A COUNTY woman who admitted assaulting a man and woman during separate incidents in Dunbar has been ordered to pay her victims compensation.

Morgan Wilson, 24, assaulted Robyn Clift while she was at the woman’s home at the town’s Dempster Place at about 11pm on January 24 last year.

Wilson grabbed Ms Clift by the hair and pulled her to the floor during the unprovoked incident.

Edinburgh Sheriff Court was also told of a further incident outside The Eagle Inn pub five days later which saw Wilson bite Joshua Graham on the arm to his injury.

The court heard that the assailant then assaulted Ms Clift on the same evening by grabbing her by the hair and throwing her to the ground outside the pub.

Wilson, of The Barkeridge, Oldhamstocks, then struck her with her hands and kicked the woman on the body on January 29 last year.

The court was told that the pair came to blows after unexpectedly meeting in the street and Wilson had blocked Ms Clift from entering the pub.

Wilson had grabbed her victim by the hair and, after dragging her to the ground, she was pulled off by members of the public.

The police were called by concerned bar staff after Wilson was seen to kick Ms Clift on the body as she lay on the ground.

Ms Clift was said to have suffered soreness to her head and upper right arm following the attack.

Wilson left the area before police arrived and she was later traced and arrested over the assault on March 3 last year.

Lawyer Mary Moultrie, representing Wilson, said that her client was an activity instructor and had been suffering from depression at the time of the offences.

Sheriff Matthew Auchincloss told Wilson she must pay a total of £1,000 in compensation – £500 to both Mr Graham and Ms Clift – as a punishment for her behaviour.
