A TEENAGER carried out a violent assault on a 14-year-old girl in a Dalmuir close in what was described by a sheriff as a “party cat-fight”.

Chloe Butcher, 19, kicked her victim on the head in the attack in the common area at Dalmuir Court on August 3 last year.

Butcher, of Gaitskell Avenue, Alexandria, appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court last Friday for sentencing from Sheriff John Hamilton.

She had pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to a charge of assaulting the young teenage girl in the common close of the tower block at the corner of Dumbarton Road and Duntocher Road.

Sentence had been deferred from that hearing on June 3 in order for the court to obtain a background report from social workers.

Fiscal depute Gemma McKechnie told the court that another teenager had also been involved in the attack, along with Butcher, and that the incident had been captured on CCTV cameras at the block of flats.

The victim was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow for treatment but was found not to have suffered any injury.

Butcher’s solicitor, Stephen McGuire, said: “The report reflects the fact that Miss Butcher has thought about what happened here, and hopes that she will not come before the court again.”

Sheriff Hamilton said: “I heard the narrative in relation to the co-accused. It was effectively a party cat-fight.”

Butcher was handed a community payback order under which she will have to carry out 100 hours of unpaid community work within six months.

She was also placed under social workers’ supervision until July 2020.
