A HADDINGTON man who punched his ex-partner will be sentenced later this month.

Tyler Bodycomb lashed out at his former girlfriend by punching her in the face earlier this year.

The assault by Bodycomb, of Kirk View, caused the woman to fall to the ground to her injury when he attacked her at his home.

The 26-year-old appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court and pleaded guilty.

Sheriff Michael O’Grady QC deferred sentence to May 23.

Bodycomb admitted assaulting the woman by punching her to the face, causing her to fall and injure herself, at his home on February 3 this year.
