New partner had face slashed in knife attack


A Fife man slashed the face of his ex-partner’s new boyfriend with a knife, leaving him permanently scarred.

Jordan Clampett (24), of Beath View, Dunfermline, is now behind bars for the attack which took place almost two years ago.

He admitted that On 9th June 2015 at Nith Street he assaulted a man by striking him on the head with a knife to his severe injury and permanent disfigurement. The offence was committed while Clampett was on three bail orders.

Depute fiscal Alex Piper told Dunfermline Sheriff Court, “The complainer was in a relation with the former partner of the accused.”

The couple were in bed in the morning of the incident when stones were thrown at the windows of the house by Clampett.

The female told him to go away before the man put some clothes on and went to the front door where “words were exchanged”, added the depute.

“The accused made a slashing motion cutting down the left side of his face,” said Ms Piper.

The victim felt blood on his face and went inside where he saw the extent of the injury in the bathroom mirror.

He received two wounds to his face covering an area of six to seven inches.

The victim was taken to the Victoria Hospital where he required eight stitches to be inserted in his face and he will be left with a permanent scar.

Clampett is currently on a restriction of liberty order for previous offences. Sheriff MacNair remanded him in custody until sentencing on 3rd May.
