A THUG assaulted a woman by throwing a piece of concrete on her, striking her on the head.

Corrie Wilson, of Corserine Terrace, Dalmellington, admitted carrying out the attack in July last year having been released on bail.

In April this year, Wilson conducted himself in a disorderly manner and made threats on Dalmellington High Street and at Ayr Police Station.

The 20-year-old appeared from custody before Sheriff Desmond Leslie at Ayr Sheriff Court last week.

Depute Fiscal Hayley Robertson said: “The accused began messaging a 14-year-old via Facebook and said he was going to his house.

“He attended the house and spoke to the 14-year-old’s mother. Wilson asked to speak to her son but was told to leave.

“Eventually Wilson had to be removed from the garden area. Fifteen minutes later the accused returned.

“At this time he did not have a shirt on and was in possession of a piece of concrete.

“The woman was in the front garden with her son. Wilson threw a piece of concrete at her, striking her on the head. The accused shouted at her but she walked away. Police were contacted. The woman did not require medical attention.”

“In relation to the other incident, at 10pm officers were on mobile patrol within the Cumnock area. The attended the High Street in Dalmellington because the accused had been causing a disturbance.

“On arrival, officer saw Wilson lying down beside some parked cars. He was arrested but became verbally abusive towards officers.

“He was placed within a police cell van and taken to Ayr Police Office where he continued shouting, swearing and threatening officers.

“When he got out the van at Ayr Police Office he said ‘I am going to bottle you and will stab the f*** out your wee lassie.”

Speaking on his behalf, defence solicitor, Steven Maxwell, said: “Mr Wilson is not yet 21 and is already building up an unimpressive record. The court has been very tolerant with him in the past.

“His binge drinking starts at weekends and runs for days.

“Going to custody has brought him up short but he says he will do whatever it takes.”

Addressing the dock, Sheriff Leslie, said: “The most recent matter gives me concern given you were subject to a community payback order and no other orders have worked. This is very much your last chance.”

Wilson has been tagged for three months from 7pm to 7am and will complete a community payback order under supervision for one year.

He has been admonished and dismissed for hitting the woman with a piece of concrete.
