Man forced ex-girlfriend to kiss shoe in violent attack
Sheharyar Awan spat in his victim's face, grabbed her by the throat and emptied her bag.
An abuser spat in his former girlfriend's face then forced her to kiss his shoe in a "humiliating" attack.
Sheharyar Awan, 21, was found guilty of attacking Mahona Bhuyon shortly after they split up.
At one point, he grabbed Ms Bhuyon by the throat and prevented her calling police.
She eventually managed to flee the flat they were still sharing and was found cowering in the stairwell.
Perth Sheriff Court was told Awan had forced Ms Bhuyon to kiss his shoe when he attacked her after she had gone on a night out with friends.
Ms Bhuyon said she had been in a relationship with Awan from September 2015 until May last year and the attack took place on July 16 when they were still sharing a flat.
She said the night before the incident she had been out with colleagues at a nightclub in Perth and had returned home at around 3am. She was woken by Awan entering her room at around 8am.
Ms Bhuyon told the court: "He came in and sat next to me. I was half asleep. He grabbed my throat and I woke up."
She could not recall if Awan spoke at that stage but when she attempted to put on trousers, he took them from her and hit her with them.
She added: "The next thing I remember I was on the floor. He kicked me a couple of times in the back of my upper thigh. Then he took off his shoe and put it in my face and he told me to kiss it."
Asked by fiscal depute Robbie Brown if the incident with the shoe had any cultural significance, Ms Bhuyon said it had clearly been intended to "humiliate" her.
Solicitor David Holmes, defending, asked if she had provoked Awan and had grabbed him by the wrists. She said she had only did this to prevent him hitting her.
Awan, from Perth, was found guilty of acting in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and forcing Ms Bhuyon to lick his shoe on 16 July last year.
He was also found guilty of emptying her handbag, seizing her body, forcing her to the floor, grabbing her neck and spitting in her face as well as preventing her from phoning the police.
Sentence was deferred for reports.
