Falkirk Sheriff Court heard that the accused told her victim he “deserved it” and that she “wanted to give him a scar on his face” like her’s.

Sheriff James MacDonald said: “These offences are such that no other disposal than detention is appropriate, given their nature and the fact that they involve the same complainer.”
