Man with learning disability admonished for assault on carer in his Dundee home

Man with learning disability admonished for assault on carer in his Dundee home

Robert McColl, of Wentworth Road, was admonished after pleading guilty to assaulting a care assistant.

He admitted striking Susan Gorrie on the body at an address on the same street on May 16 last year.

The court heard that McColl, who has a learning disability, swung his hand and struck Ms Gorrie on the arm and stomach without warning as she was carrying out her duties.

The 58-year-old told her: “You will only leave when I tell you.”

Ms Gorrie later reported the matter at Longhaugh police office and McColl made no response to being cautioned and charged.

Before admonishing McColl, Sheriff George Way said: “I am going to take the view that marking this with a conviction is sufficient for someone who would have difficulty in understanding what was going on.”
