Brute permanently disfigures ex-girlfriend before viciously attacking new boyfriend in bed

A brute has left his ex-partner permanently disfigured in a nasty attack on her and her new boyfriend.

Robert Martin, 56, of Barnes Street in Ayr, launched a vicious attack on his ex and her new partner on June 5 last year when he uninvited entered their home and garden in Ayrs Chalmers Road.

One of Martin’s victims was still in bed when he began beating her on the head and body.

Ayr Sheriff Court heard Martin’s ex-partner went to bed at 9pm on June 5, 2021 before being woken up at 9.40pm by her dogs barking.

She spotted a broken wooden table outside and heard Martin climb over the fence.

Martin had entered the garden uninvited before launching his attack by grabbing the woman’s hair, forcing her to the ground and repeatedly punching her in the head and body.

Martin then let himself into the house and found his ex’s new partner in bed beating him on the head and body.

The woman was hit again and later said she felt it “knocked her almost unconscious”.

Both witnesses were taken to the hospital and Martin was tracked down by police.

Martin’s ex was left with two broken ribs and a laceration on her upper lip, described as the full thickness of the lip.

She required facial surgery at Crosshouse Hospital and the injury is said to leave permanent scars.

A crack in her tooth has caused sensitivity and she may need a root canal on four of her teeth.

Her new partner had superficial head injuries and bruises on her face.

Police went back to the crime scene and noticed a broken wooden table and traces of blood found inside the house.

Blood stains were found on the bedroom door and there was a blood stain on the bed.

Attorney John Gallagher told Sheriff Desmond Leslie: “Mr Martin comes before you as a genuine first offender.”

Martin’s sentencing was adjourned to allow the court to obtain reports on the criminal justice community’s social work.

He will reappear at a later date.
