‘Bully’ who assaulted his girlfriend told to pay compensation

A Latvian “bully” who assaulted his ex-girlfriend was told to pay her £250 in compensation at Lerwick Sheriff Court today.

Sergejs Davidenkovs, 28, of the town’s St Magnus Street, admitted pushing his victim to the ground and punching her on the head to her injury on 11th December.

The court heard a row had broken out between the two after she had refused to attend a works night out with him, as neither of them were employed with the firm hosting the event.
Davidenkovs became annoyed with her reluctance and assaulted her.

Sheriff Graeme Napier told him: “I am imposing a compensation order in favour of the lady you assaulted. She should not have been subject to your bullying, which is what it amounts to.”

He warned Davidenkovs would be facing jail if he failed to keep up with his payments.
