A COURT has heard how a teenager allegedly battered by two Barrhead women was covered in so much blood she looked like “something out of a horror film.”

Michael Smith made the claims while giving evidence at the trial of Catherine Queen and a 17-year-old co-accused who can’t be named for legal reasons.

Queen, 43, and the teenager went on trial at Paisley Sheriff Court charged with leaving another 17-year-old girl, who also can’t be named for legal reasons, scarred for life.

They deny carrying out the assault along with Danielle Queen, 30, and 26-year-old Paul McGurk.

All four are also accused of attacking Michelle McClintock on the same date – January 9 last year – by kicking and punching her head and body, hitting her with a mystery weapon and standing on her head.

They are further accused of behaving in a threatening or abusive way by shouting and swearing, while McGurk alone faces a charge of damaging property by smashing a window with a rock.

Giving evidence, Mr Smith told how he gave first aid to the alleged teenage victim and tried to console her.

He said: “I can only describe her as looking like something out of a horror film. Her hands were out in front of her face and she was screaming uncontrollably.

“There was fear in her eyes. She was bleeding heavily down her face.”

Mr Smith said he found the girl in the garden of a property in Clarkston and went round the corner to find Ms McClintock and another woman fighting.

He added: “There were two females basically rolling about the floor.

“They were both lying on the ground, grappling with each other. They were wrestling.

“Both had a handful of each other’s hair and were rolling about on the ground.

“There didn’t seem to be one person getting the better of the other.”

He said McGurk approached him and said ‘give me a hand, big man’ and they split the warring women apart.

Mr Smith told the court the alleged victim was “extremely distressed” and he could see that she was bleeding from a scalp wound.

He said: “I tried to give her first aid and stem the bleeding. I used an old top I had on at the time and applied pressure to the wound.

“The living room window had been broken.

“I was trying to calm her down and comfort her - she was in a very high state of distress and emotion.

“I put my arm round to try and console her because she was shivering and shaking.”

Catherine Queen, of Balgray Crescent, Barrhead, the 17-year-old accused, who is also from the town, Danielle Queen, of Cardonald, and McGurk, of Glasgow, maintain their innocence and the trial, before Sheriff David Pender, was adjourned until next month.
