A man sexually assaulted a student in a dark lane after a night out with her classmates.
Lamin Jadama, 26, pounced on the then 23-year-old in Glasgow city centre on June 22, 2018.
Jadama preyed on the student who was stranded having lost her handbag and mobile phone.
He offered no help to the now 27-year-old and led her to a nearby lane where he attacked her.
Jadama had denied sexually assaulting the woman at a trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
He also faced two separate charges of failing to appear at court and was found guilty of all three by the jury.
The woman had been in Sauchiehall Street celebrating getting her degree with her friends.
The victim failed to flag down a taxi at the end of the night after losing her handbag which included her phone and insulin pen.
Jadama then approached her near The Garage nightclub.
She said in evidence: “He offered to help my situation and then we started walking up the street from the taxi rank towards the lane.”
The pair stopped at a fence on nearby Elmbank Street.
Jadama asked her to go back to his house, have food and phone her mum.
She added: “He kept pushing me further back towards the fence and that’s when he started groping me over my clothing.
“I was panicked and checked for anyone else in the area.
She said he pushed her against a fence and started to touch her.
Prosecutor Hannah Sweeney asked if she wanted this to happen to her and she replied: “Absolutely not, I vocally made quite clear I didn’t want it to happen. I was saying no.”
She stated that by saying no it felt like it made him try “extra hard” to get her to go back to his flat.
The woman pushed the man away before they walked back to the taxi rank where she got in a cab alone.
A neighbour let her into their building while she contacted her mum on Facebook to tell her where she was.
The woman, who is a diabetic, stated that she felt ill as she had not had her insulin or tested her blood sugar level.
The woman added that she has “vomiting episodes” and felt like it was going to happen.
She said: “I went to her bathroom, fell to the floor, fell unconscious and was vomiting.”
An ambulance took her to hospital where she remained for four to five days.
It is there she said she told police about the sexual assault.
Lewis Kennedy, defending, suggested that the man took the woman to a takeaway on Elmbank Street and she left when he got served.
The woman denied this stating: “I would have no reason to be in (a takeaway) without any money.”
Mr Kennedy asked: “I suggest that the events you describe happening in the lane just didn’t happen and the accused didn’t grope you or touch your body – there was nothing sexual which happened?”
The witness replied: “No, that’s not the truth. I have a clear picture of what happened that night.”
Sentence was deferred until next month pending background reports by sheriff Matthew Jackson QC.
Jadama was put on the sex offenders register and had his remand in custody continued in the meantime.
