Man seriously injured 13-year-old boy in park attack

Gary Jamieson, 18, attacked the schoolboy after telling him to 'get out of my scheme'.

A teenager left a 13-year-old boy with severe injuries after attacking him in a Glasgow park.

Gary Jamieson also struck a man repeatedly with a glass bottle in a separate attack filmed on a mobile phone.

The 18-year-old assaulted the schoolboy in Govan’s Elder Park last October, leaving him with a fractured elbow, after telling him to “get out of my scheme”.

Jamieson’s 43-year-old victim was attacked in nearby Ibrox in February after a row over tobacco.

It was footage of this incident, filmed on a mobile phone, that led to the teenager’s arrest.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday, Jamieson pled guilty to both charges of assaulting the boy to his severe injury and attacking the other man.

Sheriff Johanna Johnston QC remanded Jamieson in custody meantime for background reports.
