A MAN has appeared in court charged with injuring a man and woman at an address in Troon and threatening to kill a dog.

Darryn McIloney denied charges of assault and threatening abusive behaviour when he appeared from custody last Wednesday [September 6]. 

The 32-year-old is accused of leaving a man scarred for life in the alleged attack at Murdoch Court in the town on January 17 this year.

Mr McIloney is alleged to have caused fear and alarm by shouting, swearing and throwing household items around the property.

The Crown accuses him of making threats to kill a dog within the address. 

It's claimed he assaulted the man by repeatedly punching him on the head, and that he then repeatedly struck the same man on the head with a kettle.

The charge alleges that the complainer suffered severe injury and permanent disfigurement at a result.

Mr McIloney is also alleged to have assaulted a woman, on the same date and at the same address, by repeatedly punching her on the head to her injury.

Thee Crown's indictment states the alleged offences were committed while Mr McIloney was the subject of a bail order granted on July 26, 2022.

During a brief hearing at Ayr Sheriff Court last week, defence solicitor Tony Currie told Sheriff Desmond Leslie he and his client were prepared for the case to go to trial, and said he would be lodging a special defence of alibi behalf of his client.

McIloney, whose address was listed in court papers as care of HMP Kilmarnock, was returned to custody and will face the allegations again at a later date.
