‘Bel­liger­ent’ yob sent to jail for rape threats

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ALAN WIL­SON

A “BEL­LIGER­ENT” thug who hurled abuse at po­lice and threat­ened to rape and kill their fam­i­lies has been locked up.

Jail­ing Keiran Do­rian, 22, for 10 months at Dundee Sher­iff Court, Sher­iff Alas­tair Carmichael said: “I have run out of pa­tience with you and the only ap­pro­pri­ate sen­tence is a cus­to­dial one.”

Fis­cal de­pute Sue Ruta told the court that on De­cem­ber 16 last year, Do­rian was seen run­ning down the middle of the road on Mar­ket­gait by CCTV operators.

Ms Ruta said when po­lice ar­rived, he be­came “bel­liger­ent” – re­fus­ing to en­gage with the of­fi­cers.

She said: “He was shout­ing and swear­ing and say­ing things such as: “You white po­lice ***** , gay ******** , why are you try­ing to kiss me?”

Po­lice tried to ar­rest him and he said: “I’m go­ing to rape and kill your chil­dren, I’m go­ing to rape and kill your wife.”

In an ear­lier in­ci­dent, on Au­gust 4 and 5, Do­rian was seen on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions in Rewind night­club on Sea­gate, de­spite be­ing con­tin­u­ally asked to leave by staff.

Po­lice were called and he was placed in hand­cuffs, but at­tempted to bite a po­lice of­fi­cer on the arm.

On a third oc­ca­sion, the fis­cal said, Do­rian was at Weavers Mill pub in Cam­per­down Leisure Park when he was seen to be heav­ily un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol.

He started swear­ing at a staff mem­ber, call­ing her names and when he was told po­lice were on the way he said: “Why? Do the po­lice want to **** you?”

Do­rian then went to nearby Mcdon­ald’s and when po­lice ar­rived he was seen at the restau­rant talk­ing to staff. Ms Ruta said: “He raised his fists at them ag­gres­sively, shouted and swore and wouldn’t de­sist.”

Do­rian, of Hawthorn Grove, ad­mit­ted, on De­cem­ber 16 at Mar­ket­gait, he be­haved in a threat­en­ing or abusive man­ner, ran into the road, re­peat­edly ut­tered ho­mo­pho­bic re­marks to po­lice of­fi­cers and threat­ened vi­o­lence to­wards their fam­i­lies.

He fur­ther ad­mit­ted that on Au­gust 5, on Sea­gate, he as­saulted PC Matthew Boath and at­tempted to bite him on the body, and on April 4, at Weavers Mill, he be­haved in a threat­en­ing or abusive man­ner, acted ag­gres­sively, shouted and swore, made of­fen­sive and abusive re­marks and re­fused to leave, and at Mcdon­ald’s be­haved in a threat­en­ing or abusive man­ner, acted ag­gres­sively and shouted and swore.
