TWO thugs have confessed to stamping repeatedly on a man’s head, leaving him with a double jaw fracture.

Thomas Bell, 38, who’s address was given as a prisoner of Greenock Prison, and 29-year-old Lisa McDougall, of Graham Avenue, Clydebank, carried out the brutal attack on July 11, 2018, at Auchnacraig Road, Faifley.

Dumbarton Sheriff Court heard last Tuesday how they both attacked a man by striking him on the body with a piece of carpet gripper. They knocked him to the ground and repeatedly punched him on the head and repeatedly stamped on his head to his severe injury.

McDougall also admitted being in possession of an offensive weapon in public.

Prosecutor Joanne Gilmour said: “At 8.40pm on July 11, witnesses saw the two accused, as they were looking out of the windows of their homes at the time, carry out an attack.

“They saw him on the roadway and both of them stamping on his head. This was also observed by a dog walker and another member of the public contacted the police.

“Police attended later at McDougall’s home, but she wasn’t at home.

“[The victim] was treated by paramedics who suspected he had a broken jaw. This was confirmed when he was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. It was found to be fractured in two places - one fracture on the right and the other on the left.

“Police carried out door-to-door enquiries and both accused were traced and taken to Clydebank police office where they were both cautioned and charged.

“Bell replied ‘I don’t remember any of it.’

Sheriff Simon Pender deferred sentence to November 27. Bell was remanded and McDougall remains on bail.
