Assaulted Woman Escapes Through Bathroom Window to safety from Drunken Partner in Dunfermline

Dunfermline, Scotland – A shocking drunken assault has led to the imprisonment of Roy Ramsay, 34, from Henryson Road in Dunfermline. The incident occurred on January 15 in Kincardine, where Ramsay attacked his then partner, prompting her to escape out of a bathroom window and seek refuge at a relative’s home. Ramsay appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court, where he admitted to repeatedly seizing his partner by the neck, throwing her to the ground, and restricting her breathing, putting her in danger of serious injury.

According to depute fiscal Isma Mukhtar, the couple had been in a relationship since early 2022 and had been drinking together at home before heading to a bar in Alloa where an argument ensued. Upon returning home, Ramsay assaulted his partner by grabbing her, throwing her against a bannister, and applying pressure to her neck, causing her to fear for her life.

The victim managed to escape and ran to her cousin’s home for help, where authorities were contacted. Officers found her with visible injuries, including a black eye and a swollen face. During the court proceedings, defense solicitor Stephen Morrison mentioned that Ramsay had consumed a substantial amount of alcohol on the day of the assault and expressed remorse for his actions.

Sheriff Susan Duff, acknowledging the severity of the situation, sentenced Ramsay to two years in prison and imposed a non-harassment order for three years, aiming to protect the victim from any further harm. The victim’s harrowing experience serves as a stark reminder of the devastating effects of domestic violence and the importance of seeking help and support in such situations.
