OAP on sex as­sault charges

Paisley Daily Express - - It’s Back To The Classroom For Mums And Dads -

A pen­sioner has been ac­cused of sex­u­ally as­sault­ing two women 15 months apart at the same lo­ca­tion in Lin­wood.

At Pais­ley Sher­iff Court, it is al­leged that John Fer­gu­son, 71, of Ersk­ine­fauld Road in Lin­wood, pounced on Oc­to­ber 5, 2015 at nearby Green­farm Road.

On this oc­ca­sion, he is said to have sex­u­ally as­saulted a woman by seiz­ing hold of her, plac­ing his hand on her but­tocks and re­peat­edly stroking her there while mak­ing sex­ual re­marks.

It is claimed that he struck again on Jan­uary 30 this year and com­mit­ted a sim­i­lar sex­ual as­sault.

This time, he is al­leged to have seized hold of another fe­male by the body, re­fus­ing to re­lease her, threat­en­ing to strike her on the but­tocks and at­tempt­ing to do so while lift­ing her cloth­ing.

When the case against him was called in court, the Crown asked for more time to es­tab­lish con­tact with the ac­cused to find out how he in­tends to pro­ceed.

Sher­iff Sukhwinder Gill con­tin­ued mat­ters with­out plea un­til Novem­ber 1.
