An Aberdeen teenager has admitted throwing a knife across a room and attacking his mother.
Kristopher Spence, 18, appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on Friday, and entered guilty pleas to two charges.
The teen pled guilty to placing his arm around his mother’s neck and compressing.
He also admitted shouting, acting in an aggressive manner while in possession of a knife, and throwing the knife across a room into a door.
The offences happened on May 13 at his home address, given in court papers as Creel Drive, Aberdeen.
Sheriff Colin Dunipace deferred sentence for reports until next month.
