Sentence has been deferred on a Dingwall man who admitted seriously assaulting a teenager then struggling with police officers.

Steven Shepherd (24) repeatedly struck the youth and seized him on the neck on February 19 during the incident at the town's Newton Road.

Later at Pefferside Park he struggled with police officers and was found to have cannabis on him, according to papers at Inverness Sheriff Court.

Shepherd also admitted threatening and abusive behaviour at the park on the same day by shouting and swearing.

Shepherd, of Old River Road, had his sentence deferred until August 25 for the preparations of background reports.
