Alif Miah admits slashing woman's throat in Aberdeen

A man has admitted cutting a 63-year-old woman's throat in Aberdeen.

Alif Miah, 33, carried out the attack on Alexandra Crawford in the city's Richmond Walk in September last year.

He admitted assaulting the victim to her severe injury, permanent disfigurement and to the danger of her life.

Judge Lord Stewart deferred sentence at the High Court in Edinburgh, and told him: "You have obviously pled guilty to a serious offence."
