A man who viciously assaulted his ex’s fiancé as they dropped off his daughter for her first ever day of school has been told he faces jail.
Mark Gorthy knocked Scott Wallace unconscious on the doorstep of Dundee’s Camperdown Primary School on the first day of term on August 18 last year.
Mr Wallace – the now fiancé of Gorthy’s ex-partner Tracey Duncan – was pushing a buggy with a six-month-old baby inside when Gorthy attacked at the school.
Gorthy had turned up at the school to join Miss Duncan in seeing off the estranged couple’s five-year-old daughter.
But he flipped when he saw that Mr Wallace was also present.
Dundee Sheriff Court was shown CCTV footage of the vicious assault – showing Gorthy smashing Wallace to the ground, knocking him out cold, just five feet from the entrance.
Gorthy is then seen to stamp on Mr Wallace’s head before he is tackled by bystanders.
Gorthy, 31, of Anton Drive, Dundee, pled guilty on indictment to a charge of assault to severe injury, disfigurement and impairment.
Sheriff Lorna Drummond QC deferred sentence for reports and warned Gorthy that he could be sent to prison.
