Man jailed after attack on woman in Kintore
A man who attacked a woman in Aberdeenshire has been jailed for two-and-a half years.
Bryan Buchan was also placed under a 10-year non-harassment order following the attack in Kintore in December.
The 32-year-old was originally charged with attempting to murder his 29-year-old victim, but was convicted of a lesser charge of assault to injury.
At the High Court in Edinburgh, Lord Clark said Buchan had subjected the woman to "a frightening ordeal".
He was warned breaching the non-harassment order could lead to a further prison sentence.
