An Ayr woman attacked a bar worker in Cumnock after the victim had asked her to leave when she visited the male toilets.

Bobbie Graham, 33, admitted assaulting the woman at the Victoria Inn at The Square on August 20, 2022. She repeatedly punched her on the head and body in the savage assault.

Graham, of Thornyflat Place, then kicked the woman on the body repeatedly and repeatedly pulled her hair whilst on the ground, to her injury.

Not guilty pleas from a co-accused Kayleigh Elizabeth, 24, of Howarth Indale Avenue, Prestwick, were accepted and she was allowed to leave the dock.

The Procurator Fiscal depute said: "At 10pm on August 20 the accused and former co-accused attended the locus and ordered drinks at the bar. The witness was working as bar staff. 

"At one point the accused entered the male toilets. The witness followed and reqested that she exit. In light of her behaviour she was asked to leave the locus.

"At 10.30pm the accused approached the witness behind the bar grabbing at her hair and swinging punches.

"She attempted to push the accused away whie she contiinued grabbing her hair.

"A struggle ensued and both parties fell to the ground with the accused on top of the witness.

"Police were contacted but the parties not formally cautioned and charged due to their level of intoxication."
