A teenager has told a court how a tattooist “pushed” her hand on to his private parts at the same time she was receiving a decoration on her arm.
The 18-year-old female told the High Court in Edinburgh that Paul McLellan, 46, sexually assaulted her at a house in Dundee in February 2013.
Yesterday a jury of seven men and eight women heard that McLellan was giving the girl a tattoo at the time of the alleged assault.
She told the court: “I felt my hand being pushed past the zip. He was tattooing my arm.
“He was holding my arm in place.”
The girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was giving evidence on the third day of proceedings against McLellan, a prisoner at Perth.
Prosecutors claim that McLellan sexually assaulted the girl at a house in Dundee on two separate occasions in February 2013.
He is also alleged to have sent a “sexual written communication” to the girl.
Prosecutors claim he did this for the purpose of “obtaining sexual gratification or for humiliating, distressing or alarming her”.
Prosecutors also claim that he breached the Tattooing of Minors Act by tattooing her as she was a person aged under 18.
The Crown claims he broke the law with a total of 11 girls.
He has been charged with sexual assaults and breaching the Tattooing of Minors Act 1969.
The teenagers were aged between 15 and 18 at the time of the alleged offences.
Mr McLellan denies all charges.
The trial, before judge Lord Boyd, continues.
