A man had to console a woman after she was approached by a “predatory” man in the street.

Anthony Duffy told jurors that he watched the man speak to three or four different woman in a 30 minute period in Glasgow city centre.

Mr Duffy was on duty as a Community Enforcement Officer for Glasgow City Council and captured footage of the man on his camera in Glasgow's Buchanan Street in March 2017.

The 49-year-old added that the man was being “selective” and going after “good looking girls in their early 20s.”

Mr Duffy told jurors that he had to console a woman who was “upset and aggrieved” by the man’s actions.

Adnan Ahamed, 37, is standing trial on 18 charges which include behaving in a threatening and abusive manner as well as sexual assault.

The offences alleged to have occurred in Glasgow city centre and Uddingston, between May 2016 and January this year.

He denies the charges.

Jurors heard that an “Asian man between 30 and 40” approached several females in Glasgow city centre.

Mr Duffy said: “He would approach and follow them then stand off.

“He was selective in his process and it was quite predatory.

“They were all young females in their early 20s.”

Mr Duffy had to console one of the girls who had become upset after speaking to the man.

He said: “The girl was okay when when I was talking to her but when I first approached her she looked quite distressed.”

Mr Duffy was able to record the man using his body camera and contacted the police.

Another witness said that a man approached her after a fireworks display on Glasgow Green in November last year.

The 23-year-old female, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was alone when the man brushed her with his chest several times.

He was told twice to stop but kept following her through a crowd towards the exit.

She said she felt “really uncomfortable” when the man then touched her on the back and ribs.

The woman told jurors: “I was absolutely petrified as I lived close by.

“A group of girls then grabbed me and said ‘come on we’ll get you out’.

“I was scared.”

The trial continues before Sheriff Lindsay Wood.
