A CRAZED Barrhead woman who threw bleach in a shop worker’s face has been spared jail over the rampage.

Taylor Sutherley, 21, “sprayed” bleach on William MacKay, causing it to hit his face, neck and back and land in his eye.

Sutherley then grabbed a tub of Shake n’ Vac and poured the cleaning product on him before throwing a can of juice at him.

The rampage took place in the Poundstretcher store where Mr MacKay works in Barrhead.

At Paisley Sheriff Court in January, Sutherley admitted assaulting him and his colleague Aiden King, on May 30 last year, and assaulting workers Ahmed Altaf and Farooq Sheikh at another shop in the town on March 24 last year.

Charges she behaved in a threatening or abusive way, assaulted another shop worker and stole a box of crisps from a Tesco in the town in May were dropped.

Procurator Fiscal Depute Keri Marshall said the attack on the Poundstretcher workers took place at around 12.30pm.

The prosecutor explained: “She entered the store and was asked to leave the premises. She refused and went to the aisle with the bleach and proceeded to take a bottle from the shelf. The accused then sprayed the bleach at the witness MacKay, coming in to contact with his face, neck, back and eye. She then took a tub of Shake n’ vac and poured the contents on him.”

The court also heard the earlier attack, on Mr Altaf and Mr Sheik, started with Sutherley demanding “gas” and stealing a bar of chocolate, and ended with her threatening the pair with scissors, punching one of them and trying to hit the other with the weapon.

Sheriff Tom McCartney deferred sentence for three months for her to be of good behaviour and she returned to the dock in April to learn her fate.

Defence solicitor Tony Callahan said: “She has had quite significant health issues which have led to her suffering psychologically. She relapsed, for a very brief period, to significant drug misuse.”

After hearing that she had been of good behaviour, despite her difficulties, Sheriff McCartney opted to delay sentencing again, but said she could still be jailed.

When Sutherley, of John Street, Barrhead, returned to the dock last Friday, he placed her on an 18-month-long Community Payback Order.

She was also made the subject of a seven-month Restriction of Liberty Order, under which she will wear an electronic tag and be curfewed from 8pm-8am every day.
