A DRUMRY man who attacked a shopper in a Clydebank supermarket has been locked up while he waits to be sentenced.

John Gray, 39, of Peel View, attempted to punch his victim on the head at the town’s Asda store on January 5.

On the same day he told police officers that his name was Kevin Gray and he was 33 years old.

Gray appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court for sentencing on Friday after pleading guilty at a hearing in April to charges of assault and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

He had previously been convicted at a trial last year of making sexual comments towards a 15-year-old girl in Dalmuir Square, and of touching another girl on the breast, spitting on her, struggling with police, shouting, swearing and acting aggressively in Dunswin Avenue, on May 29, 2016.

Sheriff Simon Pender deferred sentence until November 16 to obtain a full social background report previously ordered. Gray was remanded in custody.
