A 28-year-old Thurso man appeared via video link from custody at Inverness Sheriff Court on Monday and admitted assaulting his partner and throwing a brick at the bonnet of her car.
But before hearing the facts, Sheriff Margaret Neilson deferred sentence for a background report on Brendon Stevens.
He was released on bail to an address in St Peter's Road, Thurso, which his lawyer Fiona Macdonald gave to the court.
Stevens pleaded guilty to pulling the woman's hair at a house in Murkle View, Thurso, on January 8 and threatening behaviour, shouting, swearing and throwing the item at her vehicle.
Sheriff Neilson said: "Given the nature of the charges and his previous record, I think a report will be necessary."
Ms Macdonald agreed and asked the sheriff to instruct one. He will re-appear for sentence at Wick Sheriff Court on February 10.
