Vile thug pun­ished over se­cu­rity guard’s or­deal

Evening Times - - NEWS -

A FE­MALE se­cu­rity guard was left fear­ing for her safety af­ter a man bom­barded her with sex­u­ally ex­plicit com­ments and threw a glass bot­tle at her.

Ryan Pren­tice was out­side the GHA Hous­ing Of­fice in Lady­muir Cres­cent, Pol­lok, on Au­gust 5, 2015, with a group of friends when the guard was work­ing.

When she left her van to en­ter the se­cu­rity of­fice, the 21-year-old ap­proached her and be­gan mak­ing com­ments that were so vile the woman did not wish to re­peat them to po­lice.

Later on in the even­ing, the woman left the se­cu­rity of­fice to at­tend her van once again when she ob­served the group head­ing to­wards her.

Pren­tice, of Lochar Cres­cent, con­tin­ued to shout pro­fan­i­ties at her be­fore re­mov­ing a glass bot­tle of MD 20/20 from the waist­band of his trousers and throw­ing it in her di­rec­tion.

The bot­tle nar­rowly missed the vic­tim and caused a large crack in the driver’s door.

Con­cerned for her safety, the guard got into the van and drove to an­other part of the street and called the po­lice and her boss.

Pren­tice and the group be­gan to walk to­wards the van forc­ing her to move again be­fore the po­lice even­tu­ally ar­rived.

Af­ter ap­pre­hend­ing the Pol­lok man, he told cops he had taken al­co­hol and the drug MDMA.

They con­veyed him the Queen El­iz­a­beth Uni­ver­sity Hospi­tal where he con­tin­ued to make sex­u­ally ex­plicit com­ments to the two po­lice of­fi­cers, de­spite warn­ings.

Pren­tice ap­peared at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court for sen­tenc­ing af­ter plead­ing guilty to throw­ing the glass bot­tle, act­ing in a threat­en­ing man­ner and mak­ing sex­u­ally ex­plicit com­ments to po­lice.

He was also charged with an- other in­ci­dent on Septem­ber 30, 2016, in Linthaugh Road, where he was caught driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol.

Pren­tice was in­volved in col­li­sion which re­sulted in the car’s bumper be­ing dis­lodged and the head­lights be­ing dam­aged.

His de­fence agent told the court that his client had no rec­ol­lec­tion of the ini­tial in­ci­dent due to tak­ing a com­bi­na­tion of drugs and al­co­hol. Sher­iff Find­lay or­dered Pren­tice to wear a tag­ging de­vice, pay his vic­tim £250 com­pen­sa­tion, un­dergo su­per­vi­sion for two years and dis­qual­i­fied him from driv­ing for a to­tal of two years.
