Fife man’s 18 years of violence against women
A Fife man committed a horrific catalogue of violence against a succession of partners and other females for almost two decades.
One woman was pinned down as William Rollo poked her eyes, another was throttled and punched and one victim was hit with a glass bottle.
The offences were carried out from 2001 up until this year in various parts of Fife. The victims were four women who were then his partner and two other females, one aged just 16 at the time.
Rollo (34), currently a prisoner at Perth, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court and admitted a long list of offences.
On an occasion between 28th February 2001 and 12th August 2002 at High Street, Burntisland, he assaulted his then partner, by seizing her by the throat, applying pressure to it, held her by the throat against a wall and punched her on the head.
On an occasion between 12th August 2002 and 28th February 2003, at Murray Knowe, Cardenden, he assaulted his then partner by attempting to punch her on the head.
On an occasion between 18th April 2005 and 17th April 2006 at Navitie Park, Ballingry, he assaulted another partner, by striking her on the body with a glass bottle, causing it to break.
On 1st January 2012, at Waverley Place, Lochore, he assaulted another woman, his then partner, by punching her on the head to her injury.
On an occasion between 6th September and 25th December 2012, at Waverley Place, Lochore, he assaulted the same victim, by repeatedly shouting, swearing, seizing her by the throat, pinned her to a chair, sat astride her and repeatedly pressed his fingers into her eyes.
On 10th January last year at Malcolm Street, Ballingry, he uttered threats of violence and derogatory remarks to another female, threw a TV set and repeatedly struck a pair of shoes with a knife.
On 20th January this year at Balgreggie Road, Cardenden, he assaulted a female then aged 16.
On 30th April at Kirk Wynd, Kirkcaldy, he assaulted his then partner, by pushing her, causing her to hit against a window and strike her head, all to her injury.
Sheriff Charles MacNair called for reports and Rollo will remain in custody until he is sentenced on 17th September.
