    A horrible thug left his mum with agonising bite marks on her forehead after grabbing her in an unprovoked attack.

    Nicola Stanford had been pulled towards her son, Christian Stanford, 25, who then bit her on the head in a sickening move recalled in Perth Sheriff Court.

    The mum had been expecting her Christian to call round at her home so left the door open for him, only for the yob to begin shouting at her on arrival.

    Stanford's disgraceful attack on his mother was said to have left a "bite mark", as fiscal depute Andrew Harding recalled the lead-up and subsequent attack, DailyRecord reported.

    He said: "He [Christian] attended his mother’s address. She had left the door unlocked as she was expecting him.

    "For no apparent reason, he started shouting at her. He went for her by grabbing her head with one hand and raised his other hand into a clenched fist.

    "He pulled her head towards him and bit her on the forehead. He was shouting the whole time that he was doing this. He then released his hold on her head and left the house. She took her opportunity to phone the police.

    "There was a bite mark on her forehead which did not break the skin and she declined medical attention."

    Stanford, from Perth, admitted to seizing the head of mum Nicola and biting her, injuring the family member during an altercation in Scone, Perth, on August 17 last year.

    Solicitor Jamie Baxter, defending, said: "He is not proud of this incident. He had been arguing with his mother and this occurred. They remain in contact."

    Sheriff Gillian Wade told Stanford: "It is a serious assault. I don’t know if you are taking it quite as seriously as you need to."

    The 25-year-old was ordered to attend a Right Track programme for young offenders.
