Lochaber man facing jail for assault on 17-year-old

editor@obantimes.co.uk

A 57-YEAR-OLD Lochaber man is facing jail after being found guilty of assaulting a 17-year-old ‘almost defenceless’ girl.

At Fort William Sheriff Court last week, George Pendreigh from Morar denied seizing the college student by the hair and repeatedly punching her on the head on May 13, 2016 near her flat in Mallaig.
