A prostitute and her boyfriend robbed a paralysed man in a violent attack that left the disabled man “fearful for his life”.
Nicola McPhee and Gary McNair – who have both previously been jailed for separate bizarre offences – attacked Darrell Collings on January 28 this year.
Mr Collings ended up in the pair’s flat after encountering McPhee in the street.
Prosecutors say at that point she had stolen his bank cards while her lawyer claims they went to the property to have sex for cash.
But once he entered McNair appeared and launched a violent assault before the pair demanded he reveal his PIN.
McPhee then took a credit card belonging to Mr Collings – who the court heard is partially paralysed down his right hand side – and withdrew £500, blowing it on a TV and cigarettes.
McPhee, 30, a prisoner at HMP Edinburgh, and McNair, 39, a prisoner at HMP Perth, pleaded guilty on indictment to a charge of assault and robbery committed on Mr Collings on January 29 this year.
McPhee further pleaded guilty to stealing £500 from Mr Collings on January 29 and robbing Ronald Nelson, 60, on August 27 last year at St Paul’s Close Dundee.
McNail also admitted a charge of stealing electricity at the couple’s flat in Invercraig Place, Dundee, on January 29.
Sheriff Lorna Drummond QC deferred sentence until a proof in mitigation hearing next week and remanded the pair in custody meantime.
