A thug who punched a student’s teeth out on Aberdeen’s Union Street has been handed unpaid work.
Aleksandrs Lilikins appeared yesterday at Aberdeen Sheriff Court for sentencing, having previously pled guilty to two charges of assault.
Fiscal depute Sally McAuley said the 26-year-old had been walking through the city centre and had been playfighting with friends just before midnight on September 6 2017.
She said one of Lilikins’ friends bumped into the male student who told them to stop fighting.
Lilikins then “punched him in the face with his right hand and caused two teeth to break”.
The value of the resulting dental work was £120.
When a friend of the complainer tried to intervene, Lilikins “pushed” him and “swung a punch at him which did not connect”.

Defence agent Alex Burn drew attention to parts of the social work report which indicated the offence was a “consequence of the amount of alcohol he was consuming at the time”.
Sheriff Graham Buchanan told Lilikins, of Grampian Road, Aberdeen: “This is just completely disgraceful and unacceptable behaviour.”
He ordered him to carry out 225 hours of unpaid work within 12 months.
