A KILCREGGAN woman has been charged with serious assault after allegedly attacking a neighbour at his home on Hogmanay.

Police were called out to an address in Fairfield Gardens at around 10pm on December 31 after an argument broke out within the property.

Officers reported that the 62-year-old male householder was struck on the head with a lamp by a 44-year-old female neighbour.

The victim was said to have sustained numerous cuts to his head and face requiring medical glue and 24 stitches.

The woman was arrested and charged with alleged serious assault after being interviewed by police and she was held in custody to appear at Dumbarton Sheriff Court, where she was remanded for trial at a later date.

Police say their enquiries at the Hogmanay incident also revealed a separate alleged assault by the same woman, this time involving a 51-year-old man from the same area, during October last year.

Following an investigation, the woman was issued with an additional charge of assault to severe injury and permanent disfigurement after allegedly striking the man with a bottle, causing a facial fracture, a nose fracture and facial bruising.
