, 35, took exception to a remark made during “a pleasant evening” in the bar of the Castletown village hotel, on January 25.
He approached Stacey Matheson who was in his company and there was an exchange of words before the accused backed off.
Miss Matheson then realised her neck was bleeding and she was subsequently treated in hospital for small cut.
Bruce, of 39 Hill Avenue, Wick, admitted assaulting her by pressing an unknown item against her body.
Sheriff Andrew Berry told the accused he was duty bound to co-operate with his social worker and accept all her requirements, particularly in respect of medical advice.
The sheriff previously praised Miss Matheson who stated that she was prepared to come to court to speak on Bruce’s behalf about the help, he needed.
