A man has admitted carrying out an attack on an Aberdeen bus.
Martin Dorrans, 39, “lunged” at Paul Robertson as they were both travelling on a bus in Aberdeen at around 9.15am on October 23 last year, Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard on Wednesday.
Fiscal depute Lynne McVicar said the accused was travelling with a woman who said something to him about Mr Robertson, who is a former partner of Dorrans’ current partner.
“After those words were spoken, the accused approached the complainer and lunged at him,” said Ms McVicar.
