A Newport man has been charged with attempting to murder a woman by holding her head in a water-filled bath.
Troy McCrae appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court on charges alleging that he tried to kill Sarah Marshall.
The 27-year-old, of Tay Street, is accused of holding Ms Marshall’s head under water in a filled bath until she became unconscious.
McCrae is also charged with throwing her against glass at the Brig o’ Tay pub on Boat Road, Newport, on Friday.
Later that same day he allegedly grabbed her and restrained her by the throat at a property on Seacraig Court, Newport.
Further charges state he threw a table against a wall and shouted and swore, demanding Ms Marshall open the bathroom door within the property.
McCrae is said to have kicked the bathroom door repeatedly, until it came off its hinges, and repeatedly seized her by the throat, struck her head off a ceramic sink and pushed her.
He allegedly punched her on the head then submerged her head under water in a bath and held her head under water, whereby she lost consciousness, in an attempt to murder her.
McCrae is also accused of assaulting Blair Grossett by pushing him against a wall.
He is further accused of assaulting Skye Melville by struggling with her and pushing her, to her injury, on the same date.
McCrae is said to have attacked a fourth person, Carl Seed, by running at him, struggling with him, pushing him to the ground and punching him on the head, to his injury, in the common stairwell at the property on Seacraig Court, on Saturday.
McCrae made no plea or declaration in relation to the seven charges on petition.
He faces six charges of assault one relating to attempted murder and a seventh charge of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.
The case was continued for further investigation.
McCrae was remanded in custody.
